Can I at least post the images?

Alright, whatever. So apparently I can't post images here... so basically the database is setup and it's installed correctly and everything but whenever I click on the URL's that were preset from the website install it puts cgi-sys in the URL and it should not be doing that.

You are able to attach images to your posts.



This sounds like a configuration issue with the website software.
I have been in contact with the software creator. He said that apparently our webservers don't have __DIR__ php function correctly however we run IPS Community Suite 4 and that works fine. The previous version of gBan web application worked. It is just the 3.2.0 update that we're having an issue with

None of the images you linked to are of any value to help with your issue here. No need to re-post those.

You might want to speak with your Hosting Provider about this. Your forums profile lists you as Website Owner, you wouldn't have any access to PHP options for the server as a Website Owner.

I work for a server hosting company, we use WHMCS and stuff, I own a website but my actual job was not listed. I am a Support Agent. Could you help me further on a private conversation please? I can provide screenshots etc there

I've just taken a closer look at your website, and note the links on the bans page in footer. Those links I assume, are created in the admin area for that page, or the config file for the software itself.

This isn't an issue with your cPanel though.

Would you like me to send you the web application files? It isn't hard coded however it used to be when it worked.

No need. You should check your settings a bit closer. Something somewhere, and for that bans list page only, is a setting for URLs that needs modified. Your forums links all work fine, your discord and other links work fine.
I know which is why I'm getting confused. I didn't obviously make the website or anything but I'm not too sure what I am looking for in the code. Because on the previous version which was 3.1.0 it was hard coded so all worked fine. I just don't get why it's adding cgi-sys to the URL

I know the links for this site has some place that they can be edited, a config file or settings page, as on the bans page, in footer where it says copyright, there's a link, and that link has a typo, it does not work. The URL is missing a, : in the http://

So there's somewhere to edit settings, you should recheck those.

I'm going to re-install the website to make sure the installation was correct.

Once configured properly, I'm sure. You should recheck your settings, or reinstall it from the top and watch closely for the configuration options during setup.
I have tried the re-install many of times even with new databases and users and everything. I have an error_log file and it's throwing out this -

Well, you should expect errors, it's not installed, or configured properly.

I've located the page where this script is offered for sale and has instructions on installing it. Item #3 for installation says this:

1. Edit the configs as required

So, I think you should find those configs and check to see if there's a base URL option or something similar. Once on that bans page, if you look at source for the page ALL links are showing with cgi-sys in URL. That tells us there's a default, base URL being called from somewhere in the configuration.

I know it's all installed correctly on my end. It's the way the software was made clearly. I am getting console errors in F12 as well, take a look -
