  • version = 5.5.5 -  ~~~ Does UNA run better under 7.2? Surely it would. What is the highest, safest version of PHP which UNA runs on?
  • disable_functions = exec,passthru,system,shell_exec - FAIL (must be without shell_exec,eval,assert,phpinfo,getenv,ini_set,mail,fsockopen,chmod,parse_ini_file,readfile,esc ~~~ What exactly is missing or misconfigured? Why the failure here? Could it be in my access file? php ini file? user php file?
  • Thank you for reviewing my problem!

Hackers anymore need not sit in a dark room late at night with their hoodies on. They can go to bed and just turn their automated bots loose to find, inspect, and chew your server up and spit it out...

And when you think you've got it all cleaned up, they will march back in there like they own the place. If you have as much as an old contact form or an outdated Wordpress theme or plug-in - you are done.

Just to confirm, please:  Does UNA require POST and HEAD requests for it's full operation and updates? I may need to adjust my htaccess file, you see.

   Thank you.

Reposted Fine's discussion.

Cant fix the rewrite module error, this is what I see and what I have completed to resolve, no solution yet.

Web-server: Apache/2.4.25 (Debian) 

  • rewrite_module - FAIL (you will need to install rewrite_module for Apache)


CMD>  sudo a2enmod rewrite

Module rewrite already enabled

CMD> apachectl -M 2>&1 | grep rewrite_module 

 rewrite_module (shared)



.htaccess is also correct as per UNA: 

/page/login -> NOT LOADING


✅ Enable friendly permalinks for Pages
✅ Enable friendly permalinks for Modules
✅ Enable friendly permalinks for local Storage




All help is very much needed and appreciated, this is the first time I am doing this. Thank you for helping.

Hi all,

I have deleted and reinstalled Messenger but it still will not update to the latest version on my VPS with TMD Hosting. Because it has a missing table in the database, according to the Error pop-up box. A missing table that has to do with notifications, as you can see.

The module works but will not update. Jot Server (for Messenger) is installed and the port link is correct and, I trust, is open. The url is:

All caches were cleared. I might add that I had not used Messenger in the past because of shared server limitations. Now I need the newest version with the Video functions.

Any ideas to fix? Thank you!

There are some unresolved css errors on this very discussion index. Right here on the UNA site. At least on the Mac desktop/laptop. Safari and Brave. The margins are cutting things off as you can see in the enclosed screenshot. Notice how both main columns end abruptly. Look closely. Some individual letters are split.

This looks very amateurish - not at all typical of the high quality code on this site. 

Is it possible I need to clear my browser cache? Surely someone has already brought this up. I haven't been here for awhile, you see. But, as always, I am glad to be back...

Hello from Tennessee, all my dear UNAtarian friends,

The Cold War is over. Most of us and our clients today are not dealing with government secrets. So, there is nobody looking over our shoulders 99.99 percent of the time. If they were, we could just twist or tilt our device screens a little bit...

For every person who has been "protected" by the cutesy little password balls - a thousand others have been frustrated. Or worse, they have needlessly been sent to "password recovery" hell.

Could these balls be eliminated altogether or could users be given the option to view the literal password as it is entered? 

If so, please make the default as the actual characters of the password. Most people will prefer this, imo, once they get used to it. Which will not take long. Haha.

I think the coding is simple. Perhaps it can be done via Custom Template Additions. If not, where is the file that needs to be adjusted?

We all want the easiest and fastest access to our sites. 

Much thanks for your consideration.

The Sounds Module is optional but is a very good module. I highly recommend it. 

I hope later editions will play the audio right in the Timeline, just as videos can be played there. Why? Because the less clicking and tapping a visitor has to do, the happier he or she will be and more likely to return. 

OK, looking at my enclosure just below, can anyone explain how I can eliminate the computer code. These links lead to a 404 error page, btw. 

Much thanks!

Update: I changed some CSS which resulted in making the icon invisible. As I passed the cursor over the area... it became 'visible' again.

Please learn from my mistake!  ***

How can I pull this off? Certainly we do not want a standard user to "edit any discussion". Only to edit their own. 

In the system, "Comments edit own" is checked. 

Also, I notice I cannot edit these replies even as a moderator or administrator although I have those permissions.

Thank you.

The notifications for manual membership confirmation (activation) fail - whether 1 or 10 at a time. In the Accounts module.

My other site notifications are fine so I presume my address is OK. I have successfully sent a test email via the SMPT module, but I do not use SMPT itself.

Any ideas? Much thanks.
