Adcycle Functions
As I am setting up the Adcycle interface I have encountered two problems:

1) If I go to the Admin Panel in Links SQL, then select "Plugins" and then
"Category" under Adcycle, I get the below fatal error if I select any of the
"Add/Delete/View" options:


A fatal error has occured:
GT::SQL (39262): File '/usr/local/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/htdocs/directory/admin/defs/links_Cat_Ad.def' does not exist or the permissions are set incorrectly at /usr/local/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/htdocs/directory/admin/Plugins/Adcycle.pm line 293.

Please enable debugging in setup for more details.


What I can say about this is that the file is missing. The question being -- what should I do to fix this problem?

2) I am not sure how the signin for Adcycle is supposed to work, but I am a
little concerned as far as security issues because once I login in as the
admin to http://www.bestofsimivalley.com/directory/adcycle/adcenter.cgi I
can open a new browser either in a few minutes or the next day under the
same or different IP address and it does not ask for a username and
password. It just assumes that I am still the admin and brings up all of the
user accounts and allows me to edit, delete, or login in to the users
accounts without a password. This seems like a major security blip to me. My
thinking is that if it is using some type of "cookie" then the cookie should
clear as soon as the browser is closed. Thus if a browser is opened again
within 2 or 3 minutes it should require a password again, which is exactly
how the Links SQL admin panel works. I would think that Adcycle should work
the same way.

Not sure about the first one, but as for the second. if you close all your browser windows it should be ok, and ask you for login again when you try and log back in. It uses temp cookies, which are stored in your browsers memory (I believe), so only by closing all browser windows will this get cleared.

Hi AJ,

I guess that as it turns out you have to click "log out," rather than just closing the browser or switching to a different URL for the cookie to be removed. Not real secure if someone gets on your machine and you forgot to click "log out," but we'll just have to try and remember not to do that.

Thanks for your input!
