3. If you get a 500 error OR white page, enable Maximum Error Reporting in Joomla! Global Config and visit the page again, this should give you a more detailed error and help us provide a prompt response.

I have followed all the instructions for the upgrade to v2.2.8, however, every time I try to manually update the events from a remote ical url is says this:

"bImporting events from ical file http://email.canyonsdistrict.org/owa/ca ... lendar.ics
I hope this is a URL!!"

The screen stays put on the page with that message.

This has worked flawlessly before, but since the upgrade to v2.2.8 it does not work anymore. I even uninstalled 2.2.8 and re-installed v1.5.6 and it worked without any issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Did you enable the Mootools upgrade plugin?

Geraint, I enabled the maximum error reporting. This is the report when I try manually updating the calendar:

bImporting events from ical file http://email.canyonsdistrict.org/owa/ca ... lendar.ics
I hope this is a URL!!

5.2.15. The server is currently running on Mac OC 10.5, and according to our tech it will be a painful upgrade. We have a new server that we will eventually move to with the latest PHP version, etc, but that may be awhile before we get everything in place.

Hello,

I suspect it might be causes by PHP that version is very old and upgrading php is not normally very hard. EasyApache is quite good.

You are importing from a windows server (at a guess) and Microsoft, in its wisdom, chooses not to use industry standard timezone names.

Find the method convertWindowsTzid in the file administrator/components/com_jevents/libraries/iCalImport.php and add this as a new exception

Code: Select all
$wtzdata["Mountain Standard Time"] = "America/Denver";


I'll include it for JEvents 3.0

Geraint,

Thanks for your response. I don't see this file "iCalImport.php" in the directory you specified: "administrator/components/com_jevents/libraries"

However, I do see the file (iCalImport.php) inside the /components/com_jevents/libraries, but it appears the following line of code is already in there.

Code: Select all
$wtzdata["Mountain Standard Time"] = "America/Denver";

Are you sure that version of the file is on your server too and not just your local pc?
