New issue 1981 by bra...@gmail.com: Can't save General Settings after
upgrade from 1.5.2
What version are you running?
1.5.3, upgraded from 1.5.2
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Login as admin
2. Go to Settings -> General Settings
3. Save (with or without changing anything)
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expect it to say "The settings have been saved."
Instead it puts an error message above the "Search index file:" field that
"Search index path should be absolute." and it won't let me save.
The "Search index file" field is currently empty and has always been
empty. But I can't change it now to satisfy the error checker since search
is disabled. I can't enable search because PyLucene isn't installed. So I
can't save General Settings.
What operating system are you using? What browser?
OS: SLES-11 is where ReviewBoard is installed
Browser: Firefox 3.5.9 on SLES-11 & Google Chrome 8.0.552.237 on Windows
Please provide any additional information below.
I used to be able to change these settings. At that time, I was using
version 1.5.2 and the Apache configuration was not setup to use https. I
have modified the configuration to use https and also upgraded to 1.5.3
