Fastpath webchat: HTTP ERROR: 505

Hi,

I’ve started to play with the Fastpath webchat. Every thing looked fine and the webchat worked but it did not create a new room, then I found that I’ve missed to change room cration permissions and changed them. No I had to restart Openfire. After the restart I’ve tried to open the webchat. It told me, that it could not connect to the server. Now I’ve tried to re run webchat setup and got:

HTTP ERROR: 500 INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR RequestURI=/webchat/setup-index.jsp Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

I’ve already tried to uninstall and reinstall the webchat plugin without success.

Can some one please help ?

TIA

Hi, Matthias,

Please, edit your ./work/Catalina/localhost/webchat/org/apache/jsp/setup_002dindex_jsp.java that is the source generated by web server, and check exactly what you have at line 76, i checked mine, that is the last version downloaded, and my one have the follow instruction:

if (doSave) {

This instruction cant be cause of NullPointerException, and maybe your code is old, then i suggest you first, try to get last download and try again, if no works, and you get same problem, please check the source code.

best regards.
