Jive Admin Error

I have been using JM for about 1 month now, and so far everything has been great until today.

go here and see the error


The server still works fine, just when trying to reach the admin page, it throws

exception errors.

I dont know what happened, as I havent changed anything, and it did

work until today.

I have already restarted server to see if that would help, but it didnt.

Any advice?

Hey blacksnday,

Check that the commons-el.jar file is available in the webapp classpath. The org.apache.commons.el.parser.ELParser class was not found so you need to be sure that commons-el.jar is available.

And to add to Gato’‘s message – that library shouldn’'t have magically dissapeared. Are you sure that nobody was mucking with your installation?



just checked and commons-el.jar is there in the folder


and I am the only one who has access to the Server Admin area-- so I know no one got in there.

I was in the admin section, then once I clicked on the Members area thats when the admin froze and wouldnt load- so then i restarted server and thats when the error showing now started.

maybe try re-adding commons-el.jar?

I’‘m wondering if something else is going wrong and this error isn’‘t the true problem. Can you check what’'s in logs/error.log?



this is the error showing
