frio theme - Service Unavailable


Hi there @Friendica Support
just changed on this profile to FRIO as VIER seems to basically not perform the basic functions.

When I try to go to the settings page I get a "Service Unavailable" page.

What should I do?

friendica 2023.05 - firefox

@Tutorial i think the view directory or so needs to be writable.. if that helps

@Tutorial Strange is that your account is reported as DFRN contact and not ActivityPub . But that is unrelated to this issue. Just what I have observed.

thx for that observation @Roland Häder, there is definitely something wrong with the forum pages over here, at least with those created by the related account of @Tutorial .

Still trying to define what's wrong for the consequent error or bug report.

This might have something to do with a setting by the previous hosting in local.config.php, there is a post in the helpers forum about that wrong setting.
Maybe there is still a change necessary from 'localhost' to '127.0.0.1', I didn't find the time yet to address and test that.

@TupambAdmin [stable] I thank that part with #DFRN is that @Tutorial is a group/forum and not a normal account but I might be wrong. So please report your issue at https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues

Looks like I can't answer here with the admin profile.
FRIO gives the same error over here.

/edit
I can comment but the comment doesn't show up in the stream.
I had to open the page in a new tab.
