[Mapbender-users] Cannot change application security permissions after mapbender update

Hi Joel,


you have to option. First you could edit the file app_dev.php with a shell-based Editor like vi or nano and remove temporally the lines 12-18:

if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'])


   || !in_array(@$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'], array('', 'fe80::1', '::1'))

) {

   header('HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden');

   exit('You are not allowed to access this file. Check '.basename(__FILE__).' for more information.');



Then you can open the dev controller from everywhere. Please be advised that this is a huge security risk, cause error pages in this mode will leak sensitive information! So, you have to reenable this security feature afterwards! Second options would be to tunnel the http port of your server to your local machine via ssh. Then you can open the application from your machine. 


Best regards David

Did you try doing an install and then an upgrade?


php version is PHP 7.2.24-0ubuntu0.18.04.7


Unfortunately I cannot run dev mode, as this is running on a cloud hosted server that I do not have a GUI on. Is there a way to run it from a system other than localhost?

I looked in the documentation and it says " Symfony offers a developer mode with lot of information about your application (logging, exceptions, database queries, memory usage, time and more). This mode is only available from localhost."

Hello Joel,

I can not reproduce the error. Everything works fine at my installation.

Did you try the app_dev.php mode too?

What is your php version?
