Admin Dashboard not displaying correctly and other bugs

Hi all,

I’ve been having problems with my instance of Omeka at:

When I log in, the dashboard display as this:

Also noticed the errors like this one:

“Fatal error: Class ‘DOMDocument’ not found in /var/www/html/omeka_archive/application/libraries/Zend/Xml/Security.php on line 82”

And one of my neatline exhibits reset itself. I think I can fix it, but can’t try because I can’t get to it in the dashboard. It should have a custom layer as background and begin zoomed in to the center of the map.

Any thoughts?

“Fatal error: Class ‘DOMDocument’ not found in /var/www/html/omeka_archive/application/libraries/Zend/Xml/Security.php on line 82”

That error indicates that you don’t have the necessary PHP extensions installed. This one is the “dom” extension, (sometimes just provided by a php-xml package in some distributions).

Thanks. I will forward that on to our IT department.

Any ideas about the admin dashboard not functioning properly?

The broken dashboard looks like it’s an HTTP/HTTPS issue: you’re loading the site over HTTPS, but it thinks you’re using HTTP and is generating links accordingly.

This can happen if you’re handling HTTPS at a higher layer than Omeka can “see” so we then have trouble detecting whether to use HTTPS URLs.

Thanks for all the help!

I’ve been in contact with our university IT dept and we are working on fixing this. I’ll post here if we encounter any other issues. Thanks again!
