Hi

I'm trying to install LimeSurvey on Windows hosting, but I have stumbled into the following error for installation:-

Internal Server Error
symlink(): Cannot create symlink, error code(1314)

An internal error occurred while the Web server was processing your request. Please contact the webmaster to report this problem.

Thank you.

It seems permissions based.

There is this function called symlink() in /limesurvey/framework/web/CAssetManager.php on line 243 that seems to be utilizing these folders:-
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\third_party\jquery
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\tmp\assets\bd57646a
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\third_party\jqueryui
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\tmp\assets\bf6dab84
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\third_party\fontawesome
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\tmp\assets\ba340ac4
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\application\extensions\bootstrap
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\tmp\assets\8051338c
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\application\extensions\bootstrap\assets
D:\home\jn-devsite.com\wwwroot\limesurvey\tmp\assets\7559c168


Has anybody encountered this before and does one know how to fix this?
I read up a little on the search engines and they mentioned disabling the LinkAssets option, but am unsure where that is...

? What version did you use ?
Because symling creation was disabled in our stable version (in general).

Hi

This version is 2.57
I found that the setting for LinkAssets was set to false

I could comment out: symlink($src,$dstDir); on line 243 and it shows the installation, but that's probably going to have dire consequences on this I'm sure...

Sorry, on of the dev broke it.

For now, just remove that line (or set it to false):
github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/ma..._Application.php#L87

we'll fix it in next release

yes I've seen that. He just commented and uncommented the same line, so he probably thought he inactivate it, but he didn't :silly:

I put the comment : config.php is done for this.

Hi there. You mentioned I should remove a line?
Which line are you referring to?

I also added 'linkAssets'=>false to the following line of code in application\config\internal.php :-

'assetManager' => array(
'excludeFiles' => array("config.xml", "assessment.pstpl", "clearall.pstpl", "completed.pstpl", "endgroup.pstpl", "endpage.pstpl", "groupdescription.pstpl", "load.pstpl", "navigator.pstpl", "printanswers.pstpl", "print_group.pstpl", "print_question.pstpl", "print_survey.pstpl", "privacy.pstpl", "question.pstpl", "register.pstpl", "save.pstpl", "startgroup.pstpl", "startpage.pstpl", "surveylist.pstpl", "survey.pstpl", "welcome.pstpl" ),
'baseUrl' => '/tmp/assets',
'basePath'=> dirname(dirname(dirname(__FILE__))).DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'tmp'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'assets',
),


It didn't work. Should that now be taken out?

yes we update the code, so the link is no more valid.
Remove this line:
github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/11..._Application.php#L87
