500 Error, "Can't find master page `'.general.'` ! | Forum

I have been very happy with oxwall so far.  It is far and away better than any other social network sites I have used.  A few days ago, this message appeared and the site has not worked since.  I had not altered anything in two days before the error, so I do not know what may have caused it.  I would appreciate any help! Thank you

1. Can you make sure that DEV_MODE is disabled on your site.
2. Do you have two sites using one database?

Our developers are saying that this problem occurs sometimes, but 9 times out of 10 it happens on a local installation. And usually on a Windows installations. So, we are digging into this problem more deeply and will keep you posted.

Hi Aliia,

I installed Oxwall on local host and i am using Windows. When I tried to modify theme, I got 500 error. Do you have any solution for it yet?

Anastasiaa to help you I need to know what error is behind 500 error. Check this topic http://www.oxwall.org/forum/topic/4661 . Let me know what the actual error message is once you find this out.
