aSseptic

Thank you so much for finding the cure.
I spent 2 days looking for the solution and your solution actually solved it.

I notice on latest upgrade, line 1252 has been changed as you said, but "define" was not added.
I just copied and paste define('DONT_SAVE_PERMISSIONS_IN_BACKGROUND', true); at the top of the permission.php
and it worked finally.

Thanks again

Just as a note, future reference and follow up, this fix has been applied some versions ago already. So whoever has servers that are not compatible with some settings should no longer experience this issue.

Thank you again once more for your findings, greatly appreciated! :)

Best regards,
Francisco

Re: FIX - Can't change user permissions

Hi all,

I'm the friend of tverdouw

this is a real problem (bug) that occur only with fengoffice running under UNIX machine.

the bug is located in the /application/helpers/permissions.php file and affects two functions save_member_permissions_background and save_user_permissions_background

the problem is the call of the exec function without any check. infact if the function is disabled, does not exists or simply we don't have privileges to use it, the error occur.

a possible solution can be to add something like the code below at the top of the permissions.php file

https://gist.github.com/aSeptik/9643471

hope this help

The problem still exists with version 2.7.1.1

With the suggested code at the top of the permissions file the module permissions are now saved.

it still has problems with workspace permissions though when editing permissions from a user. When I change the permission from one option of a workspace (expl. Read only to Read & Write for Time) it resets all other to Read Only. The only way I can make sure that all permissions are set correctly is to set all Workspace Options to Read Only, save, then modify the user's permissions again to set the correct/new workspace permissions. Alternatively, I can also set the correct permissions by setting them for each user inside the settings of a workspace instead of inside the permissions of a user.

yes, that's wired.
Seem's the new user I added has a empty workspace.
I'm using 2.7.11, it's installed in Bluehost Cpanel.
Any suggestion?

It seems that there is no any improvement in new version... Should I do it in my file too? Cause I have the same problem...

@tverdouw  - just a quick note of thanks.  I'm using 3.0-beta and those fixes worked for me!
