Can't access paths outside of a folder

Reported by: Bangyou Zheng Owned by: Christian Boos
Priority: normal Component: DoxygenPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description (last modified by Ryan J Ollos)

My system is windows server 2003 enterprise edition service pack. Trac version is 0.11.5. DoxygenPlugin is to check out from svn.

The setting in TracIni is:

path = D:/xampp/htdocs/project/doc
html_output = html

But I get a error message like this

Can't access paths outside of D:/xampp/htdocs/project/doc

How can I fix the problem?

Thank you very much

What is the URL you're trying to browse when that error appears? Please also give the relevant excerpt of your trac.log, at DEBUG level.

Also, I assume that path exists and contains the html folder?

The url is:

Of course, the path is exists and contains a html folder

My problem have been solved by just comment "security check". This is the diff file:


    6262      'cpp cxx c hpp hxx h',
    6363      """Space separated list of source files extensions""")
    65     index = Option('doxygen', 'index', 'main.html',
     65    index = Option('doxygen', 'index', 'index.html',
    6666      """Default index page to pick in the generated documentation.""")
    6868    wiki_index = Option('doxygen', 'wiki_index', None,
    163163        # security check
    164164        path = os.path.abspath(path)
    165         if not path.startswith(self.base_path):
    166             raise TracError("Can't access paths outside of " + self.base_path)
     165        #if not path.startswith(self.base_path):
     166        #    raise TracError("Can't access paths outside of " + self.base_path)
    168168        # view
    169169        mimetype = mimetypes.guess_type(path)[0]

I've also considered your other change (set the default index to 'index.html' instead of 'main.html'). There's a problem with that change:

  • if you're using the GENERATE_TREEVIEW mode, by including index.html you'll get the frameset, so you see nothing but there's no error: that's hard to troubleshoot; with main.html everything is fine in this case
  • if you're not using GENERATE_TREEVIEW, by including main.html you'll get at least an error which is then easy to troubleshoot

So I'll leave that change for the day the plugin supports the GENERATE_TREEVIEW mode of Doxygen.
