files will not open from website

Answered

At my website, Geogebra returns with file not found messages.

The website worked fine during the course year,

but something does not work anymore.

I looked at examples but cannot see why my website fails.

It fails for every browser.


Note that the webpage goes fine when I do not work at the internet,

but open the HTML files directly from my notebook

This goes fine for every browser: Google, Safari, IE and Firefox.


Can anyone tell me what has changed and what I should do?


Kind regards,

Henk Hietbrink

teacher Mathematics The Netherlands


This was the school website

http://home.planet.nl/~hiet...

None of the files will open anymore


This is the latest example

http://home.kpn.nl/hietb071...

http://home.kpn.nl/hietb071...


This is the HTML


<applet code="geogebra.GeoGebraApplet" archive="http://www.geogebra.org/web...; width="1000" height="600">

<param name="filename" value="fvs_gn108_3hoogtelijnen.ggb">

<param name="framePossible" value="false">

<param name="showMenuBar" value="false">

<param name="showToolBar" value="false">

<param name="showAlgebraInput" value="false">

<param name="showResetIcon" value="true"/>

<param name="language" value="nl">

<param name="enableRightClick" value="false">

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started.

</applet>

Hi,

I don't know the answer, but I am very interested in the solution. I am trying to help someone with a similar problem in a Moodle site.


For my two cents, I think the problem is not your HTML code; assuming the .ggb files are (still) in the correct location, it could be due to changes in your server settings or other site settings (probably security-related) --- I can't access the .ggb file directly from your server using the URL you gave. (I also can't see the source code of your webpages [my browsers are blocked from displaying your source code at all]).


When I tried to download your .ggb file from your server I also received an error message for file not found, including this text:

De pagina is niet gevonden

De URL http://home.kpn.nl/hietb071... is niet gevonden op de webserver.


Hoping someone can help us both and wish I could help more,

Peter

Where are the .ggb files on your server?


As the previous poster says, this cannot be accessed:

http://home.kpn.nl/hietb071...

Indeed, IE suggests that the file is NOT present,

but my FTP sessiosn says it IS.


I did some test and read carefully what happened.


0. All applets with .gbb in whatever browser return file not found.

1. Changed the file name to http://home.kpn.nl/hietb071...

IE thinks it is a ZIP file, and indeed it contains the XML and a PNG file.

Note: this file is still available to you.

2. Changed the file name to http://home.kpn.nl/hietb071...

IE thinks it is a ZIP file, and indeed it contains the XML and a PNG file.

3. Changed the HTM file

<applet code="geogebra.GeoGebraApplet" archive="http://www.geogebra.org/web...; width="1000" height="600">

<param name="filename" value="fvs_gn108_3hoogtelijnen.zip">


Now, most browsers do what they should do at my HP notebook with Vista

Firefox 3.0.12 = ok

Opera 9.64 = ok

Google Chrome= ok

Safari 4.02 = ok


IE 8.0.6001 = NOT ok, it does not open the file, but shows something default

So: I hope this will help. Next question, what has ZIP to do with this problem and why does IE bother?

By the way,

I assume this is a very different situation, but I will mention the solution to the problem displaying GeoGebra files in Moodle that my friend was having, in case it helps anyone: it was the php Suhosin extension settings. (The Suhosin extension is an optional php security patch which was set up on his server.) His tried setting the suhosin.request.max_vars to have a higher value than the default of 200 (set to 400); this worked for Linux but not in WIndows. He used the values suggested in this Moodle.org thread: (http://tracker.moodle.org/b...) and he is still working on figuring out the best configuration for the extension. Turning off the extension completely solves the problem. I will post more here if he finds settings that work better.


Best,

Peter

Dear Peter,


It has to do with the new GGB file, containing data and a PNG,

and the new JAR because old stuff doesnot work anymore.

and with browser settings, because Firefox etc work fine when I rename the extension GGB to ZIP, but IE fails for some reason.


Dear Geogebra team,

I would like to see an example that does work with the new JAR etc.


Kind regards,

Henk Hietbrink

It's a problem with your server. Your files work fine from these two locations:

Thanks for your help.

It is IE that cannot cope with scripts in combination with Geogebra.

In your test you copied the HTML without the SCRIPT.

So, I turned off the script and saw that Geogebra worked fine.

This page could do without.


Conclusion: be carefull with advanced scripts because some browsers might encounter difficulties.


It might be the server because I still use .ZIP as extension instead of .GGB

I have a teacher who has put a Geogebra file into a webpage (html). The ggb file and html file are both in the same folder with the jar files, etc.


But, when you go to the webpage and expect the Geogebra file to open automatically, it returns an Opening File Failed error. When you click the OK button, a blank Geogebra worksheet comes up, but not the one that was created.


If you try to go directly to the file, the results returned are Page Not Found. This happens in both Firefox and IE. Using Vista machines.


Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get this to work correctly? I have exported the file correctly, and can open the file locally and have the Geogebra file open correctly, but not when it goes through the web server.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We've just added a feature to solve this problem (some servers don't like ggb files).


Go into the Advanced tab of the Worksheet Export dialog and uncheck the "Geogebra Files" checkbox. The ggb file will then be embedded in the HTML and it should just work... :)

I do not have a box checked or unchecked that says Geogebra Files.


Let me make sure we are talking about the same place.


I have the Geogebra File open. I go to the File menu and choose Export....Dynamic Worksheet as Webpage (html).


Go to Advanced Tab where I see Functionality and User Interface categories.


Under Functionality, I see Enable Right Click features, Enable dragging of labels, Show icon to reset construction, Double click opens application window.


Under User Interface, I see Show menu bar, Show tool bar, Show input bar.


Then at the bottom, I see Java Applet - archive = "http://www.geogebra.org/web...;


Thanks for helping!

Sorry, should have said: make sure you're using the latest version:

http://www.geogebra.org/webstart/

Okay. I think we are making progress. I did not get the File Not Found message, and it did appear to embed the ggb file in the html file, but there was a red X in the top left corner of the embedded ggb file. So, it still isn't opening.


In the browser status bar, the following message appears:


Loading Java Applet Failed.


I am running Java 1.5.


What else do I need to install?


Again, thanks so much for helping!

Also, I decided to remove all the jar files and start fresh, but when I Exported using the new version and unchecking the Geogebra Files checkbox, none of the jar files were recreated........

Try checking/unchecking the archive="etc checkbox

Well, it was unchecked, so I checked it and it seems to be working!

Here's a link to to a page on our web site with some GeoGebra applets.


http://www.ranger.cc.tx.us/...


Look at #16 on lines. Here I have two different applets--one created with 3.0, and the second created with 3.2. It seems to work ok with IE, but I haven't tried it with other browsers.

Goodevening, I'am back in town.

My school stuff does not work and it might be true that my provider is due to the problem.

Why do servers don't like gbb files?

How can I complain and what should I say?


The embedded applet (Export .. uncheck) does work, but I want my pupils to generate GBB.


Kind regards

Dear team,


Finally, I put the gbb files at the server of another provider.

Now my problem is solved for Firefox, but still problems with Vista IE 8.
