Invalid Configuration-Aborting boot message

Postby Phil40 » 13 Feb 2018, 10:02

I have tried several time to export html5 documents to my web server I always get the above message.

I have noted that .json not being enabled is often suggested as a cause so I checked that first. My server has json enabled.

I have had Fasthosts testing it for a couple of days and all they can say is that every script they run works fine - they say the problem is in the script craeted by QuarkExpress.

Any ideas please.

(I am a novice)

Hello Phil,

There are two possibilities here:
1. The Server is unable to fetch Json. OR
2. Json is malformed.

Could you pleas share the URL, where you hosted the HTML5 output to analyze further.

In the console, we can see that reader-config.json is not accessible.

http://www.eaholidays.co.uk/soon%20fold ... 9278442339 404 (Not Found)

There are two possibilities for this to happen:
• Folder where HTML5 is hosted does not has read permissions.
• It seems you are using IIS 7.5, which requires additional steps to load .json files.

Please try this:
• Checks permissions of the files in the exported package.
• If the MIME type is not added, please add it to the IIS configuration.
Extension - .json
MIME Type – application/json

Steps to add MIME type: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/configuration/system.webServer/staticContent/mimeMap

Hi Sarbjit

I am confused - I don't really understand your reply but - I am not hosting this on my PC. It is uploaded to a server at 'FASTHOSTS' who are a hosting service.
