Invalid Configuration-Aborting boot message

Post by 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.

I put it in a folder on my website: http://www.eaholidays.co.uk/soon%20folder/index.html

Its just a test page to see if it works.

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/co ... nt/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.
