Config.xml problem

Config.xml problem

(OP)
Hi,

I hope I haven't already posted this question, but I have a Config.xml file that I purchased, and it keeps throwing an error. Here's the code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
<img_back>img/back.jpg</img_back>
<phpURL>php/guest.php</phpURL>
<alert_color>#FF0000</alert_color>
<name_color>#8d2405</name_color>
<message_color>#532b2b</message_color>
<datePosted_color>#307a03</datePosted_color>
<insert_ok><![CDATA[<font color='#0f5711'>Thanks for the message.</font>]]></insert_ok>
<insert_error><![CDATA[<font color='#ff0000'>Error adding Message</font>]]></insert_error>
</configuration>

Anyone see an error? Any help appreciated!

RE: Config.xml problem

You posted the question once already, back in April.
People have asked for more info, you never posted back though.

With this little info it is impossible to tell what might be up. The XML is well-formed that is all I can say.

CODE

a Config.xml file that I purchased, and it keeps throwing an error. 
1.) WHAT error does "it" throw and WHEN?
2.) What is "it"?

Hi, Chris,

Sorry about the double-posting! I'm an 85 year old retired musician who has built a Website - jimmybryant.net - (please visit). I bought the highly-touted "MGRAPH Flip Guestbook" (the "it" in the last message), which is advertised as being amazingly simple to install (Oh, YEAH?) and have had problems beyond belief!

By the way, part of the delay between responses is because my doctors keep throwing me in the Hospital - last time for more STENTS in my heart!

HOWEVER - since my last post, the code seems to have started working, and I'm going to try to finish it. Thanks to all you guys who are willing to give your time to those of us who desperately need help!

Sincerely,

Jimmyb

Hi, Chris,

Here's the last version of the config.XML file that I'm STILL trying to make work:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
<img_back>image/back.jpg</img_back>
<phpURL>/home/users/web/b2713/jpg.jimmybryantnet.php</phpURL>
<alert_color>#FF0000</alert_color>
<name_color>#8d2405</name_color>
<message_color>#532b2b</message_color>
<datePosted_color>#307a03</datePosted_color>
<insert_ok><![CDATA[<font color='#0f5711'>Thanks for the message.</font>]]></insert_ok>
<insert_error><![CDATA[<font color='#ff0000'>Error adding Message</font>]]></insert_error>
</configuration>

I know this is where the problem is, as I get the error, "Error adding Message", and it stops working.
If I can get past this, I'll be done! Is there supposed to be a "?" in the phpURL statement?

Thanks again for your kind help!

Jimmyb
