This thread is for all your simple questions about installing and running Wakaba or Kareha, that just require quick answers. Please don't create any more new threads for issues like that, post them in here instead.

101 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-17 09:22 ID:wD3z/7Gh [Del]

you could try changing the #! line to:

#!/usr/bin/perl -t

and then adding this line after it:

no warnings qw(taint);

lol it works now, the problem was that the -t in the hash bang was a capped T, after I made it lowercase it worked.

103 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-18 15:11 ID:Heaven [Del]

There is now another problem. The script is not creating the reply pages needed. e.g /res/1.html does not exist.

I can't get my kareha or wakaba boards to convert images to thumbnail, so I'm currently using stupid_thumbnailing
I have ImageMagick installed and it works fine from cmd.
Any suggestions?

106 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-19 07:42 ID:l2svyCMe [Del]

Yes, post in the right thread.

Apart from that, what OS?

Sorry :(
Windows server (WAMP5+ActivePerl+ImageMagick)
btw, "install linux" is not a very good asnwer for me...I've heard it a hundred times already T_T
...I know there is a way to get this to work on windows...I'm just an internet noob I guess :-/
Any healp greatly apprecieted :3

Running on Windows seems to lead to random and difficult to track down problems. Good luck with that. has some hints, and maybe there are some others if you dig through the board, but beyond that, I can't really say.

109 Name: Zarxrax : 2006-04-20 19:08 ID:6fgF7SGa [Del]

I would like to place ads on my kareha board. They are text ads and are generated from some javascript code. If I put it in one of the include files though, it doesnt appear on the board. Normal text that I place in there shows, but the text from the javascript doesn't.

110 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-20 20:07 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]

This is probably because they are google ads, and don't allow stripping out newlines, which the template code does by default. There's an option in to turn this off, but I forget the name. STRIP_NEWLINES or something.

111 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-20 23:02 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>110 why is that, anyway?

112 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-21 17:04 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


Why it strips them, or why Google ads won't work? I don't know about the latter, but the former is because Kareha needs posts on a single line, so I designed the template engine to strip them (because I did not exactly feel like writing templates on a single line), and so that behavior carried over into other places where it wasn't strictly necessary, but didn't really hurt either (except for breaking the Google ads).

Using debian, I get the following after trying to create a new database using sqlite.

Do you get that repeatedly, or only the first time? If the latter, that's perfectly normal. If the former, try running the command-line sqlite tool to see what's actually in the database.

PS: This thread exists.

115 Name: Joe, again : 2006-04-23 03:37 ID:7yiY20Yr [Del] there anyone running on windows that might be able to help me with thumbnailing?
I've tried looking at the problem myself, but to be honest, I don't really know a lot about perl. I can get convert to execute, so ImageMagic isn't the problem. I'm just so confused :-/

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
(I read #RunningOnWindows over a few doesn't help me, since perl is in the right dir and imagemagick works.)

116 Name: IntensityBill!FuckDAvne. : 2006-04-28 07:28 ID:+aVh5/yL [Del]

If you got Q8 like "RunningOnWindows" recommended, try getting Q16. I /think/ that's how mine started working, but to be honest, I have no idea why anything at the beginning of the entire setup process was as difficult as it was or even started working.

117 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-29 19:36 ID:twHqFJYy [Del]

I have made several other wakaba and kareha boards without any problem on Linux systems. However, I recently moved to a new server that uses Windows Server. I had several issues that I already sorted out (DBI wasn't installed), and now there's only one left. When I try to access the management panel, it hangs for about 2 minutes and then says:
CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.
I don't have administrator access, so I can't easily get more information, but I will try.
Any clues?

118 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-29 20:11 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


Can you post to the board? Sounds a bit like it locks up at some point and then times out, probably when trying to access the database.

119 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-29 20:27 ID:twHqFJYy [Del]

120 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-29 22:04 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]

Man, I have no idea what's going on there. I suggest you follow the program flow for the login procedure, and put in die statements along the way to see how far it gets before it locks up.

121 Name: EleoChan!EhVtXXdTd6 : 2006-04-30 05:10 ID:faVELnEZ [Del]

What is it in wakaba's .htaccess that causes this to happen:

I noticed that when I removed wakaba's .htaccess this didn't occur when static stats pages were generated (with both awstats and webalizer). Since I suck at .htaccess I figured you'd be able to tell me what I can remove/edit without messing everything up.

Wakaba is currently installed to the root folder so it's so don't really have options as to where to put /statistics instead.

I'm so sleepy.

122 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-30 05:29 ID:twHqFJYy [Del]

I did as you suggested, here's the line of code that is causing it:
print "Status: 303 Go West\n";

when I told it to die just before this, it died properly
when I told it to die just after, it gave the original error, but no long pause

123 Name: Anonymous : 2006-04-30 05:51 ID:twHqFJYy [Del]

It's fixed
but I had an odd little problem
I changed ALTERNATE_REDIRECT to 1 in config, but it didn't actually use the alternate redirect
so I changed the code in to force it to use it, and now it works
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction

124 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-30 07:38 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


.htaccess is set up to send files as application/xml+xhtml when the browser supports it, which causes the browser to parse it much stricter. It looks like you edited the template and broke the <!DOCTYPE statement.


Oh yeah, I remember now that ALTERNATE_REDIRECT is sometimes needed on Windows machines. But I'm not sure why it won't use it properly. I'll look into it.

125 Name: EleoChan!EhVtXXdTd6 : 2006-04-30 14:38 ID:faVELnEZ [Del]

Nuh uh, I didn't do anything to the template.

I had to comment out the last block from wakaba's .htaccess

#<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#RewriteEngine On
#RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} application/xhtml\+xml
#RewriteRule \.html$ - [T=application/xhtml+xml;charset=utf-8]

126 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-04-30 20:55 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


Oh wait, I misunderstood what was happening. The web statistics tools don't generate valid XHTML, so when Apache tries to send them as application/xhtml+xml, Firefox activates the strict parser and breaks.

I guess the simplest solution is to just comment those lines out like you did.

127 Name: EleoChan!EhVtXXdTd6 : 2006-04-30 22:08 ID:faVELnEZ [Del]

Oh okay I get what's going on.

128 Name: Anonymous : 2006-05-16 22:23 ID:2ia92g5k [Del]

I have two questions. How much does bandwidth does kareha use during peak usage? And also, is there any way for me to change the thread list at the top of each page so that it displays in a table, like on world4ch?

129 Name: Squeeks!OK8FhyWNXk : 2006-05-17 02:12 ID:WeHbwBhO [Del]

4-ch goes through about 5-15kb/s, that's anywhere from 240MiB to several Gb per day. We average it out to be close to 1GiB a day*.

  • We're running mod_deflate, so those numbers arent entirely acurrate, YMMV.

130 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-05-17 02:59 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


If you just want a to put each entry on its own line, you can add a display:block to the a elements in the thread list in the CSS files. I forget where exactly... threadbox a { display:block } maybe.

If you want an actual table with with more data, you'll have to edit to do that.

131 Name: Anonymous : 2006-05-17 16:15 ID:2ia92g5k [Del]

How many unique users do you have? I'm betting I won't have as many unique users as 4-ch for quite awhile, so the best way I could approximate how much bandwidth my board would use is if I knew the average bandwidth used by each user, or maybe per hit.

Thanks, now I understand. By the way, congrats on the new version!

Thanks for answering these questions for me!

132 Name: Anonymous : 2006-05-23 20:50 ID:HbwQ9box [Del]

is there a way to make a link to web pages that have some name in front of it like:

<a href="" >example sight</a >

that results in a the text "example sight" to be linked to

Click "More options..." and pick HTML formatting.

134 Name: Anonymous (moved from other thread) : 2006-05-30 03:38 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]

I've done everything, installing Perl and Apache, fixing the Hashbangs (though I don't get how you're supposed to set permissions to 755, as I can't understand anything on the Kareha Quickstart page). Still, it does not work, nothing does. I've read through the documentation time and time again and I personally don't find it detailed enough; it's confusing and I think I'm placing the wrong files in the wrong directories. I've been at this for a week now, as I'd like to get a Kareha-site up and running for a few mates of mine.

So, is there a more detailed walkthrough on setting up your own Kareha image board? Or am I to keep trying to decipher the documentation? Thanks.

135 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-05-30 03:44 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]

First off, use this thread for support requests.

Second, unless you tell us what problems you have, there's not much we can do to help. Setting up Kareha itself is a very simple task, and there's not much need for a walkthrough. The trick part is usually getting CGI scripts working in the first place, if you're installing a server from scratch. Guides for how to do that are available elsewhere on the net. I don't have any good links at hand, though, but Google will help, and maybe somebody else could mention a good guide?

Also read the 500 Internal Server error thread for hints: - especially post 4. Try to get the test program working first. Only when that works should you start installing Kareha.

136 Name: silvernode : 2006-06-05 17:40 ID:/iNykqoR [Del]

Ok, I know that to install wakaba i need either a server or a host. Only problem is I have a server and i dont know how to go about installing wakaba. Im new to this and need some help.

137 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-06 04:34 ID:l2svyCMe [Del]


  1. Create a database for your board.
  2. Upload the files from
  3. Edit (The SQL_ options and ADMIN_PASS at the very least).
  4. Change the permissions on (and maybe to 755, and the permissions on the directories to 777.
  5. Go to http://.../

i need an over all better description on how to do this exactly. Very precise cuz i have no idea what im doing but i want this to work its causing me to lose sleep.

140 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-07 04:22 ID:Heaven [Del]

Then I think you'll be better off looking for a general tutorial on how to run CGI scripts. When you've got that down, the rest is easy.

141 Name: Problem-man : 2006-06-08 16:25 ID:NQ4hj531 [Del]

Ok, I'm having a problem in my wakaba. I have uploaded it to my host but whenever I post anything I have to hit F5 to refresh to see my post. I tried uploading and renaming example.htaccess to .htaccess but it still doesnt works, any ideas?

142 Name: Problem-man : 2006-06-08 16:32 ID:NQ4hj531 [Del]

Forgot to say, Im using Firefox

143 Name: Problem-man : 2006-06-08 18:37 ID:NQ4hj531 [Del]

Im sure it has to be something about Firefox keeping info on its cache, because when I delete all the info thats there I see all the messages I posted without problems...

144 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-06-08 19:07 ID:Heaven [Del]

If your host supports mod_headers, add the following to your .htaccess:

<Files *.html>
Header set Expires "Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT"
Header set Pragma "no-cache"
Header set Cache-Control "max-age=0; must-revalidate; no-cache"
Header unset Vary

If this causes 500s, then your host doesn't have it installed. If that's the case, hopefully your host will be willing to install mod_headers, otherwise there isn't much you can do.

145 Post deleted by user.

146 Name: Problem-man : 2006-06-08 20:45 ID:NQ4hj531 [Del]

Well, it caused an 500 Internal Server Error... I guess i'll have to change my host or ask them to install that mod...
Anyways, thanks for your help!!

147 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-09 03:03 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>144 is already in example.htaccess, but wrapped in <IfModule> so it won't 500 when the module isn't installed. And yes, what you need to do is ask the host to enable mod_headers.

148 Name: Anonymous : 2006-06-09 14:32 ID:ysYpxcj9 [Del]

Why can't you just use "Cache-Control: must-revalidate"? The rest are just repetition of that and won't even use If-Modified-Since.

149 Name: Anonymous : 2006-06-09 17:47 ID:Heaven [Del]

likely just backups to make sure it works on all browsers?

150 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2006-06-09 19:51 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>149 is close to the truth. It's there to ensure it works on all browsers and all proxies.

RFC2616 is nice, but we're dealing with numerous different products here.

151 Name: silvernode : 2006-06-11 13:47 ID:FPr/yYQV [Del]

any good sources related on learning cgi scripts?

152 Name: Drake!cFQS1XUKBs : 2006-06-11 15:59 ID:GTh4370R [Del]

I'm having an odd problem with Kareha 3.1.0's captcha system: I keep getting the same captcha image repeated, but after the first time, entering it returns "wrong verification code entered". Reloading the image, clearing the browser cache, or disabling caching does not solve this--but deleting the captcha cookie does. Any ideas?

153 Post deleted by user.

154 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-12 05:13 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


That is very strange. I really don't have any idea what's going on. After deleting the cookie, does it work once, or several times?

155 Name: mad93 : 2006-06-12 10:28 ID:qnQU6FgR [Del]

I had wakaba running on one server and worked perfect, but now i'm migrating to another server and when execute the in the server log I get errors like:

ModPerl::Registry: Bareword "SQL_TABLE" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at

And the output of the code, the page, says that can't connect to the sql database (I'm using sqlite).

Any clues of what can be happening? Thanks.

156 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-12 13:08 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


You're using mod_perl, which isn't supported yet.

157 Name: mad93 : 2006-06-12 14:29 ID:qnQU6FgR [Del]

So what i must use in the server for handle this perl scripts?

I can change the configuration of the server.

158 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-13 05:34 ID:l2svyCMe [Del]


Just the usual Options +ExecCGI and AddHandler cgi-script pl. Somebody correct me if I misremembered those lines as usual.

159 Name: mad93 : 2006-06-13 15:24 ID:qnQU6FgR [Del]

Thanks :)

Now the board, the execution of, works fine, but when i try to upload a new picture i get this error :S

Constant subroutine main::S_HOME redefined at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.3/ line 108, <FILE> line 5.,

I need to change something more?

160 Name: mad93 : 2006-06-13 15:26 ID:qnQU6FgR [Del]

Sorry for double posting but i can't edit the anterior message, and the end of this types of error also say: Server closed socket during multipart read (client aborted?)

161 Name: !cFQS1XUKBs : 2006-06-13 16:21 ID:GTh4370R [Del]

Just once.

I don't get it either. As I understand how the captcha script works, it sounds like the cookie for a new image is being set, but the old image is still being cached and displayed. But that doesn't explain why clearing the cache does nothing, nor why clearing the cookie allows a new image to load.

Maybe my ISP or webhost is doing some sort of stealth caching. I'll look into that.

162 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-13 16:22 ID:Heaven [Del]

You have a wonky Apache setup, it sounds like, but I'm not enough of an Apache hacker to say what's wrong.

163 Name: mad93 : 2006-06-13 17:27 ID:qnQU6FgR [Del]

I've searching and seems to be that the GCI module has a bug since the version 3.15, someone can say me what verion of the module you're using.

The bug report is this

164 Name: Bitinn : 2006-06-13 17:35 ID:zzaGZx8w [Del]

subdomain related problem,
using latest wakaba, the initial setup (after basic config) isn't working for css/javascript.
instead of linking to /css/futaba.css, it is pointing at /sub/css/futaba.css, where sub is my folder for the subdomain under root.

what should I put in .htaccess / to make this works ?

165 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-14 04:24 ID:Heaven [Del]


You should rebuild caches.

166 Name: Bitinn : 2006-06-14 09:51 ID:zzaGZx8w [Del]

Thx, now that the configs are all done, I start to translate the file into chinese.

Translation is fine, took me only 20mins or so, but after setuping the script, encoding goes crazy... well, it is still UTF-8, but characters are all wrong(posts content still display correctly so it shouldn't have anything to do with SQL)... is it because of the encoding I used for is wrong ?

What did you do to make work perfectly ?? I would like to make a contribution on translation...

(btw, rebuild caches doesn't help now...)

167 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-14 13:43 ID:Heaven [Del]


Note the use encoding "shift-jis"; at the top of You should change that to whatever encoding you used for that file, which may be different from what you use on the actual board!

168 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-14 13:44 ID:Heaven [Del]

Oh, and also note the no encoding; at the end.

169 Name: BitInn : 2006-06-14 14:46 ID:zzaGZx8w [Del]

thx! problem resolved.

Also I guess I have found a bug in the latest wakaba:

after setting encoding to utf-8 for my, I can't match my admin password anymore ! I type EXACT the same word but it didn't work. turns out it's the encoding being naughty. I shift it down to #Page look(ie. left out #System config) & password get back to normal.

170 Name: BitInn : 2006-06-14 15:24 ID:zzaGZx8w [Del]

in addition,
error message doesn't use being whatever the translation name), instead they look for & thus only return english error messages even when we include in

I have to manually replace as well in order to show my translation for error messages.

171 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-06-15 05:01 ID:l2svyCMe [Del]


Did you remember a no encoding; at the end of your strings file? Or if you are using unicode characters in the password, you should probably add a use encoding statement to too.


That really shouldn't be possible. Hmm. I'll have to look into it.

172 Name: BitInn : 2006-06-15 06:09 ID:zzaGZx8w [Del]

I can see my reply 169 could be a bit confusing...

To sum it up:

1. is encoded in utf-8
2. my trial is to use encoding utf-8 & no encoding for the whole file
3. password doesn't match, which is in pure english letters by the way.
4. then I shift use encoding & no encoding to wrap the #Page look section only, where I used unicode characters.
5. password back on track, and unicode characters still resolved fine.

got no idea why...

One more question, I attempted to create a chinese version of rules.html, but no encoding(utf-8 / GB2312) appear to work properly with wakaba. How did wakaba load header, footer & rules ?

(host edited out).

I have no access to /kareha/ as it says it's "blocked by rule." unsure as to how to change this :x.

That's very strange. I have no idea what would cause that. For rules.html, hmm... That might actually be slightly broken. I'd have to investigate that too. If you have a program to convert a file to use HTML entities instead, that should work, though.


Your Perl version is ancient. Wakaba used to work on 5.005, but recent developments have apparently broken it (I don't have anywhere to test it on old versions any longer).

Either upgrade your Perl, comment out the function that uses Socket::INET (it's not important), or wait until I fix it. That might take a while, though, as I'm pretty busy with several things.

looks like your perl installation is broken.

I have a bit of a baffling problem: I've used Wakaba successfully with oekaki, but now I need to move it to a different directory. Upon doing this, I receive "File does not exist" errors in the error log, and the paint applet refuses to load. Is there a path somewhere in the configuration files I'm forgetting to set? Nothing of relevance seems to be in the oekaki config files.

Moving the folder back to where it was fixes the problem. The simplest "move" - renaming the directory and rebuilding caches doesn't work either. Thanks for reading.

180 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-03 14:14 ID:Heaven [Del]

You probably just need to rebuild caches. The Manage link will point to the wrong place too, so fix it manually.

181 Name: Anonymous : 2006-07-03 18:12 ID:Heaven [Del]

I'm sorry I wasn't clear - rebuilding caches fixes everything but the applet loading. The error log looks for the jar file in the right place, but reports as not being able to find it.

Most mysterious. Link?

hi, i am running wakaba from the last version under lighttpd 1.4.4 perl 5.8.8.

when i'm trying to post a new thread via the wakaba.html form, it forwards me back to the wakaba.html page, without including the new thread.

tried to delete the wakaba.html to see if the will create a new one, no success.

thx :]

184 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-04 04:55 ID:l2svyCMe [Del]


You need to get lighttpd to tell the browser not to cache the pages. Also, a reload should show the new thread.

185 Name: Anonymous : 2006-07-04 07:39 ID:w7xtasGx [Del]


ok, i have switched to apache 2.2, and still the post i tried to submit refuses to appear in the wakaba.html page. maybe i should change the wakaba.html permissions to 777 so the webserver could write the new topic into that page?

186 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-04 14:18 ID:Heaven [Del]


Did you try just reloading the page? If the script can't write to the file, it will complain.

187 Name: Anonymous : 2006-07-04 16:50 ID:w7xtasGx [Del]

i tried, no change. it seems like the HTML page sends the POST details to / (or /wakaba.html) instead of /
another thing I've paid attention to (a bug?), is the need to write your admin password in the url bar (the form sends a rhandom password)... not so secure imo :S

you can see the problem at ...

thanks again :]

188 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-05 03:17 ID:Heaven [Del]


The page isn't built right - did you run from the command line? That will break the page. Also, going to gets you an SQL connection failure so it wouldn't work anyway. First, fix your SQL settings, then go to and log in and rebuild caches. Also, the admin password is encrypted in the URL bar. This is normal.

189 Name: Anonymous : 2006-07-05 05:55 ID:w7xtasGx [Del]

okay, i changed the permissions so the webserver can create the wakaba.html and i have fixed the sql settings... everything works now, thanks alot! ^_^

I tried to rebuild cash but I got the message like this.
Untile today it did not happen to us.

Out of memory during "large" request for 1052672 bytes, total sbrk() is 28467200 bytes at wakautils.cgi line 973.

I am using kareha 3.1.0 at
Is this something to do with setting ?or do I have to try other
method to cope with ?

191 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-07 06:56 ID:l2svyCMe [Del]

Wow, that's a weird error message. The line it occurs on does nothing that I can image would cause that kind of error.

Lacking any other clues, I'm assuming something is very broken on your server.

192 Name: Anonymous : 2006-07-07 07:11 ID:jz8cApt0 [Del]

Thank you very much !WAHa.06x36

well,,, I see file like _Xafeafavae.dat in the same directory of kareha.cgi which I've never seen before....

I bet the html files in res directory is broken but dun know how to tel which is bad res and which is not...

193 Name: Anonymous : 2006-07-07 07:15 ID:jz8cApt0 [Del]

It seems the strange name .dat file comes up when I click the Rebuild cash. sorry multiple reply

194 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-07 09:23 ID:Heaven [Del]


When Kareha saves files, it writes them to a file with a random name ending in ".dat", and then renames it to the real name, to avoid destroying files if it runs out of space while writing. However, on your system, the rename function crashes with that error. There is nothing in Kareha that could make that happen. It's not your config or the res files. Something much more serious is wrong with the server.

195 Name: Anonymous : 2006-07-07 14:11 ID:jz8cApt0 [Del]

ok thanks for the advise.
So far, I dont have problem beside that and as the server is not my own I guess there is not much I can do for it.

Well I appriciate your kind advise, your adivse released my from mining the res files. (^^;

Hello, I seem to be having a problem getting the title image to display on my imageboard, i am pointing to the right file on my server but no title image appears only the actualy title.

197 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-11 12:06 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


Did you set both the title image URL and the title mode? It's been ages since I used that, I can't remember what exactly it should be, but the comments should say something.

I'm having difficulty running Wakaba, specifically getting to follow through properly. specific error is:

Hmm. Your could try copying from Kareha, and see if that works better.
