Solved Spigot 1.8.3 Groupmanager Error

Discussion in 'Bugs & Feature Requests' started by FrogBarZ, May 29, 2015.

  1. I updated my server from 1.7.9_r.3 to 1.8.3_r.2,
    and everything works compatible and okay except for my groupmanager files
    The group manager doesn't reads my configs for all the worlds I set with the permissions

    Here's the error : http://pastebin.com/ibL4fME2
    Here's my faction world's groups : http://pastebin.com/2hwLc1aj
    (Configured with notepad++ not with in-game group manager commands)
  2. Easy to fix. At the top of the error log it says:

    Code (Text):
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The following file couldn't pass on Parser.
    This points the the file that is causing your problem. At the bottom of the first stack trace it says:

    Code (Text):
    Caused by: while scanning for the next token
    found character      '\t(TAB)' that cannot start any token. (Do not use \t(TAB) for indentation)
    in 'reader', line 100, column 17:
              suffix: ''    
    Remove that tab on line 100 column 17, you can use notepads++ numbers down the side to see. Then once you have done that copy the whole file and paste it here, http://yaml-online-parser.appspot.com that will then check to see if there's anymore problems. If the output is like the input the it's fine to use

  3. What do you mean by "Remove that tab on line 100 column 17, you can use notepads++ numbers down the side to see."?, I can see the numbers on the left which means the row I believe but I can't see the one for the column

    btw, what do you mean by tab?
  4. Ok the numbers down the side is the line number, so look for line 100 it should contain a suffix. You don't really need to worry about the columns it just shows where the error actually is. So if you know the line number you can check to see where the error is.

    A tab is about 4 or 5 spaces. Pretty much all config files are written in a markup language called YAML. This language doesn't like tabs do you have to use spaces, if you don't you get errors.

    Just remove the spaces at the end of line 100 at put it through the link I gave above

  5. Sorry to bother you but I can't understand english properly or that hard cuz I'm Asian (PH), do you mind if you do what you mean and send the files to me?

  6. What does it means when there is no ERROR or redcolored text appears?
