From Dolibarr Wiki
This page will list all the common technical problems you can run into.
If you run into a problem, the first step is to activate the Syslog module, then to redo the steps that leads you to a bug, and then check the log file residing at /documents/dolibarr.log
You PHP system to store Dolibarr session is probably no more working.
Go into home - system info - php
What value do you have for parameter "session.save_handler" ?
If it is files, take a look at parameter "session.save_path". Its value is a directory path. Check your web server can read and write into this directory. Check also there is enough free space onto disk.
I can't approve a proposal/invoice/order/any other module
When you approve a document, Dolibarr will rename the folders and all the documents that belonged to the temporary document into the final one.
In most cases, the validation problems arise when Dolibarr tries to rename, and can be caused by:
- A wrong permission for the /documents/ folder, so that Dolibarr can't rename the folder. If that's the case, you should have in your syslog something like:
ERROR 127.0.0.1 user fiche Interfaces::run_triggers action=ORDER_SUPPLIER_VALIDATE Files found: 6, Files launched: 5, Done: 0, Failed: 1 ERROR 127.0.0.1 user fiche CommandeFournisseur::valid DEBUG 127.0.0.1 user fiche ROLLBACK Transaction
- A wrong custom numerotation system: if you use illegal characters for the filesystem (like "/"), this will crash whenever you'll try to validate your document since it won't be able to use this illegal character in the renaming. Try to disable your current custom numerotation system and enable the default one temporarily to see if this fixes the issue.
