Hi,

When I go the Plugins Installation then Install More Portlets, the list is empty. A search returns nothing and a refresh just returns OK (for both http://plugins.liferay.com/community and http://plugins.liferay.com/official). I get a 403 Forbidden error when visiting the plugin sites in a web browser.

Regards,
Sam

Are you behind proxy or firewall? If yes, then you have to add system-ext.properties in your classpath(ROOT/web-inf/classes)


 1    #
 2    # Set the location of the HTTP proxy that the portal will use to fetch
 3    # external content.
 4    #
 5    # Set http.nonProxyHosts for hosts that will not be proxied. This is useful
 6    # for proxied environments where you need direct access to internal servers.
 7    # This should follow the same semantics as the java.net package.
 8    #
 9    #http.proxyHost=192.168.0.200
10    #http.proxyPort=4480
11    #http.nonProxyHosts=192.168.0.250

On a nationwide (UK) network that is shared by many users (maybe even in the 100's of thousands), so perhaps the Liferay server may be blocking requests?

I am not sure about that. I normally face the problem when to connect to the internet, I need to specify proxy settings in browser. If I am directly able to connect to internet without any proxy settings in browser, then I dont have to set the aforementioned properties

Connecting to the internet does not require proxy access (other than the 'transparent' kind, no configuration on client needed), only for accessing some sites. The forbidden error is direct from the liferay.com server, because we have a custom error message for sites that are blocked.

The urls that you are trying to hit on the browser, those are repositoryURLs which is used by liferay's software catalog to create complete url of the plugin repository xml. By just hitting them in the browser you will get the 403 error and it is expected. Try hitting http://plugins.liferay.com/official/liferay-plugin-repository.xml

You should be able to see the xml.

I request you to just try once by adding the proxy server hosts ip and port as I have mentioned and see if its working.

Sandeep

I can download that file via Chrome / IE. The plugins are all for 6.0 though, none point to the 6.1 version.

I am gutting them via SourceForge rather than from within Liferay.

I'm pretty sure this is because the plugins in the repository haven't been updated to include 6.1 in their metadata, so that Liferay doesn't think they are compatible and does not show them. I believe every time we do a release someone has to go back in and update the plugins (or recompile/re-test as needed). I'll find out.

It is a surprise that the official plugins aren't listed though, since they are compatible, though I just downloaded the war files from SourceForge and add them that way to the site.

Hello, I have the same issue with Liferay 6.0.6. This worked for me some weeks ago and now it doesn't. On http://plugins.liferay.com/official/liferay-plugin-repository.xml what I get is this:

<plugin-repository><settings/></plugin-repository>

Any help?
