Sources link not working on Sweeper


I recently installed Sweeper and everything seemed to be working fine, but when I login I press the "Sources" button and it does nothing - in fact, all the buttons at the top right do nothing.

My install path is:

Did I miss something? Any help would be great, I'm trying to get this up and running for a flood that is a few days out thanks to all the rain.


Same problem for me. Had a lot of trouble getting Login and Add User Buttons to work, but that was down to faulty rewrite in apache2. Those 2 buttons working but now getting a 500 error on all three others.


Hey guys, sorry about this. We aren't very active on this forum so it takes us a while.

Can you guys tell us more about your server environment?

PHP Version

MySQL Version

PEAR and PEAR Extensions present?


I had the same problem but I managed to locate solve it. I checked the log and found that there is error in the log file:

"ERROR: ErrorException [ 8192 ]: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated ~ /usr/share/php/Log.php"

I changed the line 168 in "/usr/share/php/Log.php" and resolved this problem.

"$obj = &new $class($name, $ident, $conf, $level);" change to "$obj = new $class($name, $ident, $conf, $level);"

hope this helps


Thanks for following up on this Masud! In other deployments it's helped to make sure PEAR and PEAR LOG are up to date.
