Blosxom Calendar Plugin Bug

I use Blosxom for my blog and the Blosxom Calendar Plugin to add a calendar to the blog. I installed version 0.6i of the plugin on August 30, 2004. Today, I noticed that if I click on the path link at the bottom of an entry where the path has a directory as part of the path with a name beginning with a number, clicking on that link generates the internal server error shown below.

Server error!

    The server encountered an internal error and was 
    unable to complete your request.

    Error message:
    Premature end of script headers: blosxom

If you think this is a server error, please contact
the webmaster

Error 500

When I looked in the site's error log, I found the following.

[Mon Jul 25 19:18:21 2005] [error] [client] Cannot handle date (0, 0, 0, 1, 11, 2800) at /support/blog/plugins/calendar line 214, referer:

When I checked line 214 in the calendar plugin I saw the following.

$monthstart = timelocal(0,0,0,1,$month-1,$year-1900);

The problem appears to be triggered whenever there is a directory with the directory name starting with a number in part of the path. I had a directory with /pc/hardware/dell/4700 as part of the path. I renamed the 4700 directory to d4700 and the problem went away. I changed it to 4700d and the problem reoccurred. I changed it to 3800 and the problem remained. Since I didn't have time to carefully examine the code in the calendar plugin, I finally just changed the directory to dimension_4700 and left it at that.

I thought there might be a later version of the plug-in at the developer's website, but the 0.6i version is the one still posted there.

ht://Dig Setup

I installed ht://Dig because I thought I had placed certain information on my website, which I waned to refer to again, but couldn't locate it. I have a search tool for the blog, but that will only search the blog's content. Since I couldn't find the information with that tool, I thought I might have placed the information in a file or files that weren't part of the blog's entries. So I installed htdig and used it to search the entire site. I still couldn't find the information, though I can recall creating a webpage with the information.

Oh well, I'll just have to keep looking or figure out how to do what I need to do again. One of the reasons I created the blog was to serve as a reference when my memory fails me on how I resolved a problem in the past. But, if I didn't post the information here, it's going to take me much longer to locate it or figure out again the steps I took previously.

So I won't have that problem with installing htdig again, I've posted my notes in the blog. Hopefully, it might help someone else as well in resolving problems or answering questions about setting it up so it can be used with multiple websites on the same server.
