Admin page disappears if a bad module is uploaded

    Details

    • Complexity:
      Low

      Description

      The admin page has a lot of extension points that modules extend. If one of those modules fails to run properly, then the administration page only loads half way.

      A common error is this:

      The following error happened somewhere on this page:
      javax.servlet.jsp.el.ELException: An error occurred while getting property "links" from 
      an instance of class org.openmrs.module.reporting.web.extension.ManageAdminListExt 
      

      This is usually caused by classloading issues under the hood of the module. You can see the specific error by doing a "View Source" on the page or looking in the tomcat error logs.

      Another common fix for this is to delete the content's of tomcat's "work" directory in order to clear tomcat's cache. See the tomcat home dir on the machine for this folder. Then restart tomcat.
