All of a sudden, for no reason (favorite kind of problem) Scanner stopped working. I can access the configuration at /admin/config/search/settings but trying load the scanner at admin/content/scanner fatal errors:

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: 
Failed opening required '/public_html/sites/all/modules/scanner/node.admin.inc'
(include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in 
/home/moondev/public_html/includes/menu.inc on line 514

Notice the path is wrong where it's trying to load node.admin.inc

Scanner used to work as expected so I suppose either an update changed something or a conflict with another module (or it's settings) is happening.

Anybody experience something similar before, where a core include is trying to be loaded from the wrong path?

  • Also just noticed drupal.org/project/scanner hasn't been worked on in quite a while... – Merrick Jun 4 '12 at 22:51
  • It's almost definitely something to do with the hook_menu() implementation in the scanner module...I know it's the 'go to' answer, but have you tried clearing the cache and running cron? – Clive Jun 4 '12 at 22:56
  • Yes, but I like the simplicity, so I'll do it again to double check ;) It's weird how it was working previously too. – Merrick Jun 4 '12 at 23:06

    I've taken over maintainership of Scanner. This should not effect the latest version. – fizk Oct 17 '15 at 11:18

Turns out to be a conflict with Administration Views (7.x-1.0-alpha1).

Disable admin views & functionality is restored. Not sure where the blame is yet because I haven't pinpointed the conflict. But it does make sense at face value because admin views replaces the /admin/content and scanner is located at admin/content/scanner
