Re: Hardware/OS Migration

Moving from Gentoo to Ubuntu isn't really changing operating systems, just packaging systems. Both are Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Just make sure that you migrate your configuration files for Apache, MySQL, and PHP for the site to the "new" server, and things should continue to act the same. Just...

Re: Registering via sql

in includes/functions.php, the function phpbb_clean_username() truncates the username to 25 characters, so you'll want to expand that, too.

Re: toolkit.php SQL Error when deleting spam

If you move to 5.x on PHP, you'll really want to move to phpBB3, so it can take advantage of it. phpBB2 is not supported on PHP5, although it works in most cases... But it definitely won't work on PHP6!

Re: Copyright Deleted

And, if you have a problem with the forum in question, there are other avenues to pursue than trying to ask the authors of the software they use to "turn it off". One of the first is to not go there.

Re: Cannot write vietnamese in topic title :((

I used phpbb 2.0.16, I can use vietnamese every where in the forum like message body, Forum index, introduction of each room etc.. First piece of advice - you MUST update your software. Until you do, do NOT post a link to your forum, or it will get destroyed. I highly suggest you disable it until y...

Re: Registering via sql

The maxlen field should match the length assigned to the user_email field, allowing for any special character encodings. That means 255 characters should be allowed.

Re: Upgrade from phpBB 2.0.17 -> ??? and debug

What Ric is getting at is that the database the forum uses and the directory that the files are in have nothing to do with each other - you can move the files around, and still "talk" to the same database. That is what the config.php file tells the programs... where the database is on the MySQL serv...

Re: If your browser does not support meta redirection...

You are reasonably safe doing that nowadays; browsers that do not support meta redirects are very few. And, if they are using one, they deserve to get lost... ;)

Re: If your browser does not support meta redirection...

Most likely cause: You are hosted on a Windows server, which sometimes won't perform proper redirections. The message is there to warn users when this might happen, so they can take action if it happens.

I have never seen this on a non-Windows server, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

Re: Registering via sql

Did you, by chance, remember to increase the size of the user name box on your forms to match the length of email addresses? Your user that was inserted earlier has the address 'loiretemploi@loiretemploi.com', while the query is looking for the address 'loiretemploi@loiretemploi'... missing the .com...

Re: upgrade phpbb2 to phpbb3 conversion problem

"made them writable" to what user(s)? They must be writable by the process running the web server, which is generally NOT the same user you use to upload the files. On a Linux/Unix server, you would set the permissions to "777" for these folders, at least for the duration of the install.

Re: Registering via sql

Create a file named "debugging.log" in your forum's main directory, and set its permissions to "777" (world writable). If you have access rights to do it, it would actually be better to create this file outside the area of the server that is accessible to the public, but not everyone can do that. If...

Re: Upgrade from phpBB 2.0.17 -> ??? and debug

Yes, upgrade. Begin by backing up your database. before any of the following. Start by downloading the v2.0.23 files, and run the "install/update_to_latest.php" script you will find in the archive. That will prepare your database for the upgrade to 3.0. Follow the instructions in the v3.0 install, t...

Re: toolkit.php SQL Error when deleting spam

There are three main causes for problems related to groups: Your PHPBB version is prior to 2.0.18, and your site uses PHP version 5. You will get no error message, but moderator privileges will not "stick". The solution is to update to v2.0.23. Your PHPBB database is originally from a pre-2.0.10 ve...
