Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

It can't hurt to try PHP 7.1 or 7.2 and see if the problem goes away, which it might if PHP 7.0 is not configured properly by your web host.

Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

I would file a support ticket with your web host showing the errors. They should validate that this path:

include_path='.:/opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/share/pear'

is valid.

Upgrading to the latest is always a good tactic.

Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

Clearly this path is bad: /home4/bathouse/public_html/forum/vendor/composer/../patchwork/utf8/src/Patchwork/Utf8/Bootup.php The correct path is: /home4/bathouse/public_html/forum/vendor/patchwork/utf8/src/Patchwork/Utf8/Bootup.php The question is why is this happening. The answer may lie here: inclu...

Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

Your problem is somewhere else. Like Wordpress, when you have issues like this it's best to keep things simple: disable extensions, make sure you have the current version of the file installed (upload a reference version) and then slowly enable features. That might give a clue to where the problem l...

Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

I often find that manually deleting the contents of /cache folder, then refreshing a phpBB page can solve issues. Sometimes there are issues with permissions. The cache folder should have 777 permissions, but they don't always seem to take properly. The production folder may not have it and sometime...

Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

I only know about this stuff because I was recently troubleshooting my digests extension, so I needed to use phpBB's add log function. Strings that need to show up in the log have to be wrapped inside of an array, otherwise you get the error you describe. Example, this would work: $this->phpbb_log->...

The reCaptcha must be version 2 checkbox. Don't use invisible or any other option.

Re: PHPBB Spam ?

There is a new Akismet spam extension you can try. Akismet is not necessarily free, depending on your usage. In a similar vein, there is also the Cleantalk service and the Cleantalk extension. The service is $8/year for one website. The version of the extension here is old, so I recommend getting it...

Re: Forum phpbb3 3.2.4 Been down days restored backups same issue

This is probably a poorly written extension. However, disabling the extension doesn't necessarily solve the problem. The problem is the log_data column in the phpbb_logs table is either blank or contains a string in JSON meant to be interpreted as an array. So you will see these if you look in phpBB...

Re: Upgrade 3.0.8 to 3.2.5 without losing content

That said, my experience is that the more posts you have the more likely you will get timeouts and issues using the web interface. Keep the CLI method in your back pocket and if you have 100,000 or more posts I would use CLI first. In spite of attempts to make it bulletproof, I also often find that ...

Re: Not receiving emails and strange lines of code

I wrote a blog post about emailing problems with phpBB. Sometimes it's your host blocking outgoing email because it looks spammish and the don't want to get a reputation. I've had numerous clients using GoDaddy with this problem and it took a lot of back and forth with their support and certifying y...

That certainly was the case in the past. I'd just as soon not include it if that's an option.

Re: Submission for review when archive is too big

Well, this issue is still open.

The archive is about 2.1MB in size and includes the SimplePie library, which is ma...
