Re: Need mod/script/extension created to download all-non local images and save/link from local server

You may not need an extension if you intend this to be a one-time process only. If after cleaning up all instances you change phpBB to disallow remote avatars some sort of one-time script should do the trick, something that would retrieve the image perhaps with curl then store the image with a corre...

Re: Handling gateway timeouts installing an extension

Argh! Sounds like I need to create a separate table. I was wondering if the still_on_time() function could be used in the migration. I use it elsewhere in the extension (although it never seems to get triggered, so I use a user-defined batch size to set a number of items to go to Akismet for a spam ...

Re: Handling gateway timeouts installing an extension

I was thinking I might do that. It's just that a separate table seems overkill to address a problem which at its root is due to a lack of sufficient server resources.

Handling gateway timeouts installing an extension

Testing my own extension, I am getting a gateway timeout after 30 seconds or so when installing an extension I am working on. I know the reason: it's taking "too long" to install. I thought logic to handle this was built into the extension architecture, but maybe there is something I shoul...

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.19

No you don't need to publish a new version, just remove the folder directly in your local repo and push/commit and the folder will be removed on github. I must be doing something wrong. I removed the .idea folder from the command line. I also tried this advice: https://www.david-merrick.com/2017/08...

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.19

Thanks Rich! I thought I had a .gitignore file but I never created one! I gather I don't need a .gitignore file too. I assume I need to publish a new version for the .idea folder to be removed from the GitHub master?

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.19

Better yet, once recovered, if the storage engine is MYISAM change it to INNODB.

Code: Select all

ALTER TABLE phpbb_fbc_stats ENGINE=INNODB;
It's not a bad idea to do this for all similar tables.

Re: CPanel cron not triggering phpBB system cron

I'm also wondering if some sort of security solution is capturing and stopping these requests because they look suspicious. In the past, 1x1 pixel call were considered sneaky. So if some sort of security solution like ModSecurity is enabled, it might be worth seeing if it is blocking these.

Re: CPanel cron not triggering phpBB system cron

It appears that crons can't be turned off, just the method of how they are invoked can be changed. Notifications can be disabled but all sorts of things can hook into the cron process. When an asynchronous phpBB cron is invoked, the URL executed is something like: https://www.mydomain.com/board/app....

Re: CPanel cron not triggering phpBB system cron

Is there a setting which controls if automatic cron processing is enabled? I don't recall every seeing one. If the config value of cron_lock is not 0 it is effectively disabled until the value is 0.

Re: CPanel cron not triggering phpBB system cron

It sounds to me that a feature has been removed from phpBB, i.e. the whole phpBB cron process which sends out notifications based on board traffic, not on a scheduled interval. It sounds like if you want notifications or any cron process to happen you must use a system cron. On the server settings p...

Thanks for the clarification. I wasn't aware a GET request would circumvent the issue.

Re: [3.3][RC] Filter by country - version 1.0.19

The extension can be downloaded here or from the GitHub 1.0.19 release branch. If downloaded from GitHub, make sure to place the files in /ext/phpbbservices/filterbycountry. The two files are different! If you download from GitHub, you will have an unneeded .idea folder. I haven't figured out a way...

Version 1.0.19 is now available for download. Summary of changes: Fixed subtle error that caused some countries on the settings page to be selected when they were not explicitly selected. This was caused by URL encoding the country codes. Removed the duplicate 'AF' and 'AX' country codes from the co...
