Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

I think that signature of yours disarms the aggressive and desperate tendencies of people when they're in a bind ;) It helps!

Re: Missing attachments after recovering damaged database

Solved. I had to move the "photos" folder into the main folder for my forum. Then it found everything. All attachments uploaded before then--and after the recovering of data--needed to be re-uploaded. :)

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely (SOLVED)

I think we can mark this thread as "SOLVED"

You folks are the best. You're patient and kind. You are also very charitable with your time. If I can ever be of help with photo retouching and color correction problems don't hesitate to ask. No bill for my time. :D :D :D :D :D

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

Weird. Unless it's contained inside a Category/Forum with the wrong permissions. I think I'll delete it and recreate it. ok - that will make Steve happy too :D Spoke too soon. You were right! Australia was a "CATEGORY" and not a "FORUM" :oops: Duh. Australia is saved! http://01753b9.netsolhost.com/...

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

No - Start from View Forum Based Permissions , under Permission Masks at the bottom. You've started from Forum Permissions. Confusing, because 2 things are named almost the same... (and I originally missed the word View out of my instructions...) Ah, I see. OK. This is what I found. I tested his pe...

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

use Permission masks for a username to trace the permissions: ACP - Permissions - Forum based permissions - Select a Forum - Submit Type a username in Find a member View Permissions Then click the circle arrow icons next to a permission to trace the permission and how it is set. Just use any Regist...

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

Yes thank you. It helps. It led to me doing this.. I've been working in ACP=Users and Groups=Groups' forum permissions I've found a number of countries with "No Role Assigned" which I changed to "Standard Access." But that Australia has me puzzled. It's set to "Standard Access" for Registered users....

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

Good question. I don't understand it very well. I'll try it. By the way, I've copied permissions from South America to Australia. Australia still doesn't show up for Registered Users. :? Nor does is show up for me (admin)! I only see it when I go to ACP=Manage Forums. I think I messed something up h...

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely (speed & permissions)

Indeed! No wonder Next Generation changed red shirts for command folks. 8-) Anyway, you're right about the horribly slow speed (it's more so today because almost everyone in the US is on holiday). It's been almost 5 minutes waiting to test your permissions on my forum. I called to complain and they ...

JIm, that did it! I simply didn't know where to look.

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

Ah-hah! Sam had me keep the broken files from the first meltdown. Inside that "phpbb3-broke" folder is a "photos" folder with dozens of files. Would it be safe to just move that to the current phpbb3 folder on my FTP?

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

No apologies necessary. I apologize for bothering everyone :D

OK, when checking ACP for allow attachments, I found this:

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely (attachment fix?)

This is good. I appreciate all of your help. I'll just FTP to the cache folder and empty whenever I see that problem. But it doesn't answer that 500 error. Still a mystery? Now I'm back to where I was after it was restored: No viewable attachments. If I'm correct, I believe my attachments were spoil...

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

/me slams his head on the desk and sobs... No relevant errors. And just to make me mad, we're now getting a 200 response on a "white" page. The server's pretending everything is hunky-dory. /me slams his head on the desk and sobs some more... I honestly don't know what to tell you. The only clue we...

Re: Blank forum-disappeared completely

Maybe if you create a phpinfo.php file with the following code and upload it to your forum directory: <? phpinfo(); ?> it might show us something useful. Other than that you may need to ask NetSol to turn on or increase the level of PHP error logging temporarily, because it doesn't seem to be loggi...
