Re: Locked Topics

Although acceptable in some languages and compulsory in others, comma splices are usually considered style errors in English. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma_splice Who knew. If you care enough feel free to file a bug report as stated. I come from a language in which this construct is "acceptabl...

Re: Update PHP on Mac OS X

You need to update your apache module also.

Please note that server configuration/maintenance questions are generally outside of the scope of these forums.

Re: Is it possible to change the uid of anonymous user?

0 is a bad choice for a user id. Pick a positive number.

You also will need to change the value of ANONYMOUS constant to your chosen anonymous id.

Re: 406 error with attachments over 10MB

Check your web server error logs for why it sent a 406.

phpbb does not use that status code. It's something that the web server does on its own initiative. You should ask your host why this is happening.

Re: E-mail Error - Error Log

You need to ask your host for the correct email settings to use. Try configuring phpbb to send via smtp.

Re: 5,000 Phpbb Sessions

Certainly that looks to be within the correct order of magnitude. 5,000 rows in a table should really not be a cause for concern. They probably are all kept in memory. To troubleshoot slow mysql start by running 'show full processlist' in phpmyadmin or via the console and post the output here. Also,...

Re: Forum board using too much memory

35 mb is reasonable memory usage for a modern php script. If your host imposes that as a memory limit you should strongly consider changing hosts. A more reasonable memory limit would be 100-200 mb.

Re: Consistent phpBB Server Resource Spikes

They really should not be blaming any particular piece of software for resource consumption if their monitoring system is unable to accurately attribute said resource consumption to said software.

Re: The GNU and YOU...?

I doubt asking an attorney would be of much help in cases like that. I believe there are many opinions out there and you're going to get different ones depending on who you ask in a grey area such as this. You don't ask an attorney. You ask your attorney, the one that is going to represent you (mor...

Re: The GNU and YOU...?

What about using phpBB APIs, like submit_post (for example, in an HTML form that creates posts)? This is when I would recommend consulting an attorney. Or what if I create a custom page (as in the Knowledge Base article) to look like phpBB and want to distribute that page? Steve Copyright does not ...

Re: Queue stopped working after 3.0.10 upgrade

There are a few different things going on here. First, lock file is now never deleted. Second, smtp/php mail should be entirely orthogonal to queue/immediate sending. Have you tried smtp with package size of 0? Now to your main issue, which is that queue does not work. Queue requires a functioning c...
