Could not connect to the database

Where do we activate the db at Lycos ? I searched every page but couldn't find where the activation is?


thanks ...

Try the page called "PHP4U/MYSQL". Sorry to be callus, but lycos has done everything but make it blinking text on a white page.

Thank you for the thing about putting @ in front. It fixed the header errors. Now, how do I fix the redirection to lycos home when someone logs in or out?

Brilliant!

Many thanks Kev ( & especially to soxie for the fix )- I'd just spotted it & applied soxie's code before I read your rapid response.
What a great community!

I was wondering if members.lycos.co.uk supports uploading files with the Attachment MOD method.

Hi,

i just started a board at lycos but i have a problem.

When i go to the administrator meny it is messed up. 80% is used for the first collom and 20% for the second. It should be the other way.

What can i do ?

I finally figured out what the problem was, and I bet this has something to do with the Lycos errors as well. If there are any blank links before the <?php line, you will get the header errors. I guess that what's happening is the blank line is considered "sent" before the header information. If I had a blank line at the top of any page of php code, it generates errors. As long as the php code starts on the very first line, it appears to work.

Adding the @ in front of the header lines does not, apparently, really fix the problem. It just stops the headers from being sent. I would look at the code after it's uploaded to some of the hosts that have problems, and see if they are adding content at the top of your page. If so, that may be the problem.

I would be interested to see if anyone else can confirm / deny my findings...

This gave me the clue about how to fix my problem, which was gave similar error messages. The problem was i'd edited my lang_main.php using a web interface, and it'd put a few extra lines after the end of the file. Once I trimmed off all the whitespace things started working again.

message_die() was called multiple times. This isn't supposed to happen. Was message_die() used in page_tail.php?

Make sure you don't have any blank spaces/lines before or after the <?php and ?> things in page_tail.php
