Please describe your problem. One can't access either forums or posts. One still can see the index page or send PMs. This doesn't happen for users who aren't logged in when they access forums that are free for everyone to view.

I think it may have something to do with my service provider. I received an email from them, back in January, saying that they turn off the old_passwords option in MySQL configuration, and that all passwords will be reconfigured into a new format. They said it's because they're preparing to implement new 5.3 PHP version that doesn't serve 16 bites passwords.

They also said that if problems occur I should either use the old_password() function or recode the data.

However, there were no problems either in January or the following months. The problem occurred yesterday, and I haven't yet heard from them. If I should change something in the scripts could someone tell me which ones should I edit and how?

If you want to view the forum you can log in with the name: szewczyk password: szewczyk

Thanks in advance!
