Hello,

My forum Anarcho-Punk.net have been working perfectly for a long long time. I haven't touched anything since months, but around 2 weeks ago my webhosting company decided to upgrade PHP to PHP 5.3

Since they upgraded to PHP 5.3, my forum members are getting a lot of problems. They get disconnected almost every time they click a link... After investigating i discovered that they get disconnected only when they access an URL that doesn't include the Session ID in the URL

Example:
http://www.anarcho-punk.net/viewforum.p ... 380b22d73e will work
http://www.anarcho-punk.net/viewforum.php?f=6 will get you disconnected

So i tryed to add the Session ID to ALL links on the forum but i can't fix everything. Examples:

- If a member login then get back to the forum typing www.anarcho-punk.net URL in their browser it won't include Session ID so they will get disconnected

- If a member post an internal link inside a forum post, session ID isnt included so they will get kicked out

- member's bookmarks doesnt include Session ID



So i really don't know how to fix this problem. And i don't understand why the problem didnt show up until my webhost upgraded to PHP 5.3

I desesperatly need help! My forum activity is going down since the bug happenned, many active members are threatening to leave the forum :( This is one of my last forum using PHPBB, all others are on vbulletin and i want to keep this one on phpbb :( Please help me !


I contacted my webhost, they told me to check if phpbb got specific instructions related to "memcache" but im really confused.....


UPDATE: Yesterday the glitches disseapeared during a couple of hours. I could click links without SID and i wouldnt get disconnected. But today the problem is back... It is really weird..

You'll have to provide proof that this is legal. An introduction post is not proof. Until then, this is getting locked. Sorry.
