An error on board settings page in admin panel/users can't register

Post by SkekKel »

Hm... I just made my first phpbb3 forum...
I don't know why I can't access the "board setting" section on my board.
It looks like that (attachement)...

You must have had access to the ACP to install the we_universal style.

Which are?

Did you make any other changes to the board files or database?

Yes, I have access to administation panel but I don't have access to the page where forum setting are (name of the forum and stuff).

I have installed Reputation Points.

No, I haven't done anything to the database, I just installed the forum and after installing the extention and style, I went to change board name and got that error.

Disable the extension and see if that fixes it.

I'm getting this same error after a fresh install with no extensions added.

“Pacific/Apia” is not a valid time zone, anywhere. :)

Yes it is. It is the time zone used in Samoa.

It doesn't work without the extension as well.

Damn, you're right Oyabun1. I thought, definitively, that was a typo for “Pacific/Asia” :oops: :oops: :oops:

Run this SQL query and post the result

Code: Select all

SELECT config_value FROM phpbb_config WHERE config_name = 'board_startdate'
Change phpbb_ if that is not your table prefix.

See Executing SQL Queries in phpMyAdmin if you are unfamiliar with running queries.

For me it says this:

#1054 - Unknown column 'config_valeus' in 'field list'

Just update on my situation, I now have this problem on an install that didn't have it before - no changes to the core files, so I'm pretty confused!
