Is there any tutorial "how to update" the email on birthday with a new version, because if simply you delete the old "chat" folder replacing with the new one, you may take this error runing install.php :

Query: CREATE TABLE ajax_chat_online ( userID INT(11) NOT NULL, userName VARCHAR(64) NOT NULL, userRole INT(1) NOT NULL, channel INT(11) NOT NULL, dateTime DATETIME NOT NULL, ip VARBINARY(16) NOT NULL ) DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_bin; Error-Report: You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_bin' at line 8 Error-Code: 1064

Any idea why this hapens?

Ok, I've installed this mod, but I'm wondering where the settings are to turn it on in the admin panel?

Or where is it enabled?

I love this mod, it's exactly what I've been looking for! I do have a little problem and I was wondering if anyone might be able to help.

I'm actually using my board mainly for the birthday emails (we're a restaurant that sends out email coupons to customers on their birthday). Probably not the normal way to do it, but this mod fit our needs :)

My issue is that the emails don't send out unless I physically go in and visit my board's index page. I have tried several different ways to run a cron that would simply visit the index so the emails in the queue would be sent out. Unfortunately, while I can get the cron to visit the page, the emails do not send out.

Is there a way to automate the email queue of the board so that the emails send out daily?

i am not very familiar with cron but can tell you that the emails are only sent if a user with the same timezone and dst as the board config visits the index page it will send the mails. maybe that will help you with the cron set up.

Thanks for your help! I checked and the timezone and dst appears to match up with the board.

One thing I've noticed is that the cron.php file that comes with phpBB loads a 1x1 gif image when the page is accessed through the browser. When I've run the cron jobs through Lynx and WGET, the output either comes through as HTML/PHP code or with Lynx it's obviously plain text.

I think that if I can get the output to be real HTML, it would load the image and send the mail. But that's been a big challenge so far.
