Registering troubles

When did your problem begin? My problem began when I upgraded from 3.0.4, to 3.0.5, to 3.0.6, and finally to the current version.
Please describe your problem. I've had trouble with new users not being able to register. My forum is at brewersroundtable.com and hasn't had a new user for about two weeks now. When I try to register, first of all the registration page posts the following error in the header:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 3153: Invalid argument supplied for foreach()
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 4363: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions.php:3542)
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 4365: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions.php:3542)
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 4366: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions.php:3542)
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 4367: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions.php:3542)

After that, the user is looped through the registration process and it never ends and so nobody can register. I have recently upgraded from version 3.0.4 to the current version which was when the problems started. If anyone has any ideas on why this might be happening, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Since you have no MODs, follow these instructions exactly:

*NOTE: Before proceeding backup all files and the database.*
  • Upload all new files from a download of the full version, EXCEPT for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
  • Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
  • Let that run and then delete the install folder.
  • You now have a new up to date board containing all your users and posts but without any MODs that you might have had installed.
Please note that you will have to make sure the style you are using is updated to 3.0.7-PL1 (style and board versions MUST match).
Flying is the second best thrill to cheerleaders; being caught is the first.
