Upgraded from 308 to 3011 now email notifications is broken

Post by rusty12345678909 » Thu Sep 13, 2012 3:16 pm

Hi
I Upgraded from 308 to 3011 now email notifications is broken, if I send myself a "mass email" to my user name on the site it works so assume all my email settings are still correct, the subscribed post notifications and notifications for private messages does not work.

Before I do any upgrades I always give the users at least a 24 hr notice before I upgrade by creating a post asking them to note any changes and if they have any problems, after the upgrade they started to notify me that subscribed post by email was not working then a little later the private messages stopped working also.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Like the generator thing, British English is the language not sure how I missed that while using the generator.

No problems during the upgrade were reported during the process I didnt see any problems or anything unusual went smooth.

Anybody?

I am the only one that has had this problem?

No way to diagnose or test to figure out what is the problem?

Went into hostgators "Quick Install" and installed another new fresh version of phpbb 3.0.11 logged in created a few post it never sent a email notification of new post.

Then I send myself a few private messages it never sent me a notification of private messages.

Then I went into the APC and sent out a board wide mass email, this worked I received the mass email I sent in the APC almost instantly.

No mods installed.

Anybody else here using hostgator?

Suggestions? I think since it does not work with a bare new clean install of phpbb 3.0.11 none of my mods or past updates are the reason why it stopped working after I upgraded from 308 to 3011 ?

If the notification worked in this install and not in my upgrade then we could assume it was a mod causing a problem?

Thanks

Exact same problem here - although not everyone has the issue.

This was after upgrading from 3.08 to 3.10.

So what was the fix, I need to get mine fixed seems like nobody has any ideas?

If it cant be fixed the only choice is to convert to another message board?

Never realized how dependent the sites users were on the notification thing until it would not work.

Check the code changes in your functions_posting.php file and make sure they were done correctly. (The code on the left is the 3.0.8 file, the code on the right 3.0.11)

Thanks for the reply, whats the easiest most accurate way to make the comparison other than using your memory and alt tab on the key board?

Thanks

are you seeing any differences between the two files?

they will be highlighted in winmerge.

if you can not figure out what the problem is by seeing any differences then you can copy and paste what you see here .
