Actions Taken:

Resynchronize statistics
Resynchronize post counts
Resynchronize dotted topics
Purge the cache

Tried resynchronizing the forums with the intent to do them all. I started with the General Discussion forum. The process appeared to get hung up. I let it run for an hour. It kept displaying a scrolling progress bar with the message that it was "Currently resyncing topic range 765/9913."

The resync finally completed.

A test post to the forum failed with a similar error message.

No forums can be posted to.

I tried a different login ID with standard user privileges. The results were the same.

The last post successfully made to the Forums was at 1:07 am on 2.24.2024.

You may want to try using the unofficial STK (not the official one for 3.0) and let it analyse the board.

For an STK adapted for 3.3 see https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/offi ... pic/243994 .
However, it's not an official STK so it's a Use at your own risk.
But ... I've used it many times (as have others) and it works as expected/intended.

Just make sure you have a full backup (rule nr 1 anytime) in case something goes wrong

The primary key is the the topic ID and it should auto increment but you don't have 32K topics.

Using phpMyadmin open *phpbb_topics table and then click the structure tab. Sort the topic ID ascending so the highest is listed. What's the last topic ID number?

*phpbb_ is default prefix, yours may be different.

Thanks for the reply.

The ACP indicates that there are 28765 topics.

A recent post had a topic ID of 32561.

https://www.thisisms.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=32561&p=263462#p263462

Several posts have been incorrectly assigned the date Dec 31, 1969.

Your post appears to imply that there's a built in limit of topic IDs equal to 32k. Is that correct?

There is no limitation on the topic ID's. my mistake it dodn't appear you had that many topics.

Make a backup of your forum and then open the database. Put check next to phpbb_topics and scroll to the bottom of page. Next to with selected choose repair table.

That would be indication of something else wrong. Check your server error logs for errors and you can also see if they have wrong date.

I've discovered that I can make posts to existing topics. I, along with all other members, just can't create new topics.

Go into phpmyadmin.
click on your phpbb_topics table.
Click the top "Operations" tab.
Scroll down to the "Table Options" section.
At the bottom of that section in the AUTO_INCREMENT box change the number 32564 to the number of your highest numbered topic +1
Click the Go button under that section.

Thank for the replies. The post topic table had an incorrect counter. Rebuilding the tables fixed the problem and the board is functional once again.
