index name too long error

by 5hocK » Sat Oct 06, 2012 11:34 am

After running the install, this error appears. Is it maybe because it's not compatable with phpbb3.0.11 or is there a way of altering the maximum number of characters allowed?

Code: Select all

Index name 'XXXphpbb_users_user_reminder_inactive' on table 'XXXphpbb_users' is too long. The maximum is 33 characters.

CALL: phpbb_db_tools->sql_create_index()


Thanks

If you don't use a Firebird database this should work.

Open /includes/db/db_tools.php

Find

Code: Select all

   function sql_create_unique_index($table_name, $index_name, $column)
   {
      $statements = array();

      $table_prefix = substr(CONFIG_TABLE, 0, -6); // strlen(config)
      if (strlen($table_name . $index_name) - strlen($table_prefix) > 24)
      {
         $max_length = strlen($table_prefix) + 24;
         trigger_error("Index name '{$table_name}_$index_name' on table '$table_name' is too long. The maximum is $max_length characters.", E_USER_ERROR);
      }
Replace with

Code: Select all

   function sql_create_unique_index($table_name, $index_name, $column)
   {

      $statements = array();
      if ($this->sql_layer == 'firebird')
      {
      $table_prefix = substr(CONFIG_TABLE, 0, -6); // strlen(config)
      if (strlen($table_name . $index_name) - strlen($table_prefix) > 24)
      {
         $max_length = strlen($table_prefix) + 24;
            trigger_error("Index name '{$table_name}_$index_name' on table '$table_name' is too long. The Firebird maximum is $max_length characters.", E_USER_ERROR);
         }
      }

They're columns, not tables. How did you remove them?

The error seems to indicate that the indexes for those columns already exist. If you used the MySQL DROP statement to remove the columns then the indexes should have been automatically removed. (The MOD's install file seems to use the standard phpBB database functions which remove columns by dropping them, so I'm not sure why the index exists.)

I just tried to install this arcade mod and get the error too. Since I am totally new to modding, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Angel

This is not an Arcade MOD, so your error has nothing to do with this MOD.

Oh okay. So do you know where I would ask this question? Very confusing here with tons and tons of forums. I did try looking but unsure where to post.

Thank you,

Angel

Wherever you got whatever Arcade MOD is throwing the error.
