Problem with CleanTalk extension - Absolution

Problem with CleanTalk extension

by sarazib » Wed Jun 14, 2017 1:13 pm

(This is a repeat of the post I just made on the CleanTalk extension board, because I don't know who to talk to about the error I get when I try to enable the CleanTalk extension -- I don't know where the problem module UCP_AUTH_LINK_MANAGE comes from, so I am posting in both places.)

I am running phpBB 3.2 and using the Absolution theme as the default. I backed up my installation, then I deleted everything in the /ext folder, including the installed phpBB extension VigLink because I have not been able to install the CleanTalk extension.

On each attempt for a clean install, when I click on Enable and confirm that I want to enable, I get the error message shown in the screenshot:
If I then go back, I see the following screen:
If I delete the data and try again from the beginning, including removing the cleantalk folder and uploading it again, I get a blank page when I try to enable it again:
If I go back and restore from the backup I made, everything happens exactly the same after the restore--first the error message, and then a blank screen if I delete the data and try to enable it again.

What is the source of this error and how can I fix it?

WHAT would have placed a prior copy of the module UCP_AUTH_LINK_MANAGE? Is this in the theme or in the phpBB original installation? I used the Installatron script to install the phpBB progam on my server and everything else seems to be working OK.

I really am stuck here and want to be able to use the Absolution theme and Cleantalk for my antispam solution. I have put in a ticket on the CleanTalk site and got nowhere with that. All they told me to do was go through the steps I have already gone through several times. This error is 100% repeatable and occurs just as I have described: error message, and then a blank screen if I try to enable after removing the data.

Any help that anyone can give me with this will be greatly appreciated.
