Per Arantor, upgrading to current version will fix the error.  Should do that anyway as you're four updates behind, there were security patches.  I see you have another forum at .13 and two at .15.

You'll have to fix your php versions, too.  tradgang is 2.0.15 in php 5.5.18, tradmla 2.0.15 in 7.3.18, can't find bpg, and don't have any access to loopaddictions.  If it's running in 7.x that could be causing the error.  Look in Admin -> Support and Credits for version info.

Found it, bpg is 2.0.13 in 5.5.18.

the problem (complete failure of the forum search engine) is solely with tradmla.org ....

Version Information:
Forum version: SMF 2.0.15 (more detailed)
Current SMF version: SMF 2.0.17
GD version: bundled (2.1.0 compatible)
Database Server: MySQL
MySQL version: 5.1.63-community-log
PHP: 7.3.18
Server version: Apache

... the other three are running 5.5.18

it looks as if going from 15 to 16 for tradmla org will work, zero errors on the patch mod install, just don't want to execute the patch until i coordinate with the server manager for a complete backup.  i'll see how it goes on monday or tuesday.

those three other forums will be going to php 7.3 soon, too.

Never seen that error before.  Are you using a search index?  You can try removing it, see if search works with no index, then create a new index.  Otherwise may as well wait until you can do the upgrades.  If you need help with it post here or pm me.

fairly sure 2.0.15 does not work on 7.3, not really sure if 7.2 worked....may need to lower your php version...I know that 2.0.17 works with 7.2, I don't think it works for 7.3 (or it mostly works but still some errors)

Arantor

And the problem, as asserted right back in the first post (someone else's solved topic, I might add) is that you're running code that doesn't work on 7.1+ on 7.1+.

right - clearly in the case of the tradmla.org forum, the search engine problem is with the php 7.3 version versus its 2.0.15 SMF release.

going from 15 to 16 looks like it will work ok, and i will implement that patch mod on tuesday after the entire system is server backed up.  if all is well, i'll see what happens with 16 going to the final 17. 

if i understand patch mods correctly, as opposed to a "large upgrade", it will render the upgrade to 2.0.16 but will not affect themes, icons, profiles, avatars, attachments, threads, posts, etc.


Arantor

Yup, because it works exactly like any other mod. (Because it is a mod itself)

thanx for the confidence boost, arantor!  <thumbs up!>

RFD

another thought - after the server backup, would it be best to go into maintenance mode when implementing a patch upgrade?

Gary

You can if you want, but usually isn't needed. Patches update you to the next version immediately on install.

So it's down to your personal choice if you want to go into maintenance mode during patch upgrades.
