Title: hoping to find some clues and answers about some errors from the server
Post by: marcnyc on February 02, 2006, 11:00:36 AM
Hello guys...
I have been successfully running SMF on my server for a few years...
A few days ago the server went down for a day and the hosting company moved (as in either moved the hard drive or copied the files, I am trying to find that out now) my site to another machine to avoid/reduce further downtime.
Unfortunately ever since they did this, after every log in to SMF I get a blank page with errors (see below).

The hosting company says everything is the same and blames it on the scripts and I know you guys will blame it on the host, so I just wanna make clear that I am only here to try to make sense out of the errors and I would apprecaite your help... Any clues as to what settings on the server might be screwing this up would greatly help me.

The errors are:

You may look at the phpinfo() of my (new) server here:
http://www.chaindlk.com/sources/_phpinfo_.php (http://www.chaindlk.com/sources/_phpinfo_.php)

The installation of SMF is here:
http://www.chaindlk.com/community (http://www.chaindlk.com/community) (it is bridged with Mambo)

Here is the status file:
http://www.chaindlk.com/community/status.php (http://www.chaindlk.com/community/status.php)

I have changed NOTHING in the last several months so I know this is not related to Mambo or anything else... I know this must be happening because of some different settings on the new machine they moved me to and since I am not an apache/php/server expert, I would greatly appreciate if you had any ideas as to what this could be caused by and how to address it.
Thanks a million.

Thank you very much... I knew somebody here would have a clue....

I have SMF 1.0.1
Is there a way that I can make it compatible with PHP 4.4 without having to upgrade to SMF 1.0.5?
I am just afraid that my integration with Orstio's Mambo bridge will stop working correctly...

You NEED to upgrade to 1.0.6. Anything below has security issues.

Assuming you are use the latest bridge and the latest Mambo too you should be fine.
