   I got the same error with the new file.   I looked more carefully and the problem was the settings.php was zero bytes.  After copying in each of my backups I found one that worked.  So I'm good now.  Yay for reading the whole thread.

I hope I'm in the right post here.

I've just installed SMF 1.1.1 and everything went smoothly with no errors displayed, etc. But it doesn't seem to want to display the graphics;



I have used the repair_settings.php and everything came up with the same settings as suggested. I have checked the mysql database and the admin section and there are no errors at all but the images still won't display.

I have not installed anything other than the forum.

Thanks.

Did you upload all the files that came with the archive?  Seems like you didn't upload the icons dir. http://www.paid2hyip.com/forum/Themes/default/images/icons/

hi, can you use MSSQL instead MySQL? I get this error

Cannot connect to the MySQL database server with the supplied data.

If you are not sure about what to type in, please contact your host.
Unknown MySQL server host 'PENTIUM4\SQLEXPRESS' (11004)



and repair settings give me an error too:


Some settings are not being shown because the MySQL connection information is incorrect.

Currently, SMF is MySQL-only (although the next major version will support multiple database types, it won't be out for a while).

It shouldn't... You should be able to run both of them on the same PC :)

It looks like you set the URL (during setup) to "localhost", rather than the correct URL.
Go to Admin Panel → Server Settings and make sure the correct URL is set. Then, go to Admin Panel → Themes and Layout → Themes and Settings, check the URL at the bottom of the page is correct, and click on "Attempt to reset all themes".

If you have any further problems, please make a seperate topic for them (it's not really related to this topic ;))

Hello.  I cannot get the repair file to work.  It says Page not found error 404.

I just switched domain names and my smileys and other things are not clickable.  I hope you can help me!

what you have to is download that file, then upload it to your smf's root folder, for example hxxp:yourwebsite.com/smfdir/ [nonactive]


how do you specify it to upload it to there?

Well, it is not true that the repair_settings.php is innocent. It screwed up my board.
http://www.writingcenter3.teamhost.us/index.php

It also reports critical errors, which are not there.
It refers to an error, which does not exist:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: dropdownquicksearch() in /home/wimvinck/public_html/Sources/Load.php(1851) : eval()'d cod

There is no dropdownquicksearch in Load.php

So, be warned everyone. DON'T USE THE repair_settings.php!

How did repair_settings.php screw up your board? Seems to me like a mod issue and not an SMF issue.

There were some problems in the board with some mods.  But the repair_settings.php really brought it to the attention and right now before I need to go to work.

Well, remove all mods in the board and see what happens, not?
