Package Manager - Install Actions
Install Actions for archive php_4-3-9_fix.tar.gz:
Installing this package will perform the following actions:
   Type    Action    Description
1.    Execute Modification    ./Sources/Load.php    Failure
2.    Execute Modification    ./Sources/Search.php    Failure

i have the same problem. i uploaded the 2 files by ftp(/Sources). but the problem is still the same.
how may i correct this failure?

thanks,

carhartt
straight is great! ;)

No, the two files are an alternative to the package. If you've uploaded the two files then you are done.

Ya. My site was hacked because of this.

I highly doubt it was because of this but would suspect it was down to the phpbb exploit.

Applied the patch "successfully".

Now I can't login to the forum.  Well...I can't on Firefox.  I got the same error on IE, but then clicked the Home button and I was logged in.  It didn't do the same on Firefox.

Hmm... what version of PHP are you using?  Can I have a link and test account?

Ah, no patch from 5.0.2 to 5.0.3? Do I have to do a fresh install?

Not sure whether you're asking about patching PHP (don't think you can) or SMF but, if you're currently on PHP 5.0.2, you need PHP 5.0.3 (the preferred solution) and/or our SMF patch.

Thanks for the reply! I have a custom install version of php (meaning that they are not in the defualt directories and are spread out) Could I manualy just the files over the old ones or would I have to use an installer? I am not certain if the new version makes any registry entries. Could I keep my old php.ini file

Sorry for the newbie questions, usally I would read up on this but I would rather get this patched ASAP.

Don't take this the wrong way, but... do you even use SMF ^_^?

This forum is for... well, forum software written in PHP using MySQL.  Specifically, the forum software you're using now, if you're reading this message.

That said, I'm not sure if there's a patch, but I'd personally use bonsai to try to figure out what changes were made - or just browse the source.  I assume they use tags or branches for the releases, so it shouldn't be that difficult to find the commits on whatever tag/branch 4.3.10 was made.

Is that MySQL version for real?  SMF doesn't support any version of MySQL below 3.23.4... but, from your version, I'm going to hope you're actually using MySQL 4.1.8, which is a fairly recent version and very much recommended.

With the new release of SMF 1.0 final, should the PHP security patch be applied, or 1.0 is already patched?

1.0 has our patch applied, no need to put it in manually. But you should still upgrade PHP.

I should pay more attention, I know..

I've noticed that my host is running 4.3.4..  are there any probs known with this?

here is my config:

PHP built On:       FreeBSD netexp.34sp.com [nofollow] 4.9-STABLE FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE #0: Wed Jan i386
Database Version:    3.23.58
PHP Version:    4.3.4
Web Server:    Apache/1.3.31 (Unix) mod_python/2.7.10 Python/2.2.2 mod_webapp/1.2.0-dev mod_perl/1.29 mod_throttle/3.1.2 PHP/4.3.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2510 mod_ssl/2.8.18 OpenSSL/0.9.7d

notice the MySQL is a bit old as well.  What do you recommend I should ask for?   ???

Thx
