This is very, very strange.  Can you take this problem to simpleportal.net? If a certain shoutbox entry can cause such a problem in one of the functions in load.php, there might be a bug somewhere, or at least a performance issue.
I don't know if the problem is with simpleportal, or if simpleportal has found some other kind of problem with SMF or with your database.

This one could be very tricky to sort out. Did you save copies of the shoutbox entries that caused you the problems?
It is very difficult to figure out a problem if you cannot make it happen again...

Thanks AngelinaBelle,

  In fact, I've noticed that the problem is solid. ( at least for my system)

Deleted the old ones ( shoutbox)

Created fresh ones ( both shoubox and block related)

  If no entry in the block,  fine ..  ( main pages loads properly)

As soon as I enter something ( Like "test", no special character) in the shoutbox, and try to load the main page, facing the same failure. mysql has gone away ...


Seems some settings for shoutbox in the DB somehow corrupted.

I hope it's clear..   

DB entries attached

 Strange then ever :-) .

 Didnt delete shoutbox  but deleted only  block for it.  Recreated a new block (exactly same parms) .
Tested with any character and no problem up to now. 

I can hardly explain what happened between the steps ...

Finally seems solved.  Sorry for bothering ...

Just tried to download and install this package on my 2.0 forum and received the following error:

The package you tried to upload either is not a valid package or has become corrupted.

I get this if i try to emulate RC4 as well, and I've tried multiple downloads on two PC's with the same result.

Any thoughts?

Edit - turn of emulation and it installs fine :)

Why would you upgrade to RC5 when 2.0 final has been out since Saturday?

Anyway... can anyone confirm that SP works fine on 2.0 final if you emulate RC4 during install? Or are there bugs/issues and we need to wait for an updated version of SP?

Good question... I didn't see it. Either case it wasn't working...

I just installed 2.3.3 to SMF 2.0 without using emulation and it seems to be working fine.

In that case I should start testing my version of 2.0 Final, ugh. Here we go again...

Ok, I upgraded to 2.0 installed SP 2.3.3 and again, it is no where to be found. It's been awhile...so am I missing a step adding SP?

I know this sounds stupid...but it isn't anywhere. It's like it's not installing although it says it is. There is no config settings, there is no menu for it nothing. The only thing I can think is it says its installing but there is some small detail missing that in my case is the case and the problem.

It sounds like Package Manager was mistaken. It thought it completed the installation, but clearly it did not.
Often, this is caused by permission problems. Please see http://simpleportal.net/index.php?action=docs;area=solving_install_problems for more on this.

This has happened because some other mod or customization has changed the file SSI.php in that one spot, and the Package Manager cannot find what it is looking for.

Click on the pencil-and-paper icon next to the failed test. You will see exactly what it was looking for.
You can find this section in the ORIGINAL version of SSI.php, see which line it is on, and look near that line number in your changed SSI.php to find out what has happened to that part of the file.

Now that you can see what is going on, your choices are:
1) Uninstall the mod that is causing the problem.  You can re-install it afterwards. No guarantee this will solve the problem, though -- both mods are looking at the same piece of code.
2) Now that you have identified the difficulty, you may install the mod semi-manually -- tell Package Manager to ignore errors, then make this one change yourself.

Thank You.

If I have a permission error and I can't install new packages which folder I have to modify?
