I really couldn't encourage persisting in 1.1.x support.

There is now at least one (proven) SQL injection vulnerability in the base software that will not be patched. It's possible there are more vulnerabilities that are also unpatched.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

HI,

How to disable error log on SMF 1.1? I had 8GB database before I cleaned log table...

Need to update to 2.xx but until that would be nice to not get thousands of errors in minutes.

Thanks!

Admin -> Features and Options -> Enable error logging.

Do note that disabling the error log is not a solution to the problems, it just hides them from sight.

I have extracted fixes for preg_replace(_callback) from SMF 2.0.15 into a XML mod file which I use together with my own mod for 1.1.21.
If you have your own modifications, you can add this XML file and apply it or you can create new mod with that modifications.


How do I apply it?
Can you explain something else, or give some clue?
Thank you

since there are also a whole pile of security releases in 2.0 that were never applied in 1.1.21, it is recommended that you upgrade rather than trying to keep patching an outdated and sunset version...
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
