Board with SEO, errors after update to phpBB 3.0.1 ?

Postby GoBieN » Sun Apr 20, 2008 7:22 pm

Your board's URL: http://www.camino-tuning.be
Version of phpBB3: 3.0.1
Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)? Upgrade from 2.0.21 to 3 RC4 -> RC5 -> GOLD -> 3.0.1

MODs you have installed: Gallery, Seo-mod (mixed, no dupe, zero dupe, keywords), links in new window, profiles on the left, portal, highslide, integrated errors
When the problem started: Update to 3.0.1 with autmatic updater

Additionally, you may wish to provide the following (where applicable)
Template(s) used: ProSilver
Language(s) used: NL/ENG

The problem i'm having is that when i click on on the admin control panel i get asked for my pasword (so far so good). Then i click on the link to continue, and i get a blank page. Both in IE and in FF.

This also happens when click on manage attachments in UCP, the rest of UCP works fine. Also MODCP isn't working.

And some topics lead to a blank page for no obvious reason.

Did you had any problem when running the updater ?

Blanck pages most likely means that debug is not turned on, could you edit config.php and replace :
Code: Select all
// @define('DEBUG', true);
// @define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);

with :
Code: Select all
@define('DEBUG', true);
@define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);


To see if you get an error message instead of the white page.

As well, please make sure that the domain name set in the phpBB config is the good one (in phpbb_config table, server_name field).

Code: Select all
<?php
// phpBB 3.0.x auto-generated configuration file
// Do not change anything in this file!
$dbms = 'mysql';
$dbhost = '';
$dbport = '';
$dbname = '*******';
$dbuser = '********l';
$dbpasswd = '*******';

$table_prefix = 'phpbb3_';
$acm_type = 'file';
$load_extensions = '';

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
@define('DEBUG_TEMPLATES', true);
@define('DEBUG', true);
@define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);
?>


Debugging is on :(

SQL field server_name: www.camino-tuning.be

board located at http://www.camino-tuning.be/phpBB3/index.php (but i have virtual root enabled in SEO)

What i have done last night, is made a copy of my 3.0.1 forum root.
And uploaded the 3.0.0 backup i had made before the upgrade. (only files, not DB). Now i can login, but all topics and index and viewforum are blank.
ACP is working now. I deleted all files in the cache folder (phpbb & seo) and then set all the SEO settings again. Really thinking of goging back to the 3.0.1 state since that was better then what i have now !

So it's even worse then after the upgrade, was there a huge DB change perhaps ?

Thx, need help urgent.

The error most likely comes from the phpBB3.0.0 => 3.0.1 update, our mods are compatible, have you checked about the others ?

I don't know about running a 3.0.1 db with a 3.0.0 script, but I assume it's not the thing to do for phpBB to work properly.

Don't you have a backup of the previous db as well ?

If debugging is on and no error messages show up, it can be related to languages files, at least this is where I look first.

I would have to check, but as I recall, phpBB 3.0.1 added a new column to the sessions table. Therefore, a 3.0.0 install would technically run against a 3.0.1 database without serious consequence, but a 3.0.1 install would fail very early if connected to a 3.0.0 database.

A typo in a template file will do the same thing. For example, if viewtopic_body.html is missing a closing <!-- ENDIF -->, the template won't compile. If the ISP has php.ini settings to suppress error display (mine does), you see a blank page instead.

I would run the same scenario on a local install (XAMPP or similar) where you can control the environment. Debugging a live install is not fun, especially if you do not have control of the base PHP.

I think i'll start with a SEO pre-mod and add some mods to it, test it and go live with it. To bad it will cost me hours of work :(
