(Old) Forum issues ?

Postby UBT - Timbo » Thu Sep 18, 2014 8:13 pm

Hi all,

I've been getting a couple of "404 - page not found" errors, when trying to login to the forum.

Plus a few CGI issues, when going from section to section.

If anyone else has this issue, can you log the time and date and which error and when you get a chance, post it here.

I've been in touch with Darren and with luck he can fix it. We're also talking about giving the place a lick of paint....so, be patient and we'll see what we can do :)

regards
Tim

Hi Tim,

I've been getting a LOT of CGI messages the past couple of days (better today), not had a 404 yet though.

I also noticed that when trying to preview a reply earlier tonight all I got was my signature. It posted correctly though.

I'll keep a note of dates, times and errors from now on.

Thanks Mark.

Darren has sent a report to 1 and 1 (the webhosting company) and hopefully the CGI stuff is either a server issue or maybe a bandwidth issue. But with luck, it should "go away"....but like all these things, logging when it happens means that we can check the server logs and maybe nail the problem down more quickly.

Fingers crossed it's just an anomaly, though it has only been happening for no more than maybe a week or so ?

Tim

No CGI issues today (yet) but I had another instance of a post preview not showing up at 09:07 today in the 'ebay listings of BFL / R-Boxes etc' forum, post 100284. I could preview the previous reply without posting it with no problems.

EDIT:
Going back and attempting to edit it shows the same problem, signature but nothing else and an empty edit box - 09:15 Other posts of mine were fine.

EDIT EDIT:
But the next time it was alright - 09:18

Everything else seems fine now.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for this :)

TBH, I've not used the "preview" function until yesterday and I had the same issue, in that there was none of my "ramblings" shown - just a blank box.

So, I'll report this to Darren as well.

regards
Tim

Hi Tim,

No problems.

It's only some posts but I haven't bothered seeing if there's a common feature yet (too many quotes, nested quotes, hyperlinks etc)

Hi all,

There were some forum access issues this morning - I'm not 100% sure as to why but the forum is working OK now.

I've sent an email to Darren so hopefully he can look into the cause and let me know.

Sorry for any inconvenience

regards
Tim

Hi all

It looks like the "OLD" forum has died.

All I see is:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function set_magic_quotes_runtime() in /homepages/6/d38964369/htdocs/forum.ubt/common.php:29 Stack trace: #0 /homepages/6/d38964369/htdocs/forum.ubt/index.php(26): include() #1 {main} thrown in /homepages/6/d38964369/htdocs/forum.ubt/common.php on line 29


Anyone else confirm this?

regards
Tim

Yes - it started happening a couple of weeks ago but I assumed John had started updating so hadn't mentioned it.

Hi Mike

John admins the ubtstats.co.uk website (although the promied updates haven't happened yet).

The "old" forum (at forum.ukboincteam.com) admin was Darren.

I *think* that something has happened on either the database server, or the ukboincteam.com domain - and as I've not heard back from Darren, your guess is as good as mine as to what's happened :-(

Tim
