Calling Cole...tech support

Post#1 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:34 am

Cole, the Back In Print forums (http://www.undermountain.org/forums/)were fine yesterday, then today this error comes up:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function set_magic_quotes_runtime() in /home2/undermou/public_html/forums/common.php:29 Stack trace: #0 /home2/undermou/public_html/forums/index.php(26): include() #1 {main} thrown in /home2/undermou/public_html/forums/common.php on line 29

And the newer forum (http://www.undermountain.org/Forum3/phpBB3/) comes back with this error:

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

mysql_connect function does not exist, is mysql extension installed? []

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.


Any clue what that means? Tech support at Hostmonster is spotty at best. :roll:

The person in charge of editing the pages needs to be contacted ;)

but the error is caused because the MYSQL database is not connecting to the pages. They need to open his code and correct the MYSQL options so that those pages can communicate again with his database ;)

It will look like something like this;

$dbhost = 'ip address goes here';
$dbport = 'dbport'';
$dbname = 'dbname';
$dbuser = 'usernamehere';
$dbpasswd = 'dbpassword';

If those aren't ALL correct, it wont connect period ;)

Those forums are self configuring. Just go to the index page and follow along, fill in the data as asked and it will work ;)

Thanks Cole! I called tech support when I realized they'd done a PHP update. Got them to fix it, so we're up and running! :thumbs:
