We are in the process of starting over. This means that the entire board at phpbbmodders.net has been set to read-only. All phpBB 2.x and 3.0.x content should be visible but read-only.

Recent issue with MCHAT

Post by WaGuns »

No files have changed, in quite a while. For some reason, around 1am this morning, my site popped up with this error message:

Image

This is line 974;

Code: Select all

$message_edit = mb_ereg_replace("'", "’", $message_edit);
Here is line 971-976;

Code: Select all

$message_edit = $row['message'];
				decode_message($message_edit, $row['bbcode_uid']);
				$message_edit = str_replace('"', '"', $message_edit); // Edit Fix ;)
				$message_edit = mb_ereg_replace("'", "’", $message_edit);				
				if (sizeof($foes_array))
				{
I disabled MChat in the ACP and the board came back to life. Just a bit ago, I re-enabled it and the error popped back up, so I disabled it again.

Any ideas?

You need to speak to your hosts, maybe they've updated php on your server and not added the mb_string extension.

mbstring or php-mbstring is usually compiled into php.

Go to your forum ACP > General and click on PHP information. Then search for the string mbstring and poke your host if it's missing (and Rich if it's there :) ).

Well, I haven't heard from Rich, but I think he got the message. Chat has resumed and the mbstring portion is back in my PHP configuration!

Yep, had to reconfigure PHP after upgrading from 5.3 (which is EOL) to 5.5.
