  • All Phrases Missing..blank dropdowns and buttons

    twice in the past 3 days, something happens to my forum where all the phrases go missing. all dropdowns and buttons are blank



    weird thing is, i also have a VB4 test environment setup in another directory running off a separate database, and the same thing happens there too. I have to fix it by running the install/upgrade.php script. any ideas?

    Are you using memcache or xcache and do you have a different prefix set up for each site in the config.php file?

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      no to cache software, yes to different prefix. both sites are on totally separate databases

        Are you getting anything in the error_logs or access_logs? Have you tried looking in the phrase table when this happens to see if it is actually disappearing? Are you using the Datastore Cache at all (config.php option)?

          nothing unusual in any logs. the phrase table is intact. no datastore caching is enabled.
          when i login to the admincp when this is happening, i get this on the redirect screen
          Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in [path]/includes/functions_login.php on line 332

          i made a copy of the database while its in this state and set it up on a test site if anyone wants to take a look

            Try disabling your modifications/plugins and see if you still have this problem.
            Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

            PHP Code:
            define('DISABLE_HOOKS'true);

              yes this was done and it still happens. its happening 1-2 times per day. I have not made any changes or updates to my board since 3.8.4PL2 a few months ago..this issue only started recently.

                Do you remember doing anything on your site around the time this started? Have you asked your host if they did any software upgrades on your server around that time? It may be that you should put in a support ticket and have support take a look at your site.

                    For the missing phrases, have you tried uploading tools.php to your admin cp and running the language import? (As always, do a database backup beforehand.)

                      I have the same problem with 3.8.5 - tried Tools.php and no luck - finally resolved it by going to the admincp and as I couldn't see the rebuild all languages link I manually entered it into my browser:
                      -your forum address-/admincp/language.php?do=rebuild&goto=language.php?

                      I then went out of the admincp and then went back in and all was ok

                      Hope this helps someone
