    [Forum] Fatal error: Call to a member function

    I'm receiving a strange error message, but not sure what it means:

    Fatal error
    : Call to a member function query_read() on a non-object in /home/******/public_html/sims/global.php(29) : eval()'d code on line 3

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Make sure that file is uploaded properly to the server.

      Anything with eval()'d code on line XX in it refers to a template or plugin.

      Looking at Global.php at line 29 shows me this:
      PHP Code:
      ($hook vBulletinHook::fetch_hook('global_start')) ? eval($hook) : false
      You would need to disable all plugins on the global_start hook until you find the right one. Then you need to contact the author of the plugin and have them fix the issue.

      To get the system working initially, please use the config file to disable the plugin system.

      To do this, edit your vBulletin config.php file currently on the server by adding the following line after the <?php line:

      define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

      Then reupload the config.php file into your forum's includes folder.

      Afterward, go to the ACP -> Plugins & Products and under both 'Manage Products' and 'Plugin Manager' disable all non-vB products and plugins.

      Make sure to go to both the 'Manage Products' and 'Plugin Manager' locations.

      Then remove that line from the config file.
