    At last....

    I have fixed the problem that we were having on the site5 servers. I do not know the exact reason for the crashes, although I narrowed it down to one line of code. I am still awaiting a response from the site5 sysadmin to get back to me on some details so that I can report the bug officially to the PHP team.

    The workaround will be in the next version, and I can explain how to add it to the current version if people need it urgently. Email me if you do.

    Cheers,
    John

    Mafukie... Aaron was just kidding you. We give our source files away for a living!

    Good work, Makukie! I'm glad to see that you finally got it working.

    Just a few (random) thoughts; nobody "rips off" anybody here. Where I'm sure everbody appreciates originality, the thing I love about a growing community such as this, is that we all help each other out. If I have an idea, and someone else uses it too, more power to them. It is rare that I have an idea good enough to be used by someone other than me.

    My point, is that this is a community, as you said. Please don't feel like you are ripping anybody else off. We all share ideas here. Though as I said, originality is always welcome.

    Werehere, or anyone else, please feel free to scold me if I am far off track here...

    Again, congratulations Mafukie!

    hehe, the colors are not copyrighted or anything, but that was a nice thing you have done by changing them around

    You have been great at working this out... Thanks!

    Waiting Patiently,

    site5 situation update

    I have been working non stop for the last two days trying to identify and resolve the issues on the site5 servers.

    Symptoms: A thread, with more that one post in, returns to the browser an empty document. This is in fact an HTTP 400 - Bad Request error. On further investigation into the Apache log file, it appears that PHP is causing some seg faults:

    FATAL: emalloc(): Unable to allocate 1515870815 bytes
    [Sun May 21 19:18:38 2000] [notice] child pid 16531 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

    This problem appears to occur only on some site / database combinations. Notably, a script that will not work with one database may work with another one!

    Cause: the bbcodeparse function, and in particular, its use of the str_replace function. I have played around, and I have yet to find out why this should cause PHP to crash so violently, but to no avail. I have emailed the PHP mailing list in search of a reply, and I will be posting a bug report on the PHP bug lists area if nothing helpful comes along.

    Something for site5 site owners to try if they are having these problems: Install version 1.1.0, available in the members area, and then upgrade to 1.1.1, also available in the members area. I have not had a chance to test this as an alternative to installing version 1.1.1 straight off yet, so if anyone has a chance to do it before me, let me know.

    I am fairly convinced that this is not a bug with vBulletin, but I would like to get that confirmed by the PHP team. I hope to get this sorted out soon.

    Cheers,
    John
