  • November Birthdates Problem

    Hi I seem to be having a little problem with the birthdates.. if someone edits there birthdate or sets it for the first time it seems to set the birthdate to the November 30th 2002.. no matter if you edit it again it stays at 30th November.. I'm running 2.2.3 (not upgrading as it was working before and also alot of hacks inside) with Redhat 7.3 (was going it on 7.2 aswell)

    I'll post up all my server details tomorrow.
    But for now just wondering if anyone ran into this, I see someone mentioned it before though search but lead no where.

    I believe I recall seeing a problem with November birthdays mentioned in the vB3 development forums. A developer posted that the issue was fixed in vB3. I'm not sure if that problem carries over to vB2 though...

      Here is my phpinfo

        I'm not aware of this ever being a bug in any 2.2.x version of vB.

        There's a few things with your phpinfo that will cause problems for you, although I'm not sure if this is one of them. Most notably you need to set file_uploads on. To do this add this line to php.ini:

        file_upload = On

        Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

        Mankind is the only creature smart enough to know its own history, and dumb enough to ignore it.

          Here's the thread I was referencing earlier:

          Interestingly enough, the date was November 30th as well. Perhaps they could shed some light on what the issue was.

            Yes that was the tread I was refering too, says it's fixed but no resolution.. wonderful.

              That's the vb3 bug forum and I don't recall what the problem was at the moment.

                Well, the problem hasn't been mentioned before for vB2. Since no one other than Jelsoft is running vB3, providing a resolution for it would be.. well pointless. But with that thread in mind, perhaps a developer could examine what the fix entailed and let you know how to apply it to your installation.

                I have not noticed this problem in 2.2.7. That being said, I've not gone and created an account to make sure. None of our users have complained about it though.

                  On, there's actually a relatively small number of birthdays on November 30th:


                  I'm going to have to assume that this is an issue with either the particular OS your server is running or your version of php. Fill out a support ticket at

                  Include your URL, Admin CP username and password, and ftp username and password. I think this issue is something a developer is going to have to log in and look at more closely.

                  Good luck!

                    Well VB Support helped me all the wanted too so I hope some of you guys might have some things to share.

                    What is basicaly happening is that a user can't change his birthdate though the USER CP but I can change it fine though the admin section. I'm sure it's just a dodgy line of code from a hack or something.. Ask for code and you shall receive. Don't want to rip out all the hacks then upgrade in hoping of fixing it.

                    Oh btw it's not only November 30th it's stuck on some are stuck one 29th and 31st September..
