  1. Thanks Marc, I understand the reason this happens. But I don't understand why I, the admin of the site, get notified when a member have given the wrong address, especially during the registration process. You should somehow be able to check a "Don't notify me of undelivered registration emails" preference... πŸ€”
  2. The last few weeks I have started to get email from my IPB, see below. These are obviously spammers that don't have a legit email address. Is there any way to NOT get these emails? Tia, Andreas
  3. I am 100% sure that in IPB3.x I as a moderator could move posts to another thread, but it seems impossible to do it in Invision Community. This seems very strange, what have I missed? πŸ€” Found it. You have to give moderators access in the IPB control panel.
  4. At my forum you can't see who reacted to your post. It only says "Somebody reacted to your post". Even when hovering, or clicking on the reaction, doesn't give away who gave the reaction. Here, at the Invision Community, you do see who reacted. I have looked for a setting that regulate this, but couldn't find anything. Where's the setting for this? Bad: Good: Tia! /andreas 🀠
  5. I serached for the letter "a" and found 2 pages of accounts, all banned. I counted them to 37. I want to delete them, and pressed the Prune Members Found, and got this: "This action will remove 2 members from the community completely. Are you sure you wish to proceed? This action cannot be undone! It is recommended that you perform a backup of your database before running this tool, as a precautionary measure." How can 37 found members be 2? <rant> Really, why is this so hard? What happened to the checkboxes we where used to in v3? And all other normal databases. It's a shame really. And why do I have to count the total myself? Shouldn't it just say somewhere "37 records found" or something!? </rant>
  6. Ok. I couldn't search for just "Banned", do you have a suggestion on what to search for? Thanks!
  7. Aye, should have emptied the cache first! πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Thanks!
  8. Just that this thread exists is a sign that it's done the wrong way. Furthermore, I can't find any "PRUNE MEMBERS" link in my Members page. I have some hundred spammers that I want to ban and delete. It's quite tedious to do this manually.... πŸ˜–
  9. I have uploaded a 40x48 .png file as the Favicon of our site. But it doesn't show. Instead, it shows an Apple logo (probably because the forum was placed on an Apple server before I moved it recently). Any ideas where to look? The Site: https://forum.aslsweden.com
  10. I found it! or, at least, I found a way to alter it. FWIW, here's the place:
  11. Thanks! Where do I put this code? 😝
  12. I added a thumbs up emoji and made it the default one (ie, I dragged it to the top). But it's only visible when you hover the reaction space. Look at the attached screen capture to see what I mean. What's up with that? SkΓ€rminspelning 2021-03-24 kl. 16.34.23.mov
  13. I have 202 tables that has to be changed. Is there any way to do them all at once? 😬 SQL: v5.5.5-10.1.47-MariaDB phpMyAdmin 5.0.3
  14. Yey! The forum is up an running! Couldn't have done it without the help from you splendid people! πŸ‘πŸ» I have some small issues, that I'll look into later. πŸ™‚ Edit: Actually, I have two errors that I can't seem to solve: 1. Avatars are gone, and all embedded pictures are gone (replaced by question marks). The paths to these are set correctly, what have I missed? Edit: Example: Look at this page. Avatars and pictures are not there. If you hover the embedded pictures it says the URL should be /uploads/monthly... etc. I don't have any "monthly" folder in my uploads folder. And I didn't have it on the old forum either!? Edit 2: Ok, weird: The update package contains a folder called "Uploads". In the instructions it says you should upload the package and replace all files. Thusly, all Uploaded files was overwritten. I'm currently restore a backup, but *why* is this folder included in the update package!? 2. I have this error: "You have one or more InnoDB tables that are using the `Compact` row format. This may limit the amount of data that can be stored within the table. We recommend changing it to 'Dynamic'. If you are not sure how to do this, you should contact your hosting provider or system administrator for assistance." I have googled this but can't seem to find a correct solution. Edit: I found this thread and am awaiting answer. πŸ˜…
  15. Actually, I installed an entirely new entity of mySQL... I have some errors reported on my IPB (how do you abbreviate Invision Community?) installment, I should fix those first. But that will be tomorrow, I am too tired now to think. I was so happy after the succeded update of macOS/PHP and IPB4, so i just wanted to move the stuff... Thanks CoffeCake, you are awesome!
  16. Gaaah.... bash-3.2# mysqldump -u root -p aslsweden --default-character-set=utf8mb4 > /Users/admin/Desktop/aslsweden_backup.sql Enter password: mysqldump: Couldn't execute 'SELECT COLUMN_NAME, JSON_EXTRACT(HISTOGRAM, '$."number-of-buckets-specified"') FROM information_schema.COLUMN_STATISTICS WHERE SCHEMA_NAME = 'aslsweden' AND TABLE_NAME = 'ibf_bbcode_mediatag';': Unknown table 'column_statistics' in information_schema (1109)
  17. Ah, I thought it was installed by deafult... 🀦
  18. Thanks. I have tried taking a backup with phpMyAdmin, I get some errors and a backup is never taken. If I run mysqldump i get "command not found"... 😞 I did upgrade the character set during upgrade. Edit: Aha, the *backup* must be correctly encoded. Understood! Again, I am stuck. How the eff do I take an SQL backup if mysqldump don't work...? 😩
  19. It's like putting up a sign saying "Don't touch this surface".... πŸ˜‚ Actually, I'm stuck at taking a backup of the database. I wonder if I could use the backup I took before the upgrade? I guess not, but I'll figure it out....
  20. FWIW: After countless tries of upgrading PHP to v7, I eventually moved all other services (email and web) on the server to other places, so it was only the forum left. After that I upgraded the Mac to High Sierra (that includes PHP 7.1). And after that I could do the upgrade from IPB 3 to 4. I don't know how many hours I have spent on trying to upgrade PHP manually. Brew, Xcode, manual installations, etc etc. Someone that is a Unix Wizard would probably solve this in 10 minutes, unfortunately I am not... 😝 Now I'm about to move v4 to the new server. Wish me luck! πŸ‘πŸ˜€
  21. Thanks Paul. If I check the IPS4 checker it says that the php.ini file is located in /etc while the terminal says it's located in /usr/local.... So, how the eff do I upgrade THAT version to 7? ...or change what PHP version IPB (Apache I guess) will use? There's a reason I'm moving to Plesk and an own VPS, I haven't updated this machine in a couple of years, so when you ask me about Security upgrades I'm like "douh?" πŸ˜‚ (sorry, that's the harsh truth.)
  22. I have actually done the brew installation, but the result is as mentioned. But I will try it again, what could possibly go wrong? I also saw in your URL about "brew uninstall" which I haven't done. My guess though is that it will just sabotage my 7.2 installation and not the v5 installation.
  23. Today I am on an old OS X 10.11 El Capitan server that is my own. So I can basically do whatever I want with it. I'm moving to a VPS at Digital Ocean, where everything is ready with PHP 7.2 etc etc. I am no expert on these things (as you probably have noticed πŸ˜‚), but I am patient and I can do installations based on instructions. But now I am stuck – I don't know how I can update PHP that IPB uses.
  24. Did that and it points of course to the old version. How do I install PHP 7 in this location, *or* get IPB to point to the new install?
