mysql inheritance

Post by psykx.out » Tue Oct 23, 2007 1:02 pm

how would a mod inherit the data for the phpbb3 mysql database? could it be I'm having problems because I'm trying to use mysqli? the error I'm getting is:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method mysqli::sql_close() in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/phpBB3/includes/functions.php on line 3487

Code: Select all

$template->set_filenames(array(
	'body' => 'a_portal/recent.html')
);
The error is coming from this bit of code ^ but I reckon it's gto something to do with this

Code: Select all

$query = "SELECT topic_title, forum_id, topic_id, topic_first_poster_name FROM phpbb_topics ";
if ($result = $db->query($query))
    {
    // fetch associative array 
    while ($row = $result->fetch_assoc())
        {
        printf ("%s (%s)\n", $row["topic_title"], $row["topic_first_poster_name"]);
        }

    /* free result set */
    $result->close();
    }
}
// auto auth
	if ( ($auth->acl_get('f_read', $row['forum_id'])) || ($row['forum_id'] == '0') )
	{
		$template->assign_block_vars('latest_hot_topics', array(
			'FULL_TITLE'	=> censor_text($row['topic_title']),
			'U_VIEW_TOPIC'	=> append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}viewtopic.$phpEx", 'f=' . $row['forum_id'] . '&t=' . $row['topic_id'])
			)
		);
	}

Ok it came down to me having the variable names the same for both the inbuilt mysql and my mysqli functions... although if someone can tell me how to use the inbuilt functions I'd be grateful

I think that if you read those two pages of the code documentation (the DBAL class and the DBAL_Mysqli class), and if you look more closely at the code itself, you'll understand better the DBAL system :)

For example, your code must be :

Code: Select all

$sql = 'SELECT topic_title, forum_id, topic_id, topic_first_poster_name
        FROM phpbb_topics';
$result = $db->sql_query($sql);

while ($row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result))
{
    // are you sure you want to use printf here? the template system is way more powerful...
    printf("%s (%s)\n", $row["topic_title"], $row["topic_first_poster_name"]);
}
$db->sql_freeresult($result);

if ($row['forum_id'] == 0 || $auth->acl_get('f_read', $row['forum_id']))
{
    $template->assign_block_vars('latest_hot_topics', array(
        'FULL_TITLE'    => censor_text($row['topic_title']),
        'U_VIEW_TOPIC'    => append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}viewtopic.$phpEx", 'f=' . $row['forum_id'] . '&t=' . $row['topic_id']))
    );
}

Cheers for that I'll check the docs more carefully next time ;)

I have re-written a test page using your code example but I keep getting this error

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class dbal_mysqli in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/phpBB3/includes/db/mysqli.php on line 446

I have this include line

Code: Select all

include($phpbb_root_path . '/includes/db/mysqli.' . $phpEx);
I've googled it but I can't work it out (I have php5 and mysql 5 with mysqli compiled in) I'm using rc7

Why are you including that file? thats not how to use the Database class... it’s declared automatically and should not be called directly. -- Therefore, take that line out and it will work.
