Group management is not working

Post by FX4 »

When I click to administer (manage) one of our three groups I get the following error:


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/fx4/public_html/includes/template.php(127) : eval()'d code on line 33


We are running phpBB 2.0.23


We recently moved the board from one server to another. Unfortunately I just took over maintaining the board so I don't know if this was a problem prior to the move.

Support for phpBB2 ended on Jan 1st 2009.

You will either need to google for a 3rd party support site or consider converting to phpBB3.

Well do you have a suggestion for a secondary support forum? I don't think it is wise to try and convert a broken board. I would like to get this board running properly before migrating it to 3.x.

If you search google, you'll probably find a few 3rd party support sites.
I think some people have links in their signatures here, so you could check that as well :)

I have checked on three other boards now and no response. I do keep pulling up answers in the archives on the phpBB support forum. Does anybody know when or have an estimate of when phpBB.com will be back up and restored? I think the answer to my problem lies in the archives for phpBB 2.x

None of the code from your old board is re-used, so that is NOT a concern. Your users and posts are almost certainly fine as they are.
The update process creates a second board alongside your existing board, so you can try converting to phpBB3 without damaging your existing board.
No, we cannot say precisely when phpbb.com will be available again. There is a LOT of information to be checked over to make sure the hacker did not corrupt it.

Do I have to worry about hacks installed in the old board? Or am I starting fresh and just importing users and templates?

You are starting fresh, and importing users and posts. No MODs or templates from phpBB2 will work on phpBB3.
The only MODs from phpBB2 which are imported are the "Attachment MOD" and the "Birthday MOD" (only the data is imported, phpBB3 contains equivalents of those MODs already.)

Okay that is probably the best path for us.

Thanks
