Hi,

As I'm tired of phpBB, I'm thinking in moving my foruns to FUD Forum.
To test it, I've created an experimental FUD forum and I've imported the phpBB 2 data, but it didn't work correctly. It imported everything but the message's text.
The original forum: http://www.fnei.net/forum/
The test forum: http://www.fnei.net/fudforum/

FUDforum: 2.7.3RC1

Is anyone experiencing the same? Do you want any debug info?

Regards,
Nuno

P.S.: yes, Ilia, I'm Nuno from PHP.net Wink

Did you run the conversion script on the command line or via the browser? I suspect the script didn't have permissions to write to the messages/ directory where the message bodies are being stored.

yayck, what a fast answer.. Smile

Yep, I have run it from the browser.
The initial directory (public_html/fudforum) had permitions set to 777. I've checked now and the messages's dir permissions are 711. Well, this is not good, but maybe the installer could have take care of it (safe mode is disabled).

I'll run the converter script again after changing the dir permissions.

P.S.: BTW, the forum only become usable after running the consistency test.

Ahah.
Update: the script works fine after I run the 'Forum Consistency' test.
It only breaks the forum after I run the 'Compact Messages' script. Anyway the messages folder is always empty.

The consistency checker run is mandatory after running conversion script, iirc the conversion script mentions that at the end of its run.

As far as the compactor goes, are the message bodies visible prior to its execution?

Yep!
After running it, they disappear.

Ok, bug in the compactor then, need to trace that problem, I've had people report it earlier and 2.7.3RC1 should've fixed it. At least I could not longer replicate the problem.

Anyhow there is just one place in compact.php where files are being removed. Block under the "/* remove old message files */" comment. If you are willing, try to add a debug line there to see what it is trying to remove.

OK, so here it goes:
* it first deletes all msg_* files (line 145).

* Then it was supposed to move all tmp_* to msg_*. The problem is that there are no tmp_* file there. So I end up with no files in the messages's folder.

* In addition, after running this script, error_log gets filled with:
[27-Set-2005 18:40:47] PHP Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/fneinet/public_html/fudforum/include/theme/default/db.inc on line 128

So the error may be a non-validated sql result. I don't know..

Any more hints to help in the debugging?

OK, after a quick sleep, I've found the cause:
$r = q('SELECT m.id, m.foff, (..)');

while ($r = db_rowarr($c)) {
	if ($r[4] && $r[2] > $r[4]) {


the problem is that you are passing the $c var to db_rowarr() which isn't defined at all, instead of passing the $r result.

Yup that was it, silly typo.
The fixed version of the compactor can be found here:

OK. I think it is now working correctly.
Next week I'll give you some feedback about what I and our users think about the forum.
