  • Site works on hosting with IPv6
  • I get this error too. Unless you're accessing the site via IPv4, vanilla complains about the IP address being too long, as IPv6 addresses are substantially longer than IPv4 addresses.

  • Before you install Vanilla you need to edit the following files:

    applications/conversations/settings/structure.php
    applications/dashboard/settings/structure.php
    applications/vanilla/settings/structure.php

    Change all lines that look like "->Column('*IPAddress', 'varchar(15)') so that the varchar is 39 characters long instead of 15.

    Conversations has 3, dashboard has 7 and structure has 4.

    You will need to check any application that you install in the future for the same.

    nice fix. I wonder if this is built into vanilla 2.1?

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    @peregrine Doesn't look like this was fixed in 2.1b1.

    Well, if it in't. If you desired, You could write a push request with the above code change by Harry Stern, if it works for you in vanilla 2.1b1

  • OK. The Henry Stern fix works in 2.1b1.

    Ok, so we need a gitHub bug # and probably a pull request with the solution. Bug # is important too.

  • Running test.com/index.php?p=/utility/update after changing these works to fix the issue if the files were edited after installation.
