conf/settings update problem...

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Greetings all, just did a check for updates from my forum's settings area. Seemed to go through okay - Vanilla returned the message that no new updates were available - but on returning to the front page of my site, the following line of script appears at the top of the page: $Configuration['LAST_UPDATE'] = '1155298086'; ?> Looking at the conf/settings file, it would seem that Vanilla tried to update $Confirgration['LAST_UPDATE'], but wrote the update OUTSIDE of the php that already existed in the file. Easy fix - I can manually update settings.php. But does anyone know what causes this? I've noted it's happened before on one or two other extensions that I've enabled in the past, but it doesn't seem to happen with everything... Thanks in advance for any suggestions...


  • Any thoughts, anyone, please? ;)

    That's kind of odd. Check for extra space after the last ?> in the file. Also, what OS is your server on?
  • Hmm. Seems there was an extra space, or at least a carriage return - no way of telling whether that was there originally, or if I left it there by mistake after the most recent update. As far as the OS goes - my host runs Apache on Free BSD... Thanks for weighing in, Mark - from reading up on the Lussumo blog and elsewhere, you've got a lot on your hands. One of the nice things about Vanilla is that you (the creator) care enough about your product AND your community of users to actually have input in support queries like these. It's appreciated... ;)

    Did removing that extra space fix the problem for you?
  • Just installed Yellow Fade as a test - seemed to work without the weird appending of additional variables... Thanks!
  • Nuh uh. Same problem still exists. Just enabled the poll and saved searches extension, and here are the last 4 lines of my conf/setting file: ?>$Configuration['EXTENSION_POLL_VERSION'] = '1.0'; $Configuration['SAVED_SEARCHES_SETUP'] = '1'; $Configuration['EXTENSION_POLL_VERSION'] = '1.0'; ?> Weird. I'm going to update to 1.0.1 (I've been running 1.0) and hopefully that'll knock out the kinks.
