Fatal Error in Gdn_Database.Query();
I recently have some trouble accessing the dashboard of my forum. When I turned on the debug, I got this error message
Here's my Vanilla's app info
Additional information for support personnel:
Application Version: 2.1.8p2

Have anyone ever seen this before?
You vanilla version is way out of date. I could sit here diagnosing it for you, but really you aught to be more concerned about the security vulnerabilities.
grep is your friend.
Yeah my boss would like to keep this version. Is the issue because of the database?
We moved from a hosting to another. Previously it was working fine. I have checked all of the config files and they are all correct.
Nothing to do with the DB error, but you need to find a way to tell your boss she or he is nuts, and is putting the site server and users at risk by not updating.
For my part, I wouldn't want to support someone who refused to take the security of their site and users seriously.
I don't think the version of php you are running is even compatible with the version. I think vanilla 2.1 was compatible with 5.3 maybe 5.4 at a stretch not 5.6
You need to update vanilla becuase you are running an insecure version.
grep is your friend.
Ok thanks, I will update my Vanilla forum now and get back to you
So after I upgraded the forum, I met this bug
I have no idea on how to solve it. Any ideas?
Deactivate the plugin Participated (if you cannot access the dashboard, remove the corresponding line in
Afterwards re-enable it in the dashboard (NOT! by simply changing the config).
Please report back if that has solved your problem.
Thanks for your help but still no luck.
Here is the screenshot of my conf file
After I cleared my cache and refresh the forum page, the bug is still there.
Please run example.com/utility/structure, there seems to be some problems with your database structure. Normally that should have been fixed on a normal upgrade...
Thank you! That fixes it!
