    Contact your host about this issue. They have disabled the getmypid() function in PHP.

    Is it important to enable the getmypid() function? Forum works fine except for the requesting the pw part and the error messages appear..

    That function is used as part of the password encryption algorithm. They will have to enable the function in order for you to stop seeing the error.

    My guess is they are being a little too paranoid about security as getmypid() doesn't really do much.

    @shootingtars: I will check what you can use instead of getmypid. I guess it needs some source of random number and use the pid.

    Thanks Dinoboff and sirlancelot.

    I simply removed the error messages and popups. But the forum cant get email nofies or pw requests.
