I haven't made any changes to my website or server or database in recent months, but just a few days ago I started getting this error ONLY ON DESKTOP. The error happens when I click on a discussion thread on desktop. The Vanilla forum appears to fine in all other areas on desktop including the forum dashboard, it's only when a discussion thread is clicked. On mobile, everything still works fine. Here is the error message:
I would appreciate any help in debugging this mystery. Thank you!
I was able to fix my own issue in case anybody else ever encounters this. I had to run the following code in mysql:
SET GLOBAL sql_mode=(SELECT REPLACE(@@sql_mode,'ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY',''));
and viola, the fatal error in php.trigger_error() was fixed! the sql_mode=only_full_group_by was what tipped me off to this SO post: https://stackoverflow.com/a/36033983/3089840
