Non-static method errors

Hello -- I have been trying to solve a problem for a while that our Serendipity website is not loading at http://eartharchitecture.org/ (See previous forum listing for history.) At this point, I believe we've solved the database issue but I am now getting new errors. Several examples are listed belo...

Re: Error -- serendipity error: unable to connect to databas

This is what I'm seeing at that location. I previously uploaded a new version of this file. Comparing the code there appeared to be no difference. So is it access to the database that might be the issue? $serendipity['dbConn'] = $function( sprintf( '%sdbname=%s user=%s password=%s', "$host$port", $s...

Re: Error -- serendipity error: unable to connect to databas

Morning, I have executed all your suggestions. The php upgrade cleared the database error but the site still will not load. I am not familiar with this software and in looking for the index location just now did not find anything on the site that looked like it. I saw a number of temporary index fil...

Hi -- I've updated the site to php 5.6. It did something as I am no longer getting the database error but still cannot connect. I'm now getting this 500 error: www.eartharchitecture.org is currently unable to handle this request but the database error seems to be cleared. I checked the serendipity_c...

Re: Error -- serendipity error: unable to connect to databas

Hi Gentlemen,

Actually the site is running php 5.4. It was the Portege sql app that is current. So I will upgrade to 5.6 and see if that fixes the problem.

I'll get back to you.

Re: Error -- serendipity error: unable to connect to databas

Hi --

OK, I'll check these today but I agree with you that there may have been an upgrade of the server software, or a hack. However the directories are not showing any malware activity.

How risky is it to do an upgrade first to see if that fixes it?

Thank you,
Marge

OK -- Thanks I will check that. And yes, I agree they need an update once we get this fixed.

Re: Error -- serendipity error: unable to connect to databas

Hi -- Here's what we have running: Serendipity version: 1.5.1 (I'm looking at the "current version" file which I assume is it.) It looks like it was installed in 2012. PHP: 5.4.43 PostgreSQL 8.4.20 My understanding is there have been no changes in the last few months from the user side. Clearly noth...
