Re: Database problem when updating PHP from 5.4 to 5.5

Well, all I see is the same error message in the browser, i.e. "serendipity error: unable to connect to database - exiting". What would be the result if I set $serendipity['production']=false? If possible I would like to avoid taking the blog offline since there is a lot of traffic on it throughout ...

Re: Database problem when updating PHP from 5.4 to 5.5

Hi Garvin, thanks for your reply. I had already tried that but to no avail. Setting the database to mysqli makes the blog unavailable at all. I have currently set PHP to version 5.5 for the domain http://www.schimanke.org and to version 5.4 for the domain http://www.schimanke.com . While the latter ...

Notification before being logged out automatically

Hi there, since updating to s9y 2 it happens very often that I get logged out automatically during writing a post. This is extremely annoying despite the auto-save feature because I have to start over writing huge parts of the post. Is there any chance that we can get a little notification or warnin...

Re: Database problem when updating PHP from 5.4 to 5.5

Sorry I forgot to mention that. I already tried it but that also did not do the trick. I needed to change the serendipity_config_local.inc.php afterwards via FTP to get the blog working again.

Re: Database problem when updating PHP from 5.4 to 5.5

Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately that didn't solve the problem. However, I found a hint on the 1&1 website, which states that MySQL is no longer supported by PHP 5.5. Instead users should use the following code for MySQLi. mysqli.php <?php $host_name = "localhost"; $database = "db480577850"; ...

Database problem when updating PHP from 5.4 to 5.5

Hi, I'm currently running s9y 2.0.3 with PHP 5.4.45 on a 1&1 Managed Server, which works perfectly fine. However, when I try to change the PHP version to 5.5 I suddenly get the following error: serendipity error: unable to connect to database - exiting. Changing back to PHP 5.4 makes the blog workin...

Re: Regexep Plugin

Okay, I recently ran into another problem. Is it possible to extend the Regexep Plugin to not only handle the text within the comments feld but also the text entered into the name field?

Regexep Plugin

Hi! I hope somebody can help me with a question regarding an expression within the Regexp Plugin. I need to replace a string like \ud83d\ude0a\ud83d\ude0a\ud83d\ude0a This basically an ASCII representation of emojis which do not get interpreted. I have played around a little with the plugin and ende...

Re: How to protect s9y from mySQL sleep injections

Okay, thanks again!
I will talk to my provider and see if they can do anything for me.

Updating to s9y 2.0.2 will be my next step anyway. :-)

How to protect s9y from mySQL sleep injections

Hi everybody, since last weekend my blog is under attackt from some servers in China. Specifically they call the URL of some older posts and add a SQL sleep injection to it which causes my blog to become offline after some time with the database reporting "max_user_connections". Is there anything I ...
