Frontend Error after Backup from 2.0.3 to 2.1.1

Post by TerraH » Wed Jan 03, 2018 11:49 pm

Hello everyone,

I´m new to Serendipity and has a few problem with the installation.
My webspace is hosted by Domainfactory and I get the following message if I try to access the frontend of my installation:

"Query failed: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ' "

I don´t know what to do with this information? I can access the backend but not the frontend.

I have installed:
MySQL 5.6.19

Can anyone help me out here?

Thank you very much for your time.
Best regards

Hi Terra!

That indeed sounds bad. To debug the error the easiest thing you could do to get a verbose debug output is to edit your file and set:

Code: Select all

$serendipity['production'] = 'debug';
Then you should see the complete SQL error that you get. It could be that an event plugin is interferring; maybe you installed a plugin that is not up to date? Also the "entyrproperties" plugin uses some advanced SQL code that might create the trouble.

Please tell if that helps, or else we can get some other debugging running.
