Topic: unable to edit posts

I am using punBB with SQLIte, and the server may be a tad slow but currently I am unable save any edits to posts. The same edit file works fine with my local development copy of punBB but that utilises mySQL.

I get to edit.php, I can edit the post and preview it, but I am unable to update the database. The page just goes 'blank', as if it has timed out.(which I know is a possibility)



As I know debug mode is likely to be suggested... can it be enabled just for the one script? or just for admin/moderator scripts? (or even just when an admin is logged in?)

It looks like it's an SQLite issue, although I haven't found other references to it

Re: unable to edit posts

hmmm, I am going to test a few things to see if I can narrow the problem down. There should be no reason why SQLite is causing a problem! *sigh*

Re: unable to edit posts

Ok narrowed it down to the following section:

if ($can_edit_subject)
        {
            // Update the topic and any redirect topics
            $db->query('UPDATE '.$db->prefix.'topics SET subject=\''.$db->escape($subject).'\' WHERE id='.$cur_post['tid'].' OR moved_to='.$cur_post['tid']) or error('Unable to update topic', __FILE__, __LINE__, $db->error());

            // We changed the subject, so we need to take that into account when we update the search words
            update_search_index('edit', $id, $message, $subject);
        }
        else
            update_search_index('edit', $id, $message);

Could it simply be a time out issue?

Re: unable to edit posts

so after adding in set_time_limit(99999999); before the code above, I managed to grab the debug info from the redirect page and this gives me:

Which seems fast enough, but it takes almost 10 seconds to get to that page!
