Topic: Fancy Stop SPAM extension and MySQL/PHP compatibility
I am trying to use Fancy Stop SPAM 188.8.131.52 in official PunBB 1.4.6 running on MySQL.
It works well on my local test server with MySQL 5.7.34 and PHP 7.4.21.
But it does not work on my remote deployment server with MySQL 5.1.73 and PHP 5.3.3.
The site setup including the database is the same on both. The only other extension, Stop spam bots, works well on both.
After I enable the Fancy Stop SPAM extension on the remote site, and browse to another forum page, I get only blank pages in the browser.
– the forum pages are blank even if I enable debugging to see error/MySQL queries (through forum config.php)
- disabling extension hooks through config.php re-activates the forum, but of course the extensions are turned off. I can then disable Fancy Stop SPAM on Admin page and the forum works fines.
- I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Fancy Stop SPAM extension but this has not helped
- using PHP mysql instead of mysqli does not change result
I wonder if the issue is in some SQL-related coding in Fancy Stop SPAM code. Any thought?
