[Archive] Registration Difficulties


It seems that my restoration of the User Table has caused some unforeseen problems with registration.

After registering, an SQL error occurs and no Account Activation email is sent to the user. If you log in with your unactivated account and go here:
http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/member.php?action=resendactivation you should then receive your Activation Email.

I am not sure what is causing this, but it must have to do with my colossal mess-up with the User Table… sigh The only way to fix this might be a complete roll-back of the database to the December Mishap.

I will do what I can to prevent this course of action.


Update: This issue has been resolved!


I have resolved the issue.

I have also put a bonus question in place to prevent automated sign-ups. The reason for the sudden influx of Spam accounts is due to the Image Verification not working. It requires my server to have the php GD graphics library installed. I will see about getting this done, as it seems to not be installed by default on this new host.
