The forum started throwing bizarre time-out and other error issues after I set everything to no compression.  I am now certain this is NOT an issue with YaBB but with the hosting service as my other forum on a different server is acting just fine after the upgrade.

change this in Variables/Settings.pl

Set it to 0 and you can access to your forum again. Smiley


   Compression is used within the YaBB Forum for Backup and output.  Setting either to a format not supported will cause errors and possibly the inability to access the forum.  See attached images of where these settings are.
  Note: on the Admin screen, the CheckModule displays the installation or non installation of modules.

Well, it seems the tech heads are still playing and breaking things - it's them, not YaBB.  Angry

Okay - venting here must have magic because everything seems okay for the time being - no doubt my freaking expletive deleted hosting service tech heads decided to play with something.

We need a steam coming out of ears Smilie.

Okay, now I'm not getting the unsupported compression error message, but at the bottom of every page is:

Quote:
OK

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, cgiadmin@yourhostingaccount.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


Now, everything above this is correct and nothing is showing in either the cgi-bin error logs OR the server logs. And sometimes - not always, the page tries to load twice.
Quote:
<img src=
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate
Pragma: no-cache

The problem of the error warning is also showing up in the Admin main page.

(The site in question is http://www.bigapricot.org/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl)

From installed modules:

Compress::Bzip2 - is not loaded,
Compress::Zlib   Installed
Archive::Tar         Installed
Archive::Zip      Installed

I did set it to 0 - so far so good. (The odd thing is I have another board on the same hosting service and I'm had absolutely no problems with that one.)

ACK - unsupported compression issue

This has been coming and going ever since I upgraded from 2.4 to 2.5 yesterday -

Quote:
Content Encoding Error

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

    *   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

      
      


I don't think this is an actual YaBB issue, but I'd like to confirm that no one else has had this issue before I yell at my host.
