This is another one of those super-long user-names that causes trouble on older versions of YaBB (that and it has weird characters in it.) The name is so long that the pre file was either not written or mis-written.

xnoddyx should be able to get this one taken care of.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

This just happened in our YaBB 2.4 forum earlier today, and I think you're correct, so I appreciate the irony of this discussion. It's actually very helpful.

Before I noticed the corrupted error log, I had deleted a *.pre file directly from the server that I couldn't delete through the Admin Center.

In any case, I simply uploaded a backup of our errorlog.txt file, and that did the trick. I'm guessing I could have uploaded an empty errorlog.txt file, but I don't know if that would have worked.

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

ok when you get a corrupted error log and this is all the prob is then you will see items like
Code
Select All
135xxxx515|135xxxxx15|xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx|There is an invalid character detected in the Username, Displayed Name or Email address field!|login2|||テxx螗些`ラx蜘`ツ : http://www.timbxxxots.com/ コーチxx氓 : http://www.xxxxjp.com/ url=http://www.tixxxxxts.com/]xxxーxxxーツ[/url] [url=http://www.tixxxxots.com/]靴xxxx些`ラxxxx/url] url=http://www.tixxxxxots.com/]テxxxxxバーxxx激安/url] [url=
 


also may have spaces in it between entries just remove all of it save it back and then look for any *.pre that you don't want and you may also find that you have more *.msg files than you do members to clean up after that it should be good to go  Wink

That's very helpful.  Smiley

It just occurred to me that I may actually sometimes back up corrupted files since I make regular backups throughout the day when I can. Oh, the irony!

Then again, I generally keep 4 or 5 incremental backups of our forum in case I ever need to go further back with any given file.

Of course, with your instructions, at least with the file in question, I wouldn't even need a backup.  Wink

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

cool im here to help as for backups in the uk if you hold data that falls under the data protection act you can only keep that data for a maximum of 2 years also for law legal reasoning you have to keep backups of all data that relates to user interaction for 2 years if you do not you are legally liable for that and so on it must also be stored in a secure manner and to add to the data protection act if a uk website has it's server outside of the uk it must also inform all the users of that website if it has personal information stored on it
anyways glad to be of help  Smiley

Hi xnoddyx again,

The errro log has been corrupt again with the following: -

Quote:
Unable to open /websites/LinuxPackage01/ve/lo/nu/velonuts.co.uk/public_html/cgi-bin/yabb2/Members/[/url]____n_[url=http://www.miumiusushopjp.com/].pre
Verbose: No such file or directory


Can't find anywhere to fix this one, can you advise?

Many Thanks

NB I need a quiet bit of time to upgrade, I did try to install spam fruits and got half way there, but it messed up the layouts, so I figured when I get some time I'll just upgrade.
