There are a dozen threads showing up as read and the times make sense. I already checked the server clock and it is set correctly. I also did a new post, and the time of the post was correct. If it helps you, I can send you the link of the forum together with some demo login data.

Yours Frank

There is another thing, that might help. I just checked: All Threads older than Oktober 18th are marked as read, all newer threads are marked as unread. That is aproximately the 90 days setting you were talking about earlier.

I'm beginning to wonder if the issue has to do with some quirk with Perl 14 and YaBB 2.4. - That the old messages show as read makes sense - the program just reads the current time and compares it to the age of the post. There's no writing to files. I'm going to be away for the weekend, but I'll install ActivePerl 14 as soon as I can and check out why the .log files are not being properly written to. And that's happening in a sub routine called dumplog. (There's also one called undumplog that handles removing the information when something is marked unread.)

All the javascripts do is turn over the graphics.

You can PM the login info.

Ok you can consider this case closed. I still don't know what was wrong initially, I just testwise did the same migration to another server with the same settings and perl-version. There was no Problem at all so I assumed the migration must have gone wrong. I therefore did the migration again to the server, this time manually not using the plesk migration manager and now the forum works fine. Thank you all for your help and effort. I am sorry I caused you trouble. As I said I still dont know what went wrong and it is pretty odd, that the only problem that occured was this read/unread problem.

Thanks again

yours Frank

a server migration can make some problems if user permissions are not setup correctly on the new server

user permissions owner permissions good to see that you are up and running agen  Wink

Glad it's sorted out.

(I did find one complaint online where Perl14 miswrote things due to some under-reported deprecated code. But if that were the case, then it would still be happening.)
