Um - just had a brainstorm. Check the user cookies on your computer and clear out all the ones belonging to your forum. The cookies may be getting corrupted and feeding bad info to YaBB.



Ok Done, but... why would this happen to dozens of users at the same time, all seeing the same error message (the same *.pre file)?

None of those mods should be trying to call a .pre file. What my best guess is as to what's  happening, Load.pl is trying to load information from a *.pre file despite the fact that you are logged in and your information should already be loaded. This indicates to me that something has corrupted the LoadUser subroutine in Load.pl

And from what I can tell, that subroutine is also the only place that particular error call can even be called.

What should be happening: Yabb gets login information or reads the user cookie, checks the inputted name against the memberinfo.txt file to make sure it's actually a user name, then looks for the *.vars file, then the *.pre file and then the *.wait file to find the user info.

Um - just had a brainstorm. Check the user cookies on your computer and clear out all the ones belonging to your forum. The cookies may be getting corrupted and feeding bad info to YaBB.

What I'm now trying to get my head around is why, when you're already logged in, it's even trying to access a .pre file.

Edited:
I know you have YaMMs loaded - what other mods are loaded?

I guess I should have said the boards are not accessible, I can get into the admin section, User CP and view the members list by using the tabs.

This is a screen shot from earlier this month

The forum locks up when you are trying to log in to the forum?

The forum locks up and displays the error. Then I create the file using the same name as displayed in the error such as "12.345.pre" and place it in the members directory and we gain access to the forum again. On bad days I've had to do this 8-9 times a day. I also have two others with admin rights and when they see the error they register and approve a user then the problem clears up. (they then delete the user)

I see an entry in the error log when the error occurs and the members that tried to access the forum. There have been a few times when a member gets the error and I don't.

There have been a couple times when the registration log was corrupt, but that hasn't happen for a few days.

Since yesterday I have everything unchecked in the Referral Security

Dumb question - are these errors showing up in your RegistrationLog or just in your error log? If it's just in your error log, it could well be spammers trying to 'validate' their bogus registration directly by putting bad info into a query string. This is one of the reasons to make sure that registrations only come from your form in your domain.

I already started. Right now I'm in the process on coping then moving directories to a test site. I'm sure I'll have some questions down the road.

I'm still wondering a bit about server space. 'Resources" usually just means CPU and memory usage.

I was just averaging everything, these are the current stats from my cPanel

6,337.76/40,000 MB used/allotted drive space
32,493.48/400,000 MB used/allotted bandwidth

CPU Usage      35% / 100%

And you can down load the newest version of 2.5.2 (2.5.22) Here

The bug fixes has already been installed.

Not sure how YaMMs will interact with things - make sure you back up your membership files and install YaMMs before letting anybody onto the new installation.

I see I have to install the mods in a particular order, I wasn't aware of that.

some times you don't need to it all depends on what parts of the yabb code are being edited and the mods making that edit it is as you don't need to use a live forum to test you can test as much as you want to and not have to worry about it
if I can get some free time and if you have not started on it I will setup a test 2.5.2 and try the mods in your list in it and see how that works out and will post back here for you.

I'm now believing this could be a permissions issue. Check to see if the permissions for your Members folder is set at 755. Beyond that, check to see that permissions for your members are set at 644 (may need to be set at 666).

That was the very first thing I checked - all is good

Also, and I think Dandello has already mentioned this, but it's possible you're running out of room on your server, which means YaBB isn't able to fully write all that's needed when somebody registers.

That's the second thing I checked - I'm using less than 20% of all my resources

If you're running out of space on your server, it's probably because of automated backups your host is doing for you. Check this through FTP, and delete those older backups after you've saved them locally if you want them saved.
