  1. Hi Jason, I'm sure if you posted this question in the SMF Forums you would get a quicker response. I just had a look and there is a thread there that is similar to your problem and someone posted a patch to upgrade the database. Here is a link to the thread I'm referring, but the file attached is not the one you want. At least I don't think it is.



    Thanks Bruce,

    I've been searching there for answers, and this may be a bit embarrassing to admit here, but most of what I've found has been a bit over my head :wallbash:


    Seriously it took me a week to figure out I needed to redownload upgrade.php and the sql update files and rerun them from my browser. Having gotten so used to Fantastico handling everything for me, I've gotten more than a bit rusty in the tech problem-solving arena.


    Thanks for the link and advice though, I just registered over there and will see if I can get some n00b help form them as well :)




  2. Hi everyone,

    I'm a teacher, and use SMF forums in my class that I host with TCH :unsure:

    I ran an SMF upgrade, but I can't get a good upgrade on the SQL database backing each of my class forums. I'm definitely NOT a SQL master user, in fact it has been so worry free for the last three years I don't even know where to start in getting to the root of this issues. To make matters worse, I need my students in these forums like last week...


    When I run update.php to get the indexes and database inline with the forums I get:

    Updating Settings.php... Successful.

    Updating and creating indexes... Unsuccessful!

    This query:


    ALTER TABLE smf_smileys



    Caused the error:


    You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'LENGTH(code) DESC' at line 2


    And the error I keep getting on the front end of the SMF forums is:

    Unknown column 'a.file_hash' in 'field list'

    File: /home/***/public_html/aboforums/Sources/Display.php

    Line: 711


    Note: It appears that your database may require an upgrade. Your forum's files are currently at version SMF 1.1.10, while your database is at version 1.1.2. The above error might possibly go away if you execute the latest version of upgrade.php.


    Any help would be appreciated!



  3. Good morning everyone, and happy holidays.

    I need some help accessing cPanel for the first time on a new hosting package. My church is moving from a blogger site to a *real* website and they've asked me to help out getting everything rolling.


    I need to get into the account ot start FTPing some site files, setup e-mail accounts, and get the new site and content up and running. Unfortunately the welcome e-mail didn't come to me and the pastor who set-up the account did not keep the e-mail :)


    I have not been able to connect with the information he did forward to me:


    > New Hosting at Total Choice:


    > Domain....: http://www.calvarybaptistlhc.com

    > Package...: Silver Hosting

    > DNS:

    > dns3.totalchoicehosting.com

    > dns4.totalchoicehosting.com


    I know that the domain is still redirecting to the old blogger site. How can I get the server names or IP addresses for the account so I can get into cPanel? I have the user name and password already.


    Thanks in advance!

  4. Awesome, thanks guys! I didn't think this was help ticket worthy, I'm glad it is :)


    I've tried it in Opera, Safari, and the latest Firefox... No dice. I don't really know about page accelerators, but I know I haven;t installed anything like that. So if it isn't built in I don't have one...


    Thanks again!


  5. Well...

    Logging into my Horde webmail through cPanel seems to be impossible right now ;)


    Everything is cool until the "what language do you want" screen, and when I clink the login button the page flashes and ends up back at that language selection page. The address goes from the login.php to the index and back to the login.php.


    I have absolutely no idea how to trouble shoot or fix this, and help out there for me? Please?




  6. So, things over at Circa 1973 are shaping up... I have WordPress installed and running both of my blogs.


    The installs were a snap, and other than an errant keystroke killing one of my databases in cPanel, they've been running perfectly here on TCH (as expected)



    Now it's time to sort out a Gallery install, import a slew of pics, and concentrate on finishing the homepage design, and getting my blogs back to looking good....


    It never ends :)

  7. Okay folks, I have most of my front page done, so now it's time to tackle moving my blog over here from Typepad.


    I've decided to give WordPress a try. Thing is, I'm a complete noob when it comes to this stuff... I did a search, but didn't see any posts here about doing installs. So, why don't we create one?




    Where do I start, particularly, how do I set up where to send teh WP files to so my blog gets published at http://www.circa1973.net/bossanova?


    Any help is greatly appreciated!

  8. I still toss a rant in there every now and then.  :thumbup1:





    Right on, me too. I found that my readership went up quite a bit after I stopped getting all Maddox on everything though.


    But every now and again something gets under my skin enough and it's nice to have my blog to let it out.


    One of the other things I like about my blog is that it's a place where anyone can catch up with me... recently a friend from high school found me via my blog. Totally random.

  9. For me it's a way to VENT!  :lol2:



    That's definitely part of it for me, but there is more to it than just venting when it comes to my blog. I'd say it's 20% vanity, 30% catharsis, and 50% community.

    I started out just ranting and venting about things, but it's evolved and changed over the years. Now I write a little bit about everything.

    Blogging is also very community oriented; I have quite a few blogs I read everyday, and have made some real friends through blogging.


    Feel free to check out my blog over at Typepad, which is moving over here soon.

    I have a pretty extensive blogroll (links column) with some real quality bloggers that are worth perusing as well.

  10. Hi,

    First of all, Welcome to your extended family :)


    Thanks! I've heard a lot of good things about TCH, that's why I came here...


    (snip)you shall have received a welcome email containing intructions on how to upload to your account. What you can do is to upload all to your new account as instructed in this email. The only thing you can not use on your account should be the webmail since as I understand your domain are not pointing to the TCH-servers (but I can be wrong on this one).


    I haven't received an e-mail yet, but I'm sure it's pending... thanks for the heads up!

    I saw in another thread that I'll get a temp url as well, so that should get things rolling.




  11. What you can do is transfer your domain to TCH for $10.95, which includes a 1-year extension. You will receive the same benefits you would at yahoo plus the ability to Lock your Domains.


    You also need to keep the take into account the following:

    You need to start your transfer at least 10 days before your domain registration expires or the transfer may not be successful. If your domain name expires during the transfer process, we cannot complete it.


    Also note that ICANN regulations prohibit transferring a domain name that has been registered or previously transferred within the last 60 days.



    Hey everyone...


    I also made the mistake of registering my domain with Yahoo. But if I understand what TCH Dick says here, once I'm out of the 60 day "probation" period I should be able to request the transfer through TCH right?


    What I'm wondering as well though is how can I get started with my TCH (that I bought yesterday) while I'm waiting to (hopefully) transfer my domain?
