Hi Steve,

Thanks for the report.  Can you provide a bit more details about what exactly is happening?  I wasn't totally clear from your post.  Thanks!

Hi Dave,

Sure, sorry about that. If you tick the "hide php errors" checkbox on and click save the security tip still shows for it. If you refresh or hit save again it goes away. Then if you uncheck the "hide php errors" checkbox and click save the security tip won't show. If you refresh or hit save again it does show.



Error on Category Menu?

By hiroko - November 11, 2020


I might be missing something, but I have a list field that I have been doing the same thing in older versions that don't seem to work now.

I'm using "Get options from MYSQL query" and when I use the WHERE query, I get "There was an error sending the request! (403 error)" and cannot save.

SELECT num, name
FROM `<?php echo $TABLE_PREFIX ?>json_ld_properties`
WHERE markup_type = '<?php echo $ESCAPED_FILTER_VALUE;?>type2'

When I get rid of the WHERE, it works.

Is there any changes I should make?

Thanks in advance,


Error on Category Menu?

I finally found out why my "Get options from MYSQL query" setting couldn't be saved.

The server had a WAF setting (Web Application Firewall) that detects access to SQL statements. I turned it off, and I was able to save.

There was also a WAF setting that detects 'kill, ftp, mail, ping, ls' commands that will case 501 error on saving record for Newsletter Builder.

Sorry if I took your time. 

In case someone has the same problem, you might want to check the server settings.

Hi Guys, 

The MariaDB error can safely be ignored for now.  We're going to update that for the next release.  It's because the MySQL and MariaDB version numbers don't match up.

You can comment out that error for now if needed or just ignore it.  Let me know if you need a patch and I'll point you to the file and line.

Thanks Dave!

Which file and line? 

By pault - November 30, 2020

I've just updated a site from v3.53 to v3.54.  It has background tasks running, set to run every minutes.

I've noticed that each time it runs, it's changing the 'localhost' value in settings.dat.php to be '' (see line 56 of database_functions.php) which breaks the connection on this site.  I'm not sure why isn't working on the server but I've had to comment this line out to prevent it from breaking as soon as I change the setting back.

Is there a reason why it's trying to update 'localhost' to ''?

Thanks, Paul.

Hi Paul, 

Yea, it was a workaround to fix an issue where some linux servers couldn't connect to mysql with ssl enabled with localhost as the hostname.  

When you ping localhost on your server what IP is it returning?
