This board is the new home for david63's extensions.

All of the extensions hosted here will need to be treated as a new install as there is no migration from the original ones to these, and furthermore, no support will be given to migrating to any of these extensions from previous versions.


Due to the selfishness of certain board members it has become necessary to apply a limit of how many downloads each member can make before making a donation. Once a donation has been made then you will have unlimited downloads.

I have tried to deactivate all extensions in my forum but I get the same result even though the extension works on my test forum...
I also tried downgrading the php version from 8.2.3 to 8.1.16 with the same results...

If it works on your test board then it would appear that there is some problem with your production board and not this extension.

The last time I had the problem, the conditions were totally identical.
All extensions are the same and worked with phpBB 3.3.9...
I'm not saying that my problem comes from the extension, I'm just looking for ways to solve it.

With phpBB version 3.3.10, when I try to modify as I had done with phpBB version 3.3.9, it is disabled and I am told that the file is missing...
so this solution does not work.

So I reinjected the original PhpBB files but it didn't change much.

All the links in the forum itself work ("memberlist" and "vieuforum")
Only links from the PCA result in a 504 error...

As I have said before I have no idea what you are doing, why you are changing code or why you are having these problems - nobody else has ever reported such problems and the code is standard phpBB code that is in all validated, and some non validated, extensions.

On your own admission there are no problems with the extension on your test board therefore it is not an extension problem but something on your board.

Well, since obviously you don't even want to look for where my problem could come from, although I have already said that I am not questioning the extension, you repeat the same thing all the time and do not bring nothing constructive in this thread, so I'm going to close it and go ask for help elsewhere!

Do you get that ACP error when specific extensions are disabled as well? In other words is it caused by extension/s or by phpbb?

About composer.json.. one wrong edit to that file will cause errors.

I just tried to do the same manipulation as for phpBB 3.3.9 and which had worked but it doesn't work with phpBB 3.3.10, so I put the original file back of course

Well.. there is a possibility, that some file/files are corrupted or maybe even db.
If test site is working and is on the same shared host as production site, then doesn't seem like it's a global issue.

Maybe switching out files/folders with new ones solve it, but i'm not 100% sure.

WinSCP is a good ftp program. The one suggested by phpbb community is not that good.

I mean switch out files like we do with full package update.
If issue is not in files or db, then you may try to search google for 504 and try some suggested fixes.

If it's a pure server related issue that can't be solved by you, then only solution is to contact host as only they have the right tools/permissions to do it.

If you do a fresh (vanilla) install & it has same issue, then you should contact your host.
If issue can't be fixed by methods that are provided by many sites that help to solve 504 error, then it's time to talk to OVH support.

It seems to be server (configuration) related issue or maybe there are some specific server or php errors. If you have access to those error logs, you may take a look, but if it really is connected to server, then only host may solve it.

As you have not provided any new information I find it difficult, if not impossible, to have any other response - however

That changes things.

My guess is that on your production board you. or your hosts, have "allow_url_fopen" disabled

You are using the same extension as previously and there is nothing in the update that would create any problems with this, or other, extensions.

There are no other reports of this behaviour and I cannot recreate it.

As you had this problem previously and it magically disappeared then I would suggest that you apply that same magic again - have you considered that the problem may be with one of the 100+ extensions that you have installed?
I wish you would stop taking me for a fool!
When someone has a problem that you have taken over the development of and on top of making the downloads chargeable, the bare minimum would be to research the problem!
Off, you keep telling me that you can't reproduce the problem but you never provided me with the required server configuration that I had asked you for!!!!

No, I said that the extension works on a local forum, therefore, connected to no server...

Then what does that mean?
Does acp work normally on productions server when extensions are disabled?

I have provided as much information as I can from what you have given me and I cannot do much more unless you are willing to give me full access to your board and server.

Whether some of this is getting lost in translation I don't know but some of the things that you are saying are either contradictory or just don't make sense and then you say

Which would imply that your problem is not extension related.

And I am not sure what this means

How can you test without connecting to a server?

Extension requirements are in the composer.json file (as with all extensions) and anything else is the same as for core phpBB.

One other question - are you using Cloudflare (or similar) which may be causing/contributing to the problem?

Yes the ACP works normally, except for the links of all the deactivated extensions which are displayed only with the language keys, which is normal.

That is not normal at all - do you have a screenshot?

The only place where I would expect to see language keys is in the ACP log.

How about your firewall - is that configured to allow outgoing requests?

Sorry I made a mistake, it's true that the modules are no longer displayed when the extensions are disabled without deleting the data.

Yes since the extension worked with phpBB 3.3.9...
It's since the update to phpBB 3.3.10 that my problem came back...
