Solved Cases
Mandrill certainly is a good solution for transactional emails.

If using your local mail server, an "email flood" will get your IP blacklisted again with certain providers.

If using a 3rd party SMTP solution, an "email flood" can become quite costly if not stopped in time and lead to exclusion from the particular service.

To avoid this one step is to make sure your site does not send too many emails initiated by spam registrations.

Found the solution on my own. Turns out the time zone setting in php.ini got changed during an update resulting in the websites timezone being out of whack.

Are you sure you have rc2? I believe that would be a release candidate (rc) and not the final release so would probably have some issues that may have been fixed in the final release of 1.6.21. You should download the final version of 1.6.21 or get the upgraded v2 if your host will support it.

The "public.error.404" is the phpFox address representation for the HTTP error 404 Not found.

It means your members are visiting a page that does not exist, therefore, phpFox is registering the 404 error using this internal address (public.error.404).

I recommend you to ask to your members what pages are they visiting, that are returning a message "the page cannot be display" or "the page you are trying to view is not valid".

Hope this helps!

Hey TorontoGuy,

Im afraid this sounds like a problem with your server, when someone is uploading a file to the server .........This file is stored in the server's temporal directory, in your case (and most cases):

Your problem happens exactly at step 4, a file was indeed uploaded but it is no longer available in the /tmp folder.

A potential fix is (if you can) to change the php configuration, and tell him to use another temporal directory, you would change the php value upload_tmp_dir, like this:
upload_tmp_dir = /home/torontoguy/tmp

The actual problem could be that the user that is running the php engine does not have enough permissions to write to the /tmp folder
You could try to circumvent it by using a symlink but the ideal scenario would be to grant permissions to whoever is running php.

Hope it helps

The issue is now resolved... much thanks in pointing us in the right direction.. I am pleased to say that there is now another hosting service able to successfully handle phpfox and it's requirements..

thanks in advance!

It should be easy to remove. I'm not familiarized with the userplane chat plug-in, but I think it is just matter of remove it from the plugins/ folder.
