Fixed DateTime::__construct(): Failed to parse time string


Well-known member
I have many members imported from VB 3.8 whose DOB fields are out of order (such as year is 3453 and month is 45).
When I go directly to that member's profile page, it will show a server error message (and generates a record ACP as well).

Here is what shows on the member profile page
Server Error
DateTime::__construct(): Failed to parse time string (1116-19-82) at position 6 (9): Unexpected character
  1. DateTime->__construct() in XenForo/Model/UserProfile.php at line 27

I've fixed this at the importer stage. This query will fix broken dates:
UPDATE xf_user_profile SET dob_day = 0, dob_month = 0, dob_year = 0 WHERE dob_day > 31 OR dob_month > 12 OR dob_year > 2012 OR (dob_year > 0 AND dob_year < 1900);
