XF 1.5 member profile: I cannot connect to the database.


Well-known member

I upgraded from 1.57 to 1.58 successfully, but have problems if I want to see a members profile. No matter which one. If I click on the name, the pop-up window appears. But when I click there on "profile page", I get the error:

I cannot connect to the database.

I repaired already the search table and ran all the rebuild chaches jobs. No improvement. I checked also the permissions.

What else could be the reason for this?

If that's the actual text of the error, that's not a message that's found in XenForo.

o.k., I disabled all addons in library/config.php with

$config['enableListeners'] = false;

and the error disappears. So it is obvioulsy caused by and addon....

update. The reason was the addon for reviewpost from photopost. Once disabled the error disappeared.

Strangely I have the same addon on another XF 1.58 installation and there is no issue at all.
