XF 1.5 Profile post error when moving to new hosting server


I have recently taken out a small cloud server package with 1&1 in the UK with the intention of moving my forum there, before going live I moved a backup of the forum to the new server to test, I have setup the site as a domain alias adding 'test' before the domain name
On the surface of it the site appears fine and seems to function ok, threads can be started/posted and photos & attachments can be posted and downloaded but I get an error when trying to do a profile post
Picture attached of screen error received when posting followed by the server error logged in ACP, is this a validation error as i am running XenForo away from the registered domain or a problem with the new host server or something else, any info/suggestions gratefully received

Please note the test site is no longer online and will redirect to main forum

The only way I can see this happening is down to an add-on, I think. The rest of the code should handle it and throw errors as necessary. Can you confirm this with all add-ons disabled?


Hi, thanks for your reply, you are correct disabling all addons resolved the error - i thought i had already done this but problem resolved now much appreciated
