Transfer to new server --> alerts/posts are still unread

    I have transferred one my forums from a shared to a dedicated server, and everything is working as it should except for one thing.

    Posts and alerts doesn't clear as read after viewing/reading them. They stay marked as unread.

    How can this be?

    Even if I click "Mark Forums Read", everything stays unread :(

    And clicking "What's New?" gives a 'TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS' error.

    Anyone with a clue here?

    Are you using any caching?

    No, I haven't done any additions to the default config.php file

    I also sense that there must be some cache-problems somewhere, but I'm at loss where to look.

    This is probably a shot in the dark but the problem you describe with the posts not clearing might be time-based since that's usually how they're marked like when you read a thread. Check the server/XF time and see if it's correct, or if it differs from the server you transferred from?

    The time difference should not be any problem (same time, CET)

    Can it be something with the MySQL database? The old server had version 5.1.63 and the new one is 5.5.9.

    Update: a tech guy at the host has told me that they believe it's a MySQL 5.5 issue. On a test server, they were able to eliminate all the problems after just downgrading the database to 5.0.67.

    Are there any known compatibility issues between XenForo 1.1.2 and MySQL 5.5.x?

    XF works fine on MySQL 5.5
