    To add to this, would suggest if you do change those settings, go to Look / Feel > Template Tools > Rebuild Master Skin Data > Check all the box's and run it. Now return to template tools and this time run 'Recache Skin Sets'
    Note: Do the 'rebuild' first then the 'Recache' afterwards.

    WOuld guess just the path is wrong.
    Go to Settings > General Config > Look closely at the Upload Path (and the Upload URL) , compare carefully with what is suggested in the description with what you have and make changes if needed.

    RSS Output from Pages may not be valid
    Taking a link from here for example, the 'release notes' RSS:

    https://community.invisionpower.com/release-notes/?page=1&d=31&rss=1This tends to throw errors upon importing such as 'XML error: Mismatched tag at line 1'
    As a quick test of this, grab that feed link and try to import it into 34x and you'll get an error similar to that. Checking it with an external validation tool tends to give something like this 'nonnumeric port: ' Mismatched tag at line 1' (InvalidURL; misconfigured server?)'

    hmm.
    I vaguely remember a bug about key length but I though it was an earlier version something like 342 but I could be wrong.
    Question: When you tried other 4x versions , did these fail as well ?
    Its all pointing towards a hosting issue to be honest though, at least as far as I see a key buffer issue maybe in my.ini although I'm not a hosting tech. A tech when they get to your ticket if not already should be able to confirm this and may direct you to your host.

    That's odd. What is at the end of that error please ? The real problem is displayed at the end of that listing usually.

    That is unusual.
    I would suggest trying to find out why 348 is erroring out first though, as if that is causing problems then 4 might do as well even though it seems OK.
    Can you post what errors you are getting ?
    Have you ran the requirements check for both 3x and 4x ?

    You do need to currently do a MyBB > IPB 348 > IPS4 at the moment.
    I understand the converters to do a direct conversion to IPS4 are on their way though as a few have asked that I'm aware of.
    Can I ask why you cannot do a temporary 348 install ? Perhaps if we can sort that for you in the interim you can then do a 348 > 4 upgrade after.

    I've always said if a client is ever unhappy with a ticket response for any reason to simply ask for more details or if that's not applicable ask for it to be escalated to either a supervisor or manager for a further explanation, clarification and / or specifics.
  9. AndyF added a post in a topic Where is this in 4.0? Session expiration (in seconds)   

    IDK if its something a host would be willing / able to change on a shared box, I would guess it may partly depend on them and partly on if its an individual (ie: they can change it per account like a memory limit if needed) or if its global ie all accounts on that box, in which case I would expect them to not want to change it...
  10. AndyF added a post in a topic Where is this in 4.0? Session expiration (in seconds)   

    I'm assuming its a local value that a host could if they wanted to change (on a shared box) if its something global then they may not be willing to do that given it would effect other accounts.
    As a compromise, what about installing the third party 'Members Online Today' ? , and using that instead ? at least that way you'll show a bit more 'activity' if nothing else.

    You *might* be able to do a php_value in .htaccess or a local php.ini file, depending on your host. I'd ask them the best way to increase it. Think of it like asking to increase your memory limit etc, as its just a php value after all.

    One way around this would be a front end block that only shows to admins and only if the version running < the latest. I guess I'm thinking like a sidebar block or something.

    There's no ETA on it > https://community.invisionpower.com/release-notes/4010-r18/
    Suggest ticket to see if you can get a patch, it does seem unlikely but as I say its worth asking...
  14. AndyF added a comment Class 'IPS\nexus\Purchase\LicenseKey\Mdfive' not found   

    Would probably suggest you submit (or re-open if you can) a ticket you had about this issue. Do not forget to include a link to this bug report in it.
    IDK if they can assist you but there is absolutely no harm in asking in a ticket...
  15. AndyF added a post in a topic 4.0.8.1 - Where list of members?   

    I think it could be even easier than writing an app for it. A simple hook to add the appropriate link (as posted above) into the bar so it sits alongside the others as it did previously.
    As said a good thing for an MP submission. I guess said link could also be 'fed' to search bots if required too.
