[Fixed] HTTP 500 errors on B-Greek

Some users are encountering 500 errors. Others are not. This seems related to an upgrade from phpBB 3.2.2 to phpBB 3.3.2. See this thread:


Thanks for this @Jonathan.Robie. We haven’t been able to reproduce this error yet, but are looking forward to hearing from folks on the forum who are having this problem so we can help.

Hi CristĂłbal,

I cleared cookies and reproduced the problem on the BGreek forum this morning at 7:59 AM Pacific and sent you and Jonathan email. I reproduced it on both HTTP and HTTPS protocols.


Hi, here is some more information, as requested. Anything else I could try on my end to help resolve this problem?

Hi @scot, I think at this point the next step is for us to coördinate with @Jonathan.Robie on a time to switch which web server(s) within our infrastructure host this forum so we can get near-real-time logs to him. I don’t have a specific timeline tonight, but if you haven’t seen an update here by next Tuesday with a time estimate, please do feel free to ping again.

The site is now working for me with all tested clients.
