Hello,

I am using Advanced Guestbook 2.3.1. I have not been able to login to Guestbook Admin since my new hosting company transferred my guestbook from my old host.

Today I tried using Carbonize's reset.php (reset_beta) to no avail. This is the error I receive after running "reset.php": "There was a problem changing the username and password. Table 'alumni_agbook1._auth' doesn't exist".

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks.

Well for a start this would of been better off posted in the forum you got it from. Anyway try this updated version. I forgot to include Advanced Guestbook support when I last updated the beta. You really should update your version of the guestbook to the latest version available from this site though.

Carbonize,

The updated admin reset worked perfectly. Thank you.

I noticed that since transferring my GB from the old host to the new host there have been no new posts to the guestbook...not even spammers. I just tried a "test" post and received the following error:

"The Image Verication code you supplied is incorrect. Please enter the 8 characters that appear in the image."

I know the code I entered was correct. It simply rejects it as incorrect. Any ideas as to what the problem is? Here is the URL to my GB:

http://sperryalumni.org/guestbook/addentry.php

Thanks.

Is that the custom captcha mod I wrote years ago?

It might be. I read and use a lot of your things. I have been using this particular captcha for quite some time. I still receive a lot of spam posts though.

How can I determine whether it's your captcha?

Thanks.

The code in "verify.php" in my GB begins with the following:

"Change the following 8 numbers. You can use any number between 2 and 32. These are the characters to be used in authentication. Don't leave the default values!"

Does this help in identifying it?

Did you copy the files directly from your old server?

Carbonize,

I am not sure how the transfer of the guestbook was accomplished...my new hosting company made the transfer for me. Sorry.

Would it be possible for you to send me a copy of your guestbook files but not the public nor tmp folders ?

Are you referring to the GB files in the guestbook/admin folder i.e. config.inc, footer.inc, panel_edit.inc etc.? Or something else?

I have a cpanel and phpMyAdmin.

Don't think I need the contents of the admin folder neither. Just the files in the root of the guestbook folder, the templates and the lib folder as O can see how the code works as I can't find a copy of the modding instructions anywhere.

I have downloaded the templates and the lib folders. Where would you like me to send them?

Thanks
