blank accounts ?

Monday 21 February 2005 5:49:12 pm - 29 replies

I am receiving some admin emails notifying about BLANK ACCOUNTS.
It seems that it happens randomly.
Some users get normal accounts and others not.
Actually, there are blank accounts at the admin users management, too.
Why is this happening?
How could I correct this?
Ezpublish 3.5.0 is the version.

I've found a solution that permits to send the session id in the URL. I changed some php parameters for this specific site by adding the following lines in a .htaccess file at the root of the site :
php_value session.use_cookies 0
php_value session.use_trans_sid 1
php_value url_rewriter.tags a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=

I still have problem with login for these browsers but I open a new topic since I believed that the subject has changed :

Thanks for all,

I just upgraded to ezpublish 3.6.0 and it also have this strange behaviour.
Some user accounts are created blank.
What can I do?

Check that you have absolutely no errors and warnings in your templates. If this is the case and the problem persists check if apache crashes on you during registration, if so we are probably dealing with the reference bug in PHP (which is fixed in PHP 4.4). If none of this helps, you have found a bug that should be reported.

As templates are clean, apache runs smoothly, and errors seem random, I guess it is the php reference bug.
My hosting uses php 4.3.4.
Please, is it really this bug that cause the problem?
I will have to convince the hosting to upgrade the package and need strong arguments.

I'm sure your hosting company will be very understanding as to why eZ publish requires the upgrade to php 4.4

Please, be patient as 4.4 has not yet been officially released. Only the first Release Candidate 1 has been released. Expect rc2 / beta releases before the official release. I don't know what timeline is for the official release, perhaps someone from that community can say with more certainty.

More Information on this subject is available from:

The best way to find out if it is really the reference problem is to install your site on a different computer for testing. If the problem magically disappears (even with PHP 4.3.x) you are definitely experiencing the reference problem. If it doesn't, try upgrading to PHP 4.4 when it is out. If the problem goes away, the reference problem was causing the trouble.

If none of this helps, then it is a bug of some kind.
How often are you experiencing this?

I was excited to read today that Derick has announced php 4.4RC1 information and a 4.4 (estimated) schedule for stable release!


FYI, Paul F. says it may not be quite stable yet and may cause other problems confused.gif Emoticon

I've got the same problem in 3.8.1.

Sometimes I receive a mail of a new registered user. A blank account is generated.
As long as I toouch nothing the site runs OK, but after I deleted the blank accounts (there where 2 blank guest accounts) I'm getting problems with updating content.
After a little while it seems to go in a loop. Everything points to the mysql database.

My guess now is that the deletion of the blank accounts causes the database to go in a corrupt status.

Problem is that my webhost suspends my account when it happens and I cann't do anything about it...

same problem in Version: 3.8.3
my sites database crashed 3 times last week with this error.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: pma_reloadnavigation() in /usr/local/apache1/htdocs/phpMyAdmin-2.6.3/ on line 133

i talked to my host about it, see convo below:

Paul S.: Presently we have set max limit(no of requests) on our server as 50000 per hour.
Paul S.: Your database user is crossing the max question limit.

Paul S.: You can solve it by recreating your database user.

Paul S.: We do not have the resources to assist with web design or web programming.
Paul S.: Please contact a web designer or programmer for additional assistance.

now last week i was getting blank user registerations, emails sent to me:

A new user has registered.

Account information.

Link to user information:

<b> so i deleted them</b>

Object is unavailable

The object you requested is not currently available.

Possible reasons for this are:

* The id or name of the object was misspelled, try changing it.
* The object is no longer available on the site.

<b>i know the last time the DB crashed i just deleted dupelcate and blank registrations</b>
i have no idea what is causing this to happen. but my system is:

Version: 3.8.3 (3.8.3)
SVN revision: 16460
Extensions: ezdhtml

operating system

mysql version
mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.24

perl version
perl, v5.8.3

php version
PHP 4.4.1
Extensions: xslt, xmlrpc, xml, wddx, tokenizer, standard, sockets, session, pspell, posix, pcre, overload, mysql, ming, mhash, mcrypt, mbstring, imap, iconv, gettext, gd, ftp, exif, domxml, curl, ctype, calendar, bz2, bcmath, zlib, openssl, apache, Zend Optimizer
Miscellaneous: Safe mode is off.
Basedir restriction is off.
Global variable registration is on.
File uploading is enabled.
Maximum size of post data (text and files) is 8M.
Script memory limit is Unlimited.
Maximum execution time is 30 seconds.

i guess this is a bug and a major one if it crashes the DB
