Registration Reload Error: Lets Get This Solved
So I have been browsing through every thread related to the subject, and have seen very little solutions and very few lucky folks who had the problem find a solution. I’ve been working very hard to root out the problem so please bear with me, I need assistance. A solution to this problem would help a LOT of BP users.
My problem: (using WP 3.5 / BP 1.6.2) Registration is broken on random browsers, seems to come to life for some people under very random circumstances. Still 50+% of my potential users are submitting their info and the register page just simply reloads with no error.
-Disable all plugins except buddypress: No luck
-Use BP default theme, with fresh buddypress install: on MY computer, IE will suddenly be able to register, but not firefox, and still every other person to try to register fails.
-htaccess is unaltered from its original state
-”allow users to register” is checked
-no form of captcha, or custom registration page is being used.
On a hunch, I created a locally hosted test server and downloaded a backup of my WEBSITE files (not the SQL database). I got the website to function 100% as it currently does (without my users, I’m not sure how to export/import BP users and profiles). Lo and behold, under the exact same circumstances I can register under every browser under the sun, on multiple PCs on my local network.
This tells me there is something wrong with my database (and obviously the other users reporting the same problem — if its not your plugins or theme, its a db issue).
So now my question, how can I go about squeezing the junk out of my database that could be causing this (if anybody agrees that I’m right). Over the months I have used and removed well over 100 plugins that I’m sure have left their traces all over the database. Something in there must be causing the problem.
If I can’t root out the error, would it be possible to create an entirely new database and only import ALL user data (name, email, password, avatars, activity stream posts, etc)… I don’t want to annoy my users by having them log in to see they have lost any data. If this is possible then I would have my current up to date website as it is, without a single papertrail of plugins that are long since deleted.
What do you guys think? I realize this is a very rough issue so any help is greatly appreciated. I’ve been tinkering for days trying to figure this out, many of us are losing users because of this.
