Help! 2nd Full system crash in two days!

  • 3125432

    hi –

    I am using WordPress MU 2.7.1 and buddypress 1.0.1 and Facebuddy Theme 1.0

    This has now happened twice in two days, where I logout at night and attempt to log on a little later only to see this “blue screen of death” message:

    This user has elected to delete their account and the content is no longer available.

    I have done nothing of the sort. All files are in place.

    I will say that I have elected to delete some lines of code to remove some functions in the core files but they aren’t super critical, in my opinion.

    Remove the log choice from the profile drop down menu

    Remove the edit profile button

    Remove the edit profile sub nav selection

    Remove the blogs from the drop down menu in the search function

    Change the destination and name of the logout in the top bar

    Other items that I have been working with a programmer to implement is a SSO. So he had provided a plugin to an external membership software that works with WordPress MU to register new members by passing their field information. I am wondering if that might also be causing this. That can’t be though because the user records are just written to the database.

    This is really tough. So much work done now twice in personalizing Buddypress.

    Any ideas?

    Oh, one more thing – the files that I have deleted are indeed from the core files: bp-core.php, templatetags, and xprofile kind of thing.

    But the problem is that after I deleted the code lines, I visited the site and checked to make sure it was working so it seemed to be fine. Then I would go back to the dashboard and logout.

    Both crashes have happened after I logged out from the dashboard. No coincidence, I’m sure but still… so vexing.

    Okay, as I’m sure you know, this type of sentence scares all of us who try to offer support. ;)

    The real question is this:

    If you boil everything down to the lowest, common denominator (LCD), does everything work. This means using BuddyPress without any core mods, using the default themes, and not running any other plugins in WPMU except BuddyPress.

    If everything works, then this is an issue caused by something you are doing. If you still have this problem, then you need to talk with your hosting firm or system admin (if you are in a business/institutional setting) because it could have something to do with your server setup (DB server maybe).

    But, if everything works as it should when you’ve distilled the WPMU/BuddyPress install down to the LCD, then it clearly is something you’re doing. It could be your core hacking, the single-sign-on coding, a 3rd-party plugin conflict, any combination of changes. You need to go back to the bare bones foundation and then start adding stuff back, implementing your changes one at a time and throughly test in between each new change.



    Thank you for taking the time to try and help us! This may seem off topic but every person on this board should take a moment to say “Thank You!” to Burt and Jeff and Andy, and the countless others who work to help solve problems.

    This is a shout out to each and all; could you check your db’s using phpadmin or whatever you use to examine your wordpress/buddypress database and tell me what ‘user_status’ setting you see for the admin, typically ID#1?



    On my live site, each and every user account has a user_status of 0.
