User registration no longer works after upgrading to 1.9.8.3 (Column 'user' cannot be null)

posts: 4 Austria

Hi there,

I have recently upgraded from 1.9.4 to 1.9.8.3. The upgrade went without errors. However, the user registration no longer works. When attemtpting to register a new account, the following error message comes up:

column 'user' cannot be null.

Ideas? Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,

Günter

Since for some reason I cannot post the complete error message (I always end up with an internal server error), attached is a text file with more detailed information.

Did you run the upgrade script from tiki-install.php? (make a backup first)

I ran the tiki_1.8to1.9.sql script again, but it didn't change anything. There were some errors though (duplicate columns, which seems okay, since I've ran the script already).

Any other ideas?

Can you copy/paste any errors as they appear in your http error log file as a result of what you're trying to do?

Unfortunately, not. The software runs on a shared server at our hosting provider, and we don't have access to the error log file (only to the access log file)

FYI, this has been fixed in the 1.9.8.3 CVS tree. There was a missing global.

Similar problem - also registration of new user does not work - ,
but problem type differs:

Now upload 2007-12-09 from sourceforge.net - latest stable version -
. tikiwiki-1.9.8.3.zip --- hence same version like the subject in preceeding messages here.

Uploaded to terra-unika.com/tik/
. (hoster westhost.com , good techn. support + grants SSH)
Uncompacted on the server within SSH, permissions probably all o.k,,
. most features successfully activated as "admin",
. most is tested, apparently most or all is o.k.

Login configured as good as possible (some features not
. explained in detail in the doc's, but probably this
. is not the problem origin
. (REM: Some fields which should have been filled automatically during
. INSTALL, were NOT, like HTTP server and "prefix".)

Registration of new user does not work.
. From the start page as well as from the "admin" section
. exactly same reaction:

After input (good or wrong) and "go" the page is not refreshed.
. The input fields are wiped out into blank state.
. Test it: http://terra-unika.com/tik

Then activation of all .htaccess by the supplied .sh sript.
. No change of behaviour for "new user rgistration".

register-globals are on the server SET OFF, are set to ON within
. main terra-unika.com/.htaccess
. There also PHP error log set to ON, and sent to log file.
. No error registered for login attempts

Both orders added into the TIKIWIKI main .htaccess (ONLY in this one).
. No change to observe in registration behaviour, no PHP errors stated.

Any idea what I should do next?
Primitive personal admin or install error?
Or new or old software problem?

I am having the same problem. Only this is my first instalation it is a bug in the software and it will not allow addition of new users. Pretty serious... solution?
