My Favorite Error Report

Filed under: MOD Writing, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 11:41 am Comments Off 

Here’s a tip: if you encounter a problem with code that someone else (such as myself) has written, and you write to them asking for help, try to be more descriptive in your error report than this:

On localhost works but not works in linux server.

Localhost: all pages works
Sever linux: none pages works

So basically they’re telling me that the MOD works on their localhost installation, but once they upload it to their linux server “none pages works” which, I guess, is a bit of a problem.

But without my ESP module addon for the PM system, I am unable to determine exactly what the problem is, so I was forced to ask them for a specific issue. So folks, if you have a problem with my code, tell me what it is. If it’s supposed to do X and it does Y instead, tell me that. If it’s supposed to do X and it’s not doing anything, tell me that.

But don’t tell me “it doesn’t work” and expect much help.

Our web site for continued support of phpBB2 reached 100 registered and activated users a few days ago. We also have several thousand posts. 8-) Based on the statistics I collect we have also seen a few days with more than two thousand page views.

We’ve had some interesting discussions that are not strictly limited to phpBB2, so you might want to check us out. ;)
