Please send all of the error messages to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sometimes the error message you see is caused by a whole chain of events.

April 6, 2017 at 5:46 am #786 MarkyVParticipant For anyone else who runs into this – my host is 1&1 – their support for mySQLi is flakey which is what causes this problem. My current workaround is to force mySQL to be used with an addition on line 35 of i_pal_wordpress.php in the plugin directory under includes/general : $this->use_mysqli = false; I suspect Brian will update this thread when a better solution is found. Thanks Brian for your help on this 🙂 Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
