Description Coelhu 2013-03-05 04:39:32 PST
When I install PHP Version: 5.3.8-0.39.1 on Linux SUSE Enterprise postgre gives this error when accessing the page:

DB Error: ERROR: value too long for type character varying(40)

And psql log adds this entry every time I try to access the page:

2013-02-14 11:20:58 BRST ojs ojs ERROR: value too long for type character varying(40)
2013-02-14 11:20:58 BRST ojs ojs STATEMENT: INSERT INTO sessions
(session_id, ip_address, user_agent, created, last_used, remember, data, acting_as)
( $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8)

I'm using ojs-2.3.8 with PHP version 5.2.14- on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64) VERSION = 11 PATCHLEVEL = 2 on Linux 3.0.51-0.7.9-default #1 SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux

I need to install >PHP5.3 because security updates.

Hi Coelhu,

This sounds like a setting change when you upgraded PHP, not a specific issue with OJS.  Can you report on the differences between these two php.ini settings for your two PHP versions:


If your PHP 5.3 settings are different, try setting them to the same ones as your PHP 5.2 settings and see if the problem persists.

Closing for lack of response/lack of replication.
