Default Error when changing settings

After installing, I went to edit the settings and this is the error I was shown:

Quote:
Warning: unserialize() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in [path]/geek/gaz/includes/gaz_class_core.php on line 182

This is the second time I've heard about this error message, but not everyone gets it so ATM I suspect some other add-on is unserializing GAZ datastore and then GAZ cannot, so try temporarily turning off/disabling all other add-ons except GAZ. Do you still get the error message?

What did the first person do? Is there any way to compare what plugins we have? Would VBSEO be a problem with this?

Maybe something in the database? I bought an older newsletter mod from a scammer a while ago...maybe you've heard of him, blogtorank? He posted a lite version of the mod at vb.org and it was 5 dollars to purchase the premium one, so I did. It never worked properly but could that maybe be the problem?

And I've disabled most of my mods and nothing came of it. I left smaller ones enabled like ones made by cybernetec. I disabled vbseo (via vbseocp) and nothing there. So what now?

Is it a problem that I'm using it with 3.7.2 PL2? I haven't upgraded to the newest vb yet but will shortly but the 3.7.x series isn't listed on the requirements nor is the 2.0.2 version of GAZ listed.

The other person edited the following line in the gaz_class_core.php file.

BEFORE MAKING THIS CHANGE, READ THIS THREAD AND DO THE EDIT IN THIS THREAD INSTEAD!!!

From:
Code:
$this->settings = unserialize($this->vb->GAZ_settings);
To:
Code:
$this->settings = $this->vb->GAZ_settings;
But before editing the code, run the following query and let me know the result:
Code:
# add your vB table prefix to the datastore table name if you use a prefix
SELECT unserialize FROM datastore WHERE title = 'GAZ_settings';
If the value that is returned is 1 or 2 then run the following query:
Code:
# add your vB table prefix to the datastore table name if you use a prefix
UPDATE datastore SET unserialize = 0 WHERE title = 'GAZ_settings';

The query result is 0. So I should just edit the code now?

Morgan,

As an FYI, I had to do this tonight. I was running a 4.x flavor of MySQL and now I'm running a 5.x. I ran the query you suggested and the value was 0, so then I made the file edit you showed above and everything works again. I don't know what MySQL versions other people are on, but this could be the cause.
