[SOLVED] table reaches maximum database

9 years 5 months ago #130242 by jakobe75
nothing was ignored except my code questions.
I asked several times for you to check my code as I felt it was wrong to being with.

but you said it looked fine, that was my issue for days..I was using wrongly formatted code.

once my code was corrected it was working again.
but it took me not being satisfied with the answers I was finding on the forum to start searching google.

I would ask questions regarding the errors and really wasnt getting any explanation of them, almost like they werent even being read.


So I did not ignore. I just stopped discussing it as you werent even looking at my code.

If you had been, you would have spotted the issue right away in the first few posts, when I specifically asked if the code was correct...you said it appeared to be correct.


I read the message about the PM
unfortunately I cannot allow access right now.


This issue should be addressed in more detail in the user documentation as it has existed as a nuisance for a few years now.

If the possibility of a workaround exists and has existed for a couple years..why wait till 3 versions later to implement a fix?

With the introduction of CBsubs..the amount of fields a site needs is always growing...and Many users sites will prolly outgrow the stock settings before the new version is released.


You complain that your time could be spent doing other things?

I posted my issues, I asked the questions, it was YOU who wasted your own time not reading what I wrote.

had you read it then you would have said the same thing that you said to the other guy.

"sql:text is the correct usage"

simple as that.


I paid for CBsubs..I paid for many other CB things.
and after I import about 4000+ users today I will be paying again for upgrading a license.

I think this earns me a little support time.
for issues that arent documented in the manual.

I dont like being told that I am pulling you away from other projects.


thanks

I did review your code, but the other user made the issue more prominent. Yes this was my fault for not rereading additionally to ensure it was absolutely correct.

I was aware of this fact after your post before mine informing you to PM credentials so I may fix it for you, but my post for such credentials was completely overlooked; which would've resolved the issue entirely.

Primarily is a communication barrier. We appreciate your dedication and support to the team; for future reference please PM or Email me (from profile) when an issue becomes more pressing or forum support is not reaching an adequate goal so we can "take things to the next level".

Please review my previous post for other field changes. If you still wish me to make these changes for you then please do PM the credentials asked for earlier.

I too have a similar issue so I read the thread then made the changes
Text Fields
FROM: sql:varchar(255)
TO: sql:text
Select Fields
FROM: sql:varchar(255)
TO: sql:mediumtext
Email Address Fields
FROM: sql:varchar(255)
TO: sql:varchar(100)
Radio Fields
FROM: sql:varchar(255)
TO: sql:mediumtext
Web Address Fields
FROM: sql:varchar(255)
TO: sql:mediumtext

For me though when I ran tools (before and after xml changes) all worked with no red text/errors returned.
BUT I cannot run
Check Community Builder User Fields Database
This returns a blank white page (No errors shown) so there is no further option to repair.
url returned is 'administrator/index2.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=checkcbdb&databaseid=3&cbsecuritym3=cbm_0530681f_566c9348_5c07ab1263c0f6516cc85e271ef8488f
I also get a blank white page (No errors shown) when attempting to add new field
url returned is
administrator/index2.php
I have 95 fields

CB - 1.2.2
Joomla - Version 1.5.15

I can edit existing fields but not create new fields or run 'Check Community Builder User Fields Database' tool

Any ideas on how I may fix this would be most appreciated

The only fix known is adjusting the fields type via database or XML and running tools for CB to perform the database changes. Blank pages do not reveal any debug information please set Debug Mode ON and Error Reporting to Maximum within Joomla Global Configuration then duplicate the issue and review on-screen errors or server error log.

Ok, here is the answer to this issue (until CB 2.0 comes out):

Step 0. As usual, BACKUP your site first.

Open file:

components/com_comprofiler/plugin/user/plug_cbcore/cb.core.xml

Then, depending on the field type of which you have the most of in your CB profile, you can change their formal type as follows:

For text fields: around line 252: change:

[code:1] <field type="text" label="Text Field">
<data name="" nametype="namesuffix" type="sql:varchar(255)" null="true" default="NULL" strict="false" />
<params>
[/code:1]
To e.g., if you have text fields no longer than 150 characters (UTF8 in database reserves 3 bytes per character):

[code:1] <field type="text" label="Text Field">
<data name="" nametype="namesuffix" type="sql:varchar(150)" null="true" default="NULL" strict="true" />
<params>
[/code:1]

Notice to switch strict to ="true" in that line, otherwise the CB database tool won't look at the type correspondence.

You can also change type="sql:varchar(255)" to type="sql:mediumtext" (64k fields but using only 4 bytes in the row) but notice that you will slow a bit all SQL queries as it's an extra disk seek per text field if not in database cache.

Then save file, and go to Tools -> Check CB fields data storage database.

Similarily for single drop-downs if you have a lot of them, you can adjust to your longest drop-down text:

around line 156:
[code:1] <field type="select" label="Drop Down (Single Select)">
<data name="" nametype="namesuffix" type="sql:varchar(255)" null="true" default="NULL" strict="false" />
<params>
</params>
</field>
[/code:1]

could be changed (if e.g. your maximum drop-down text-size is 100 chars) to:
[code:1] <field type="select" label="Drop Down (Single Select)">
<data name="" nametype="namesuffix" type="sql:varchar(100)" null="true" default="NULL" strict="true" />
<params>
</params>
</field>
[/code:1]

Then again CB Tools -> Check Community Builder User Fields Database and fix according to the change made.

Of course backup your changed cb.core.xml file, as that will be overwritten at each CB update, and redo your changes until we make that parameter settable per field in upcoming CB 2.0.

MySQL has a 64 kilobytes limit per row, but for varchar it reserves the maximum size, and for UTF 8 chars, as they take 3 bytes maximum, it again reserves maximum, thus 765 bytes per varchar(255), thus those errors ! Text is stored separately from the row, which then has only a 4-bytes index in it, so it doesn't take space in the row almost, but requires an extra access to fetch the data.
