    Thanks Jerome, I had added the https, and amended the .htaccess as it's in a subdirectory. Good shout about upgrading to 3.3 - I'll make that my next step forward as I'm still exploring and learning.    view reply

    I haven't encountered a problem like this before. Maybe it has something to do with the setup (it being behind a reverse proxy) - the site url configured in the site settings is correct (even http vs https matters). If for example the... view reply

    I have that error and am glad to see that it is not likely a hacking issue. I am guessing that upgrading may have some unintended consequences since I did a lot of formatting for the Elgg site but would the content be available? This is quite a few... view reply

    Do you have this error in your log ? Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() If yes, you're on PHP 7. FYI: https://elgg.org/pages/view/2045983/tip-how-to-fix-the-problem-with-mysql-56 view reply

    Does a message like this mean someone was hacking the site? You need check syslog​ on your server to find out what happened. Can you change the MySQL password? If yes, do it. Which your Elgg version? view reply

    Hello everyone. I have an old Elgg site that just went down and I wanted to check and see if anyone knows this error number and could point me in the right direction. I'm not sure if it will be worth fixing or if I should just replace the...
    • Sure, the process is very hard but sooner or later everyone goes through it. 

      If you have many custom plugins, or plugins that haven't yet been updated, the update may take months.

      At the same time, you must code or have someone who knows how to do it.

      It was a challenge for us too but we did it.

      Are there any threads on that process

      Try search.

      Me and iionly wrote a lot about it.

      In addition, I can also give these snippets for you:
