For my main LisaShea forums I ran a rebuild of the categories, then forums, then posts. When I got to the posts level, which has I think 500k entries, it chugged for a while. Then it jammed on what I think is a spam post. Now what?

\forum\libs\content_rebuild.inc.php
Line#: 89
SQL Error: Incorrect string value: '\xA5\xC3\xA1\xC3\xAD\xC3...' for column 'POST_BODY' at row 1
SQL Error #: 1366
Query: UPDATE ubbt_POSTS SET POST_BODY = '

I have direct access to MySQL. Should I empty out the post_body for post_id=202806? And then just rerun the entire rebuild from scratch?

I wanted to report it so you could account for this in the script.

those are multibyte chars (\xA5\xC3\xA1\xC3\xAD\xC3)

the error you are seeing is the result of multi-byte data characters attempting to be written with a non-multi-byte client character set connector.

Update to at least UBB.threads version 7.7.2 (version 7.7.3 is current), where you can enable this from the control panel:
Control Panel > Paths & Database > Set Default Client Encoding to UTF8

OR, if for some reason you cannot update to the current version where your issue has been already addressed/fixed....

you can manually update your database to utf8mb4_general_ci collation, and modify the mysqli connector.

in /forums/libs/mysqli.inc.php
FIND:
Code
if (!isset($config['PERSISTENT_DB_CONNECTION']) || !$config['PERSISTENT_DB_CONNECTION']) {
	$this->dbh = mysqli_connect($config['DATABASE_SERVER'], $config['DATABASE_USER'], $config['DATABASE_PASSWORD'], $config['DATABASE_NAME']) or die("Problem occured in connection");
} else {
	$this->dbh = mysqli_connect("p:" . $config['DATABASE_SERVER'], $config['DATABASE_USER'], $config['DATABASE_PASSWORD'], $config['DATABASE_NAME']) or die("Problem occured in connection");
}

INSERT BELOW IT:
Code
mysqli_set_charset($this->dbh, "utf8mb4");

Just a note, I looked at the live forums and this was a garbage post even when it was first posted. It was a spammer back in 2007. So I just blanked out the post content itself rather than changing the entire forum setting right now smile.

Thank you for you reply.

Even though you did not use the solution posted for you, it should be helpful for anyone else who arrives at the same situation and chooses to not just delete posts which contain offending multibyte (or emoji) characters.

I will probably get to doing that update in the next few weeks. I'm just very busy right now so a quick fix works better smile.
