Aardvark Topsites PHP 5.1.2 Released

Version 5.1.2 has been released!

For most people, 5.1.2 brings only minor bug fixes. However, if your server has magic_quotes_gpc disabled, 5.1.2 fixes a serious security hole.

To check if your server has magic_quotes_gpc disabled, create a file named phpinfo.php with this in it:

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

Upload it to your topsites folder and go to it in your browser. Look for the table row for magic_quotes_gpc. If it says "off", then you should upgrade to 5.1.2 as soon as possible.

Here is a list of changes since 5.1.1:
- Critical security fix for servers with magic_quotes_gpc disabled (most servers are not affected)
- Automatically deleting inactive members is working again
- In button.php, rank calculating ignores inactive sites
- Character encodings in the installer/upgrader now work
- Month names on the stats page are translated into the default language instead of always being English (this has not been extensively tested, but it seems to work; let me know if it doesn't)
- Ad breaks no longer break the page layout if they are directly below the final rank
- If there are 24 members and 10 listed per page, the multiple pages drop-down member will show the last page as 21-24 instead of 21-30
- Fixed some minor HTML problems
- Fixed search query display glitch (' was shown as \')

For the ultra-curious, here are all the changes in the code since 5.1.1: http://svn.berlios.de/wsvn/atsphp?op=co ... ualorder=1

Alright, I'm going to upgrade it now as there isn't that many changes so it's only a few files to upload. Thanks for your contribution in always improving Aardvark Topsites Php.

How can I upgrade from 5.1.0 to 5.1.2 :?:

There are only two upgrade options in the package i.e. :arrow: from upgrade-4.x.php and upgrade-5.0.x.php

I wish you made upgrade-5.1.1.php :!:

I will change the whole script if there are no database changes .... are there :?: Will it work :?:

Thanks

The reason being is there is no MySQL changes Atishay, its merely file changes. So just view the manual upgrade page to see what files to replace.

I would be very much grateful to you if you could just list the name of the files with changes from 5.1.0 to 5.1.2

Sorry for the trouble

Thanks

Atishay, can you not read for your self. It's the same everything. Click the link entitled manual inwhich Jeremy has posted, then click the upgrade button. You will end up here: Upgrade Manual

Now simply read from which version you had. So you had 5.1.0? Then you would need this:

1. Delete your old languages folder and upload the new languages folder
2. Upload the following files:
* index.php
* sources/rankings.php
* sources/search.php
* sources/stats.php
* sources/misc/new_day.php
* sources/misc/skin.php
3. Add this code below the title tag in wrapper.html and gateway.html:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset={$lng->charset}" />


It's very simple really.
