Hi, I posted here yesterday with some errors I was seeing. I thought it was a database problem and updated the ticket saying so. However, we’ve dug deeper and it’s not the database… well the db has a bunch of issues, such as tables and such being cut-off. Thus causing sites not to load, and throw errors, because the theme settings are only partially there, and/or only part of the contents of the pages are there, and/or various plugin settings are only partially there.
The one thing we keep seeing on site after site in our multisite is some variation of
Warning: Illegal string offset ‘aiosp_do_log’ in /home/fiddlers/public_html/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack-pro/aioseop_class.php on line 53
Have you had any problems with this php file? Any potential security issues there? I’m not a developer, so I can’t look, but my server people are looking at it, as well as a bunch of other stuff. I’m just curious if, knowing your own plugin as well as you do, you might offer any ideas/insights into this….? It’s a major issue for us, making many of our client’s websites ugly and unreadable. I appreciate any help or insight.

Yeah, that all makes sense. Looks like it was a db conversion issue. The db had all it’s tables force-converted from latin1 to utf8, which truncated the contents of most pages, posts, and often theme and plugin settings. Luckily we were able to figure out when it happened, and the miracle workers at our hosting company was able to put together a complete db from the incremental backups and restore everything. We still need to get those tables converted to utf8. But at least we’re not seeing these errors and such. Thanks again for the info.
EDIT: debugging is set to false on this install.
