There is no need to replicate my posts in quote-blocks, so I removed the one in your last post.  ;D

There is no PHP version 6. The PHP developers started working on it in early 2009, but they ran into too many hurdles in creating PHP 6 and eventually abandoned it. Most of the features they had been working on have since been added to PHP 5.x.

I probably can't help you. I do all my testing offline on my office computer, using XAMPP version 1.8.2 (Apache server package) running PHP version 5.4.31. The latest stable version of PHP is 5.6.20 but commercial website hosts don't run the latest version. The latest version of XAMPP is using PHP 5.6.19.
.... What version of PHP is your host server running?
.... If you have a phpinfo.php file in the root of your website domain, you can point your browser to it and get the full spec sheet for your host server.

Have you checked out the PHP Documentation website to see what has changed from PHP 5.4 to PHP 5.6?

Keyrock,

It's being hosted via a hosting company TMDHosting. Secondly, i have the correct information in my db details now. The problem is that so much is deprecated it seems for php6/. I get a blank page.

Keyrock...any chance you may tackle this feat?

OK. First, we need some initial details.
1) Where do you have your Snews1.7MU package installed - on your local machine or on a host server?
2) If on your local machine (offline, on your own computer), are you using XAMPP as your server client?

Looking at the error log in your March 6th post (up above) all of the errors are in two functions located in your installation's engine file (snews27MU.php)

A) Lines 3603 & 3604 are the first two lines in function_connect which makes the connection to your database. Line 3603 determine whether or not the host-name, username and password are correct. If they are correct, line 3604 connects to the database (named in your connection settings). If they are not correct, you get the error messages (as shown in your error log).
Quote
// CONNECT TO DATABASE
function connect_to_db() {
   $db = mysql_connect(db('dbhost'), db('dbuname'), db('dbpass'));
   mysql_select_db(db('dbname')) or die(l('dberror'));
   if (mysql_num_rows(mysql_query("SHOW TABLES LIKE '"._PRE.'articles'."'")) != 1) {
         die(l('db_tables_error'));
   }
}

B) The rest of the error messages in your error log are on lines 3581 & 3582 in the // FILELIST FUNCTION, which is just above the database connection function. This function determines which files in your site's engine file-set are visible or not visible to a logged-in site administrator while in the admin panels. If it can't find the variable values it needs, it kicks out the error messages.

What the Problem probably is:

1) Check to make sure the values you have in your database connection variables at the top of the snews17MU.php file are correct - one or more of them is not correct for your installation.
Quote
// DATABASE VARIABLES
function db($variable) {
   $db = array(
      'dbhost'    => 'localhost', // MySQL host
      'dbname'    => 'snews17mu_ha100', // Database name
      'dbuname'    => 'root', // Database Username
      'dbpass'    => '', // Database password
      'prefix'    => '' // Table prefix for multiple sNews systems on one database (if you don't need it just leave it blank)
   );
   return $db[$variable];
}

That is what I am attempting to do. Hopefully, I will be successful.

How did you make out on this - did you get it running OK?

No. I didn't have much luck and somewhat short on time. I wish I could get it done.

Is there any more development being done on Snews? Or is the project dead? Thanks

Thanks for checking in and asking.
No, there hasn't been any new development of sNews for several years now. sNews 1.7.1 - updated on February 12, 2011 was the final version. Those of us who were developing it up to that time couldn't come to agreement on how to get version 2.0 going. A few (including myself) continue using heavily modified forks we had developed for individual use. Anyone is free to start working on a new version though.

Congrats on the progress. In my case, the errors listed by the converter tool did not help. I made sure no error in database connection first and then clear each of the errors from error log.

What I did was put the file in the GUI folder and point it to the http location of that file and it converted it. Now i need to fix the errors that it listed and hopefully it will work.
