    myDBR 4.2.0 is an important security update highly recommended for all users.

    As always, you can update to new version using the myDBR's automatic updater.

    Edit: May 14th 2014, 4.2.1
    - Removes Strict warnings with PEAR on older PHP installations
    - Fixes a problem with user permissions

    Edit: May 31st 2014, 4.2.2
    - Fixes a problem some users are experiencing with templates
    - Reduced memory footprint
    - Ability to set string parameter field length

    Happy reporting,

    I get Fatal error: Cannot redeclare check_versionf() in /.../.../mydbr/apps/version.php on line 9 when trying to run the updater.

    Any advice - I'm running 4.0

    there was problem with myDBR automatic updater in myDBR 4.0 builds 2338 - 2349 (available at April 14th - April 23rd).

    To run the updater, just add '&action=update' to the update URL. The URL to use looks like this:

    Got the following message many times. However, the update appears to have worked OK. The summary at the end had all green OKs and Update Complete.

    Warning: touch() [function.touch]: Utime failed: Operation not permitted in
    /var/www/html/mydbr/lib/external/pclzip/pclzip.lib.php on line 3856

    Is this a problem?

    Sounds like a configuration problem in web server's default file permissions.

    myDBR downloads the update zip-package, unzips it and during the process, the zip-library changes the modification times for unzipped files. For some reason your server is able to do the unzipping, but fails on the modification time change. Could be that when files are created, the permissions are not set correctly.

    From myDBR point of view the file modification times are not important. You might still want to check what the web server's umask (the default permissions for created files) is.
