  1. myDBR Team, Key Master

    myDBR Team is happy to announce the availability of the myDBR 5.8 release.

    The long wait for 5.8 release is now over as ionCube has released the 10.4.0 loader with PHP 7.4. PHP 7.4 support was one of the features planned for myDBR 5.8 release.

    The recommended ionCube loader is now 10.4.0 as it fixes some memory leaks resulting in lower memory consumption on affected platforms.

    myDBR 5.8.0 will be the last release supporting PHP 5.3 - 5.4. If you are using those versions (or PHP 5.6), your should update the PHP version.

    Hello myDBR Team !

    Thanks you for this new release and your great job !

    I encoutered a problem during automatique update and I don't understand what is it...

    Do you have an idea...? I tried to add indexs on column "user" and "aunthentication" on "mydbr_userlogin table but it doesn't work...

    Updating database Failed
    Running script failed with error
    MySQL error 1215: Cannot add foreign key constraint
    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `mydbr_favourite_folders` (
    `id` int not null auto_increment,
    `user` varchar(128),
    `authentication` int NOT NULL,
    `folder_id` int NOT NULL,
    INDEX USING BTREE ( `user`, `authentication` ),
    FOREIGN KEY (`folder_id`) REFERENCES mydbr_folders (`folder_id`) ON DELETE CASCADE,
    FOREIGN KEY (`user`, `authentication`) REFERENCES mydbr_userlogin (`user`, `authentication`) ON DELETE CASCADE
    ) ENGINE=InnoDB

    most likely you are running myDBR with different charset/collation that you installed it with.

    Check the output of

    mysql> show create table mydbr_userlogin

    If it says


    Then create the mydbr_favourite_folders table with command:

    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `mydbr_favourite_folders` (
    `id` int not null auto_increment,
    `user` varchar(128),
    `authentication` int NOT NULL,
    `folder_id` int NOT NULL,
    INDEX USING BTREE ( `user`, `authentication` ),
    FOREIGN KEY (`folder_id`) REFERENCES mydbr_folders (`folder_id`) ON DELETE CASCADE,
    FOREIGN KEY (`user`, `authentication`) REFERENCES mydbr_userlogin (`user`, `authentication`) ON DELETE CASCADE

    After this the updater should work just fine.

    Hey myDBR Team
    Great job!

    I have a question about the license. We are currently using version 5.7, but at the same time have to update to PHP 7.4.
    Do we have to order a new license or is there an upgrade option to 5.8?

    DB: mysql
    Type: premium
    Version: 5.7.4
