Deprecated: Function ereg_replace()

While I click forgot password, its asking an email address for send the password to the email id. After giving email id I am getting this error on the top of the header as below:-

Deprecated: Function ereg_replace() is deprecated in C:\wamp\www\forums\bb_func_sendpwd.php on line 32

And the line no 32 is:

${$dbUserNp}=substr(ereg_replace("[^0-9A-Za-z]", "A", writeUserPwd(uniqid(rand()))),0,8); $newPasswd=${$dbUserNp};

Any help on this?

Ok, you may replace all eregi_* statements to preg_* if your PHP version experiences this. Like I already proposed in this thread.

Here, you may try the code:

${$dbUserNp}=substr(preg_replace("#[^0-9A-Za-z]#", "A", writeUserPwd(uniqid(rand()))),0,8); $newPasswd=${$dbUserNp};

After doing the modification I am getting error like as below:-

Warning: mail() [function.mail]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in C:\wamp\www\forums\bb_functions.php on line 231

This error is related to the mailing function, not ereg_replace. It seems you don't have SMTP server installed, that's why the script won't be able to send emails. Set up


under setup_options.php.

We're providing free support only on business days.

P.S. This has been fixed in miniBB 2.5.
