I’ll try to make this short and succinct.  I have a Drupal 8 theme that I purchased (I won't name names) and all was good for the first month but then I noticed that whenever I made system changes to the site I would get errors like this (especially when I did a configuration Import):

Configuration block.block.footer depends on the ntv_block_background module that will not be installed after import.

This specific module does not exist, that I can find, but I believe that it is a module that the developer used during development and did not uninstall it correctly when he decided he did not want to use it anymore.  So the data that I acquired from the theme’s SQL was bad to begin with.  I have tried contacting the original author but I get no reply and have given up on that channel.

Digging Deeper: In the SQL database under the Config table is a data blob that contains references to this module in about 63 different data blobs.  a relevant section of the data looks like this:

s:20:"ntv_block_background";a:8:{s:7:"disable";s:7:"disable";s:5:"color";s:7:"#000000";s:8:"bg_image";a:0:{}s:13:"bg_image_type";s:7:"default";s:9:"bg_repeat";s:2:"no";s:17:"bg_image_position";s:0:"";s:13:"bg_image_size";s:0:"";s:18:"background_overlay";s:0:"";}

My Question: There is too many references to remove by hand, Is there a utility (drush or other) to remove meta-data from a module that I no longer have access to and purge the unused data so that it does not …

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

I have an existing site (I inherited, didn't build) that was functioning properly...not sure when it went south.

SMTP auth settings are as follows: SMTP server is onsite exchange, port 25, no encryption, no auth. No errors and the email is sent as desired when I test via SMTP Auth Support module.

When attempting to submit via our webform, this error is thrown and no email is sent.

I can't find anything in the webform itself that seems pertinent.

I'm not sure if it's on the Drupal side or if it's the Exchange server.

Any ideas? I'm a total Drupal noob, please take pity while responding :)

Thanks!

I'm trying to setup a single sign on to Drupal with simpleSAMLphp and simpleSAMLphp_auth module from Drupal. I'm able to login now but the "Automatic role population from simpleSAMLphp attributes" roles do not seem to work. I have the following role and when I'm logged in, I do not have the local Drupal admin previliage.

1:mail,=,charlie@example.com|1:isMemberOf,=,CN=WEB.ADMIN

When I tried to access the mysite.com/admin/ I get an Access Denied.

We had a user here who installed our Drupal CMS, and today when the user account was removed it apparently took the Drupal install with it, as our site went down and only gave a file listing afterwards.  We're a small fire department, and very few IT-capable folks.  I'm barely competent on Linux honestly, but can make my way through some of it.  

What I've done so far is re-downloaded Drupal, and extracted it.  I'm hoping that our site will still be in the DB, but without the CMS I can't tell.  Regardless, the new install tells me that the settings.php isn't writable.  I've made it as writable as I possibly can, and I'm not sure where to go from here.  The default sites is 755, and settings.php is 655 as it's indicated as needed.  I've changed the ownership and group to "www" for damn near everything, and still can't get the install to progress.  

Help??

We have installed the addressfield_autocomplete module.  It is working as expected.  When I create a content type with an addressfield type, I can set the widget to the autocomplete, and the form works beautifully.

I have a custom form created through the Forms API, and want to add addressfield to it.  The module did not support this initially.  I found a resolved issue requesting this same feature, and implemented this patch.  That worked fine - I have the addressfield block on my custom form.  However, it is not using the autocomplete widget.  How can I tell Drupal, via Forms API or other code-based solution, to render this field with the autocomplete-widget?

I have a Drupal site. The server that the Drupal site is on has several folders that I'd like to impliment Role based access to. The roles could be impliment to the folders, and roles also for designated files within the folders.

The folders are added to the server through a FTP process and not using Drupal.

How would I impliment the Role based access?

Hi

Ive got 2 sites: a WP site and another drupal site I want to add an opt-in form to build an email list, but I need a couple of things:

1/ first of all I only need to ask for their email but I need to know in which page (URL) they entered their email because I plan to insert the opt-in in hundreds of pages so I need to know an email came from which page exactly

2/ I need to have the option to choose in which way the opt-in form is displayed, Id like to choose between a typical pop-up or a form in the sidebar or in the middle of the post at a specific point, or the form appearing in the sides, I need to have a wide array of options for the placement and behaviour of this form

Ive seen things like Thrive Leads, I like that a lot, but right now it escapes my budget, could I get something in the same vein but free or cheaper?

Ive tried Optin Forms but I can't seem to find the way to customize its behaviour and placement on the post, other than after a few paragraphs or at the end of the post, but no side or pop up options. Also I dont know if theres an option to see from which URL came every email address

As for the drupal site Ive got no idea if drupal uses a similar plugin system than WP, and what kind of opt-in is recommended for a drupal site

thanks in advance for any help

Use case:  When the Status is Overdue, the word overdue should display in red, and if it's Accepted, it should display as green.

I was hoping to use Rules to set this up, but don't see options to get this logic in.

Hello,

I am trying to get drupal multisite running on centos 6.6 vps.
My main site main.com (which has its own mysql db) is working fine, This site has also the domain access module installed (https://www.drupal.org/project/domain).

My other 2 sites are in the main.com/sites folder (i.e. main.com/sites/mysite1.com and main.com/sites/mysite2.us). These 2 sites share another existing mysql database. They both have settings.php with same db info and different base_url strings.

The main.com/sites directory also has sites.php file which looks something like this:
$sites['default'] = 'main.com';
$sites['mysite1.com'] = 'mysite1.com';
$sites['mysite2.us'] = 'mysite2.us';

When trying to access either mysite1.com or mysite2.us I am getting 403 Forbidden error (Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.)

When trying to import existing install (in Installatron) for the 2 sites I am getting (Error: Unable to detect the source installed application's database information. Please contact support for assistance.)

How to resolve this to get it working?

Thanks.

I created a DRUPAL site on GoDaddy for audiofiles of interviews.  It worked fine BEFORE I added SSL. Now, when you click on a file, it tries to launch Windows Media Player then says: "Windows Media Player cannot connect to the server. The server name might not be correct, the server might not be available, or your proxy settings might not be correct."

If you hover over the file, you can clearly see the location of the file under a PRIVATE folder.

Then if you RIGHT click on the audio file to try and download it, it creates a random name, instead of keeping the file name like a normal download.  THIS IS WHAT I NEED FIXED THE MOST!  

In Drupal, we are using the AudioField pages and allowing MP3 and WMV files.
