Strange MySQLi behaviour

Strange MySQLi behaviour

Hello there

I know this is probably not really a Web Assist issue, but I am baffled.
Having used WA for many, many years I have never had a situation like this.
It is quite simply that one one of my remote hosts, I cannot display records from a view stored in MySQL on a PHP page.
This works fine on my local development server - I can run the query in MySQL, PHPMyAdmin and display fine on a PHP page.
On my hosts server, I can run the query in PHP MyAdmin fine and see the results, but the results DON'T display on the PHP page - no results, no errors, nothing.

This only happens with views - tables are fine, and I CAN return the records with the 'traditional' method of defining the connection credentials in the PHP page.
My hosts will only say 'This must be a coding error . . .' - not very helpful.

This must be something to do with the include of the rsobj.php file, but only with views.

Is this anything you have come across before please?

Many thanks

Steve

I haven't run into that, but if you give me ftp information and a url to test it I can see if I can identify the problem. Possibly permissions for the user not having access to the view?

Hello Ray and thanks for the reply.
I have taken this a little further - stored the simplest view possible by simply returning values from a table.
As before, the page with the connection string and credentials returns the records no problem, whilst the WebAssist MySQLi method returns nothing.
I have suggested to the hosts that for some reason the server is not happy at displaying a view using a PHP include with defined classes, but with a simple 'contained' page, it is.
That does indeed suggest a permissions issue, but it works with a straightforward page??!!

Don't know if access would help - I have asked the hosts to look into it further with my suggestions as to the cause - I can certainly send you the pages if you wish.

Regards

Steve

If I could test it, then I could figure it out. I may need ftp and connection information to fully test it, but I'd like to test it to see if I can figure out what is going on and see if it is something I can fix.

I'd just need the ability to reproduce the problem and update the pages that cause the problem for testing.

Thank you for your help as always - I eventually decided to change my site by writing the query into the page instead of relying on views.in the database.
I can say without a doubt (in case anyone else reads this post) that this was almost certainly a strange hosting server error and nothing to do with the WebAssist extension, which works very well.

Sorry to resurrect this one but have come across the same issue today, this is on a site that has been functional for several months. As of today any queries on views stopped working and I was forced to write the full query into the page in order to make it work properly.

Just wondering if you could share any wisdom gained from the above?

Best

If you give me FTP access I can look into it further. I'm not sure what would cause this offhand.

I'm taking a look, but I need to access the page for testing purposes. What is the URL?

I may need access to the phpMyAdmin directly as well. Are you sure the user you are using has access to the view from a permissions perspective?
