Suppress-o-Matic - Stop database error spam

What is Suppress-o-matic?
Suppress-o-matic is a change to the way vBulletin handles database error emails. It limits sending the same error email repeatedly to your inbox every time a database error is generated. On a busy site if a table is crashed or mysql itself goes down you could recieve several thousand emails. This causes the email server to bog down, and possibly the server itself if there is enough traffic generating emails.

Why do I want Suppress-o-matic?
It should be pretty clear, you still get the vital information that your vBulletin forum is offline for whichever reason, without the hassle of having to delete and manage your inbox afterwords.

Why do I have to edit the files?
If the database is down, there is no way to get to the plugins. Plugins are stored in the vBulletin database.

Isn't there a vBulletin Option for this?
There is an option to disable some emails, assuming that the settings table can be read. If it cannot then it doesn't work. It even states this on the option itself.

Can't I just remove my tech email from the config file?
This doesn't keep you up to date. What if a serious error like error 28 (no space left) crops up? This means that your server could potentially have serious issues. Not resolving these problems could cause major issues.

Are you considering adding more functionality to Suppress-o-matic?
We have plans to add a repair feature at some point in time, with an on/off switch.

What is SQlite?
SQLite is a tiny database engine that is found in PHP. It is very lite, and requires only that php have the extension. There is no other dedicated server for it. You can find more information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SQLite


Whats required?
PHP5
SQLITE2 or newer (found in most php installations)
1 file edit
1 file to upload

Future versions:
Repair table feature

Excellent, exactly what I was looking for to help get a handle on all of the error messages we get when the db is being backed up. Great work, thank you!

I know you say it works on 3.7+ but would I run any risk by trying to install it on a 3.6.12 board? Thanks.

I haven't tested it on 3.6, but I can't think of a reason that it wouldn't work on it.

Absolutely amazing modification. May be one of the most directly useful modifications on this website.

Having database errors spit out a single email instead of hundreds of emails is HUGE and I recommend this mod to everybody. Despite ridding your email inbox of server error spam, you don't want your server to build up a huge email queue during high load times. This will save anyone who installs it a lot of headache.

Mahz approved.

What is "your base vBulletin directory"? Is that the /forums directory that it's referring to, or the one above it /public_html on the server?

Wherever you have your vBulletin files installed to, if all of the vBulletin files and folders are in the /forum/s directory than that is the correct one.

If you have the product installed and are getting tons of emails, check the permissions on your sqlite database.
