 Description  « Hide
Create a clean installation of Openads 2.0.11-pr1 for PostgreSQL. When setting up the database details, accept the default "socket-based connection" (that is, where only the database username, password and name are entered).

In the configuration file, you will see:

// Database local connection using sockets
$phpAds_config['dblocal'] = false;
// Database hostname
$phpAds_config['dbhost'] = '';
// Database port
$phpAds_config['dbport'] = 5432;
// Database username
$phpAds_config['dbuser'] = 'dbuser';
// Database password
$phpAds_config['dbpassword'] = 'password';
// Database name
$phpAds_config['dbname'] = 'openads';

Add an advertiser, campaign, and then a SQL banner. The SQL banner is displayed in the UI.

Upgrade to OpenX 2.6.0.

The UI will still work, but the SQL banner will no longer be displayed in the UI.


This results in the following:

  1. The UI can connect to the database, as the method for connections in the UI passes in no hostname to pg_connect, so the default hostname (localhost) is used.
  2. The delivery engine cannot connect to the database, as the mehtod for connections in the PgSQL delivery engine driver passes in an empty hostname to pg_connect.

As Andrew sugested, before fixing it we need two changes:
"1) Get both the MySQL and the PgSQL delivery engine connection systems to use similar logic, and fix the issue that we set an empty host instead of letting it be the default, if that's the case.
2) Think about defining what configuration file conbimations are valid, and then ensure we test the connection in all 3 places (PgSQL, MySQL and PEAR) using valid conbinations, and also test the config to alert if it's broken?"

After a clean install Openads 2.0.11-pr1 for PostgreSQL using the default socket db setup, my config.inc.php had the following (which differs from that shown above)
// Database local connection using sockets
$phpAds_config['dblocal'] = true;

// Database hostname
$phpAds_config['dbhost'] = 'localhost';

// Database port
$phpAds_config['dbport'] = 5432;

After upgrade, the host.conf.php file contained:

Attachment sockets_testcases.txt contains details of socket configuration and connection testing for mysql and postgres from both admin and delivery plus 8 upgrade path tests.

Feel free to add more test cases.

Now in 2.8 trunk : refactored socket connectivity (pgsql/mysql) in admin and delivery, database conf settings storage, validation and UI script, conf settings migration for pan and mmm plus added 8 new integration test cases for pan/mmm upgrade class.

See the attachment sockets_testcases.txt for details of test cases and configuration.

Still requires porting to 2.6 trunk
