Fixing FUMP errors – error(s) detected and other
Monday 15 October 2012 @ 1:28 pm

Suddenly I’m becoming expert in fixing FUMP script.  FUMP stands for Follow Up Mailing List Processor and is a script used as autoresponder, with followup messages.  One person asked me to fix a problem with it (strange error). I fixed it, wrote about FUMP on my other blog, and since then a few more people asked me for help.

So, nolens volens, I became FUMP fixing expert. Quite often it is fixing “Error(s) detected” error (when logging in), but sometimes there are other problems, like the aforementioned problem with additional libraries. The interesting thing is, that the script works flawlessly, and then out of sudden it stops, showing detected error message.

 If your FUMP is broken, you can write to me at following e-mail:

poczta [ “at” sign ] arystoteles.pl

I’ll fix it.

The e-mail above is changed so the spammers don’t get it, but you know what to put between poczta and arystoteles: @

Usually I need to check what is wrong, think, find the problem, then fix it.

 What is FUMP?

It is an autoresponder script, that you host on your own server (thus avoiding monthly or yearly costs of using other autoresponders like GetResponse, Aweber etc.).  Youcan have as many mailing lists as you want for no additional costs.  The server you host Follow Up Mailing List Processor must be able to run perl (obviously).  The script is old and not supported by sellwide now, so if it stops working you need to find somebody who is not afraid of diving into mess of it’s code and will fix it.  (The code of that script by Konstantin Ursaloff  is not bad, but it definitely is not beautiful either).

I accept those task to mend the fump because it is good diversion form what i usually do.

 So, to get your FUMP fixed, write to me at:

poczta [ “at” sign ] arystoteles.pl

You know what to put between poczta and arystoteles: @

Common types of erros:

Error(s) detected (with no other message) – the most common problem.

SQL error: : ERROR: 1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘(14) ,   `procnomber` tinyint(4) NOT NULL default ‘0’,   `pid` varchar(6) NOT NU’ at line 1 at lib/dbfunc.pm line 154.

ERROR: 1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘TYPE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=2’

and so much more 🙂

If you want me to install and configure FUMP script

you can contact me too.  I can configure your FUMP to be fully compatible with all diactricts, umlauts, international characters with very capable Unicode encoding UTF-8.
