Registration does not work at all after successful installation (I already filled my board with forums and topics).

I find the following exception in my error log, every time I attempt a registration (I deleted all my cookies, and tried with several webbrowsers):

Error System 9/6/2014 9:01:36 AM mscorlib

YAF Version: v2.1.2.0

.NET Version: 4.0.30319.18063

Hoster: "1&1 Unlimited Windows Plus" (http://www.1und1.de)

http://www.vwboard.de 

Everything else works like a charm, I've been using the forum for 30 hours without any issues, and I must say that I find it really impressive. It's fast, and setup was very easy and straight-forward. And also the administrative interface is quite good, and every option is easy to find. YAF has many options I didn't expect from a free forum software at all.

I did some debugging, and found that it's an issue with the Geolocation IP-service.

When I turn off the IP-Info-Service in the host-settings (http://vwboard.de/default.aspx?g=admin_hostsettings#View2), then registration works.

I had these settings (part of my api-key is hidden):

http://api.ipinfodb.com/v3/ip-city/?key=630PARTLY0HIDDEN0084c0&format=xml&ip= {0}

IP Information Geolocation Web Service Params= StatusCode,StatusMessage,IpAddress,CountryCode,CountryName,RegionName,CityName,ZipCode,Latitude,Longitude,TimeZone

http://www.ip2location.com/ {0}

I also tried the original value for the web-service params which contained a typo (there's an additional space-char next to 'IpAddress' ):

StatusCode,StatusMessage, IpAddress,CountryCode,CountryName,RegionName,CityName,ZipCode,Latitude,Longitude,TimeZone

That also failed.

Then I took a look at the response from api.ipinfodb.com which looks like:

OK31.18.126.144DEGERMANYBERLINBERLIN1017852.524413.4105+02:00

for my IP:

http://api.ipinfodb.com/v3/ip-city/?key=630PARTLY0HIDDEN0084c0&format=xml&ip=31.18.126.144 

So I remembered that XML-tags are case-sensitive, and tried with the following setting:

statusCode,statusMessage,ipAddress,countryCode,countryName,regionName,cityName,zipCode,latitude,longitude,timeZone

But still registration doesn't work.

FillLocationData-function surely needs some love (and a check against invalid input).

Could somebody help me please? (I also tried all of the above strings with semicolon instead of comma, but that still didn't work)

For now I turned that module off, and can run my forum. But I would surely like to use that function.

Thanks!

Thanks.

Do you have any idea though, what the second error means?

(it happens when I attempt to load the version-information page)

Yes it means that the connection to the YAF Server to retrieve the version info could not be connect. But i don't have an idea at the moment why this is happening, for most users this works without any problems.
