Thank you @dz - it has improved somewhat. The problem I still have is with the drop down calendar on date fields - I have set the date format to 'DD/MM/YYYY' which is the preference for the user, but when one wants to change using the calendar, it seems to interprate the date field in the format, 'MM/DD/YYYY' like in the example in the attachment I have included - the date in the field is 3rd june, but the calendar opens 6th march.

Thank you @boxygen for the reply.

The date format preference works all right. The problem seems to be when I select a date from the dropdown calendar - for example , when I set the date format to 'DD/MM/YYYY' and the today's date is 02/06/2022, when I click the calendar, it defaults to 6th February. I've tried to set both the format and the separator, and not successful resolving the issue, the date once selected appears in red.

I am having a date format issue whereby when I select a date from the calendar, e.g. 04/04/2022, it appears as '04/04/2022 May 2022'. I have no idea what the problem could be. Any thoughts, ideas are appreciated.

This is definitely a version with superior functions compared to 2.3.22., thank you. The upgrade process is what I am not sure about, especially from such an old version. Is there some instruction available I could refer to?

MySQL v5.1 should be okay.

Thank you @apmuthu

I'll see to this as I upgrade FA to 4.8

1. Seems like you using a shared hosting, try writing the following in your .htaccess this will support php 5.6
<IfModule mime_module>
  AddHandler application/x-httpd-ea-php56___lsphp .php .php5 .phtml
2. or else ask your hosting provider to downgrade the php version for you.

Thank you @dz

This worked.

Now I am working on upgrading to FA 4.8

Thank you for this. What is the right mysql server version for FA 2.3?

Thank you, @rafat, @notrinos, and @dz,

I have downgraded my php to 5.6. The FA installation process is giving the following error after entering loggin credentials;

"SQL script execution failed in line 21: 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' at line 7"

I have a FrontAccounting installation version 2.3 that has been running well until the php version in the server was upgraded to 7.4. any attempt to log in shows a blank page after entering the credentials, without any error message. Any thoughts on possible solution are welcome.

Thank you.

Thank you @islamsaeid3, it worked perfectly.

..and to you @kvvaradha as well, I'd have forgotten to change back the setting.

Many thanks.

Hi All,

I need to capture a transaction that was made 3 fiscal years back. All the earlier years are open, and I have already made the year I need to post in the current financial year. My problem is the date for the transaction is earlier than the last date set for posting GL transactions. When I try to change the last date for GL transactions to accommodate the required entry, I am getting the following message: "The entered date is earlier than date already selected as closing date." Is there a way of overcoming this?

Any thoughts are highly appreciated.
