I have been runnning civiCRM for more than 2 years until now ; but I meet some problems (phone number cannot be saved).

So I try to install a new CiviCRM (4.7.11) on Drupal 7.50, the simplest way : install Drupal via Cpanel, upload civicrm tar.gz, and then install via sites/all/modules/civicrm/install/index.php (fetching Data Base credentials inside settings.php).

I have made several trials (http or https, same or separate database(s)) : all of them end with a

"Sorry but we are not able to provide this at the moment. DB Error: unknown error".

However, all the civicrm tables are created, and the CiviCRM Menu can be displayed, but whatever I want to do (e.g. create a new contact), I get this DB Error again, and the info is not saved.

My hosting is based upon PHP 5.5, MariaDB 10.0.27 (supposed to be fully compatible with MySQL) (and a friend of mine, who uses the same hoster, has no such installation problem)

The significant error information is:

DB_Error->DB_Error(-1, 16, (array:2), "SHOW function status WHERE db = database() AND name = 'civicrm_strip_non_numer...")


DB_common->raiseError(-1, NULL, NULL, NULL, "1728 ** Cannot load from mysql.proc. The table is probably corrupted")

A backtrace from when I try to create a new contact is shown below.


Any help would be highly appreciated.

Finally, I found that this was due to a .htaccess jam (between drupal and civicrm) : inconsistencies and contradictions in "rewriterules", used to https:// the site, delete initial www., and redirect (and keep) to the pertinent civicrm directory.


I've seen this before. It's when the host upgrades mysql and system tables don't get upgraded. I had to ask them to run mysql_upgrade.

  • I already proposed that to my hoster : it is not the cause. I personally suspect a problem with .htaccess or settings.php vs https Sep 28 '16 at 7:44
