Thank you all for your continued patience with me.
Since the past two updates, I keep getting the following error:
Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 0 of 8 bytes in Civi\Core\SettingsBag->loadValues() (line 153 of /home/[usrpath]/public_html/[sitedirectory]/sites/all/modules/civicrm/Civi/Core/SettingsBag.php).
I know this is related to a mySQL database problem, but for the life of me I cannot figure this out.
I am running CiviCRM 4.7.14 on Drupal 7.52
Thank you again
