What is the reason for this error?
Please see picture
You didn't do the upgrade from a previous version of PhpGedView to either 4.2.4 or the SVN version correctly. Specifically: You did not replace file "config_gedcom.php" in your existing installation.
When you upgrade your existing installation, you must first export your database to a GEDCOM file. This ensures that you have a file that matches the contents of your database.
Next, you must replace all files and directories except file "config.php", directory "index", and directory "media" with the contents of the new PGV version you wish to install. If you have any modules that require configuration, you need to ensure that their configuration files are preserved during the upgrade.
Lastly, after launching the new PhpGedView, you must immediately log in as Administrator and re-import the previously exported GEDCOM. You must let PGV replace the database contents and NOT keep media links. This will ensure that all database tables are properly populated.
When PGV starts up, it reads the default GEDCOM configuration file "config_gedcom.php" to define all default settings, including any new ones that don't yet exist in your current configuration. After that, it reads your current GEDCOM configuration and replaces any previously set defaults with the actual values you have set. The variable $USE_SILHOUETTE is new to version 4.2.4 and is therefore first defined in the default GEDCOM configuration.
Sorry about the double post -- Stupid forum software used by SourceForge, combined with "stupid user".
This question should have been posted in the Help forum.
