vbgallery_install.php fails to launch
I just get the admincp header & footer for this page when I attempt to launch that page.
This is my second pass at upgrading gallery; I'm not going to let it stop me from finishing the rest of the board upgrades this time.
I've therefore purchased upgrade service from you fine folks. I look forward to scheduling the work with you.
I seem to remember having an issue on my own server testing our a vbgallery install.
I dont remember off hand which one but it seems to me that under your php settings on the server you must allow these
Enable 'exec' function
Enable 'popen' function
Enable 'passthru' function
Enable 'proc_open' function
Enable 'shell_exec' function
Enable 'system' function
See if your host has any of those enabled and you can enable them as you need them to allow the install to run.
Yes, they're all working (judging by none being disabled in php.ini and testing some code for shell_exec successfully). Its a default fedora core 12 install, on a private server, so, this stuff is (for better or worse) enabled.
Looking forward to hooking Photopost up with the required information to let them do the upgrade we purchased today. I didn't see any instructions, so I assume someone is going to contact me. If not, please let me know how to proceed.
Not a problem I am merely responding to what it sounds like as I had a similar issue where all I got was just a header footer no box to select install upgrade etc
I am using 5.3 php and I had one or a couple of those options disabled in my php and once I enabled them I was able to install fine.
Thanks, Chuck. If there is some way to test for that, other than phpinfo(); or looking in the php.ini, I would love to try it.
I looked in google, but almost all the questions I could find were from people who had problems getting their hosts to turn it on. No suggestions on how to test for it, that I could find. The one I did on shell_exec was from the php manual.
You can always ask your host is any of those are disabled. As I stated I dont know which one specifically caused the issue but most definately when I enabled those functions things worked fine.
well then downgrade from php 5.3 to 5.21
I'm ready to take a bet it will run..
well I have mine running on 5.3 PHP so it works but I would suspect the issue is as I posted one of those functions is not working as thats how I made it work for me.
well i have running php53 running on my dev and if i run the installer.. i get a blank page just the vbgallery header (for install) and a warning..
there is one way to fix it...
good news about seeing the errors.. i found the problem..
on line 1459 find
This should not be a warning, but an error message, because php 5.3 stops on that.. in php 5.2 it still accepted the '' parameter instead of 0
PS: thats why i suggested he should downgrade to php 5.2
when compiling php i guess there is a flag like halt on errors.. as i cant overrule this even if i set php.ini to suppress errors..
Luciano, thank you. Yes, I DO have warnings turned off (because 5.3 SPEWS them into the logs). I've already hired Photopost to do the install, so I'm going to let them go through with that, in part because I've already spent 18 hours this weekend, and I have to make my family (and my job) feel like I notice they are there :) .
I deeply regret going from FC10 to FC12 (should have stopped at FC11). I was ignorant of how radically PHP5.3 had changed things for our previously reliable scripts. If I had it to do over (and I may this still redo the server this summer) I would have gone with CENTOS 5.
If there is an install for us to do we can see what the issue is when we get the required paperwork sent back to us.
Thanks for the install. At least I'm on 2.5(1?)! New post in bugs.
well okay not aware of any issues with 2.51 though
