not found error on line 175 is really embarrassing. The fix of making the IF statement false helps but it also is an embarrassment. I wrote the following announcement in my journal with this regard:HookRegistry
MCFNS System: Update on the PHP upgrade ERROR
We have implemented a temporary fix for the logging in and out of the system. The HookRegistry not found error is not showing anymore but the screen display is frequently going into 404 blank page errors, which needs to be screen-refreshed for displaying properly. In addition, after logging in or out the screen cannot be just refreshed but needs to be backed up to previous screen and then refreshed, or even worse: unsuccessfully refreshed, and then backed out to previous display, and then refreshed. We know how idiotic this all sounds and do not want to encourage anyone to do anything other than patiently wait for the real solution, and correspond in the meantime by email with the journal editor at email@example.com
Without the fix nobody can log on. With the fix you have to keep one hand of the screen refresh key and one on the mouse because you have to refresh the screen just about every time you click something or press return. It's a nightmare. Can anyone help PLEASE?
Please note that fixing of the bug 4775 doesn't help at all with this problem. We have even tried new installations of different versions of OJS and it seems quite simply that none of the OJS versions work with PHP 5.2.11 (note I originally stated that it was 5.3 but after checking the version I found that that was not correct) because of the problem with referencing the include files (or at least referencing the HookRegistry). We have even asked the host administrator to role back the PHP installation to an older version, but he refused stating that the upgrade is security related and that Drupal works fine with it, so that's the OJS problem not the PHP upgrade problem. Can you find a fix for it please?
BTW, is there anyone out there who has an OJS installation running well in PHP 5.2.11 environment?
