php 5.5 problems

Postby jhisaza » Tue Dec 17, 2013 8:18 pm

Hi, I am using OCS with php 5.3; however, after upgrading to php 5.5, some pages like:

show a blank page on:

Gestión General

Conferencias/Congresos programados
Plantillas de correos-e
Logs del Evento

Conferencias/Congresos activos

Secciones de la conferencia
Equipo organizador

» Directores
» Directores de la sección
» Revisores/as
» Autores
» Lectores/as

» Todos los/as usuarios/as inscritos/as
» Inscribir a un usuario desde este sitio en este congreso

» Gestores del evento

What is the problem?

Hi jhisaza,

Blank pages usually indicate PHP errors; check your error log for details. See also the FAQ.

Hello, we have the same issue on http://eale.org. I checked the logs, and found the following:

Code: Select all
[Fri Jan 10 13:26:53.041280 2014] [:error] [pid 24353] [client 93.135.XXX.XXX:50447] PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function session_is_registered() in /home/www/eale.org/lib/pkp/classes/session/Session.inc.php on line 64, referer: http://eale.org/conference/index/manager

A quick check for session_is_registered leads us to http://php.net/manual/en/function.sessi ... stered.php with the clear warning:

Warning. This function has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 5.4.0.

So, since we are running PHP 5.5.3, I guess we are out of the game. We are running OCS 2.3.4, but the same problem is present in the current version 2.3.5:

Code: Select all
$ grep session_is_registered ocs-2.3.* -r
ocs-2.3.4/lib/pkp/classes/session/Session.inc.php:      if (session_is_registered($key)) {
ocs-2.3.5/lib/pkp/classes/session/Session.inc.php:      if (session_is_registered($key)) {

Unfortunately, we are unable to downgrade our PHP, so are we stuck, or does anybody know a quick workaround? Thanx a lot in advance

OCS 2.3.6 is working fine with PHP 5.4.
