[resolved] Fatal Errors (2 posts)

    Hi, Since you are marking the previous thread as resolved I am starting a new one:

    As posted in the previous thread-this is what happened to my site after updating the connections plugin:

    This update is disastrous. I had to restore to my backup from last week to repair the damages done to the site.

    Here is a sampling of the error issues I am getting. What is most interesting is that this update also corrupts other plugin phps:

    Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #5 is not an array in /home/collecto/public_html/wp-includes/rewrite.php on line 1591

    Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /home/collecto/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-email/wp-email.php on line 88

    Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /home/collecto/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-email/wp-email.php on line 104

    Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in /home/collecto/public_html/wp-content/plugins/events-manager/classes/em-permalinks.php on line 183

    From the techs at my host:

    This seems to be the error:
    PHP Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/collecto/public_html/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-gravityforms-product-addons/gravityforms-product-addons.php on line 91 and defined in /home/collecto/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990

    Today:
    I beg to differ. I have spent the better part of the day yesterday restoring to a previous backup and the problem is not present. This problem only occurred when I installed the update yesterday.

    As of today, January 22, I have gone back over every single plugin in my site, everything is up to date including wp 3.5...and nothing is causing this problem.

    I'm scared to apply the update because of the mess that happened yesterday.

    If you notice, those are all array_merge errors...and the only thing I can think of is that your latest update creates an issue with WP-Email plugin. However, they are not all in regards to the wp-email plugin phps..there are multiple locations this has happened.

    So, in reviewing this issue, first, I notice that I am missing an update version, and that the update is being applied to version 0.7.3.1. I never got update notices for the 0.7.3.2 and .3 versions.

    Does this make a difference? Would applying the version 0.7.3.4 to 0.7.3.1 and skipping the updates be an issue.

    Regards,
    Will Wilson

    One point I will concede ... when I push out updates, they are usually quiet affairs. This one had a couple issues that made it thru testing that affected a small set of users in a bad way.

    What I can tell you as a matter of absolute fact, Connections can not alter or corrupt other plugins files. It is very likely you could have simply deactivated Connections. And, if needed, install the previous version rather than resorting to restoring your whole site from a backup.

    If WP-Email does not generate errors on its own, it is completely possible it was hooking into the same function as Connections in WP and if that plugin was expecting an array it would too report the same array_merge() error. It's important to state that simply hooking into the same filter in WP will not cause corruption between plugins files.

    To answer your question, you do not need to update from .2 to .3 to .4, you can update straight to the .5 version. At this point I would wait for the .6 version as it fixes yet a few more minor issues.

    I do hope that this helps and do apologize for the trouble you had and the time it caused you.
