Support » Plugin: Events Manager » Admin crash when activating events manager

  • Every time I activate Events Manager after instaling it my admin page crashes compleatly. I can´t log in or do anything so I have to use my backup to get it working again. I have tried deactivating all of my other plugins and changeing the theme to WP standard theme 2017 and 2016.

    I´ve also tried to download the plugin directly from Events Managers site and uploding the zipfile and that didn´t work either. Any idea on what´s wrong?

    Thanks for help

    just to narrow down the problem and help us debug the issue is it possible to try the following temporarily:

    – deactivating all other plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).
    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems

    also, you can try to enable wp_debug or check your php logs to see if there’s any other error.

    Admin and pages on front where events widget is displayed.

    Error is on this line in em-events.php:
    $groupby_sql[] = $events_table.’.post_id’; //prevent duplicates showing in lists

    PHP = 7.1.2

    I have seen other fatal errors in EM where they said to add parentheses “[]”, but for my fatal error it helped to remove them, or comment whole line.

    Add parentheses in where?

    As I wrote in my first message I´ve allready tried deactivating all of the plugins and changeing to the standard theme for 2017. I´ve also tried the standard for 2016.

    I have found another plugin that helps me whith what i need so at the moment I will stick to that due to lack of time and knowledge in PHP errors. But if you can explain how to prevent the error i might tyr it again.

    Thanks for your help any way.

    I removed “[]” after “groupby_sql” and error is gone.
    I have seen many EM support topics about fatal errors and PHP 7.0 versions where people fixed it by adding “[]” on some other places.

    Now in PHP 7.1.2 I needed to remove them. Or disable this whole line.

    You have to agree this fatal error has nothing to do with other plugins or theme, only PHP version specific.
