Support » Fixing WordPress » Any incompatibility or problem with PHP 5.4.29?

  • Resolved Marcelo Pedra


    Hello guys. Today I upgraded one server from PHP 5.4.28 to PHP 5.4.29 and suddenly my WP sites were unable to upgrade plugins, themes or the WP itself if I click on re-install.

    The resulting page is showing that kind of error where the system is unable to download the package, looking something like http //

    May this be due to some CURL weirdness? any way to troubleshoot/reconfigure this or test if cURL is working fine?

    I can recall WP has the ability to use several channels, like HTTP or FTP. Can anyone point me to any available doc?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi, since the major change you did was to update php thwn I’ll try to troubleshoot that…

    Is your webserver log file showing any errors when you attempt to update/install plugins?
    Have you manually modified any php core files that might have gotten overwritten?
    What is the exact error that you get? You can make a screenshot of the page and share it(saying the page is showing some kind of error like when… is not very specific and might miss a lot of important info)

    We’ll wait for the info…

    Hello, I finally solved it. It was a weird hiccup in the server. I ended recompiling Apache and PHP several times with different setup combinations until I figured out that the setting from cPanel that allow to “Silence Deprecated PHP Errors” was colliding with the natural error catcher in the core of WP. Once I recompiled the system without using that option, voila.
    (Finally. It was driving me nuts.)
    Thanks for watching.
