  • Resolved sancukosan



    We have some issues with the plugin. Every time you access the dashboard, the following error in error.log appears:

    'cat' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    This is what we get in debug.log:

    PHP Notice: Only variables should be passed by reference in C:\Bitnami\wordpress-4.9.7-0\apps\wordpress\htdocs\wp-content\plugins\wp-cerber\cerber-load.php on line 5377

    Not sure if this 2 errors are connected.

    Please can you provide us a solution for this.

    Many thanks

  • “cat” is a UNIX program, and you seem to be running Bitnami under Windows. As for the PHP notice it could be connected with Windows again, but I can’t say for sure.

    Errors are not related to each other. The first one is not caused by the plugin. I can comment on the second one only. It will be fixed in the version soon. if it somehow affects the website, you just need to add this line: php_flag display_errors off to the .htaccess file in the root folder of the website.

    What version of PHP are your website running on?

    Hi Gioni,

    I’m using PHP version 7.0.30.

    @dravokrankev1 Yes, I’m running Bitnami for Windows. Everything was fine until the installation of this plugin. I’m not familiar with this issue and I wasn’t sure where is it coming from, so that’s why I opened the ticket. But, after @gioni ‘s replay, that this 2 issues are not connected means that probably I’m wrong.

    I made some researches on Google and I saw that the issue is UNIX program, but I don’t know how it came up. Any suggestions how can I fix it?

    Anyway, Thanks for the answers!
