Support » Plugin: Better Search Replace » No display of dry run results on PHP 7

  • On two different sites I am not able to see the dry run results when the PHP version of the site is 7.0.16 or higher. These sites are on Siteground hosting, which is typically excellent.

    Is the plugin compatible with PHP 7?

    Thanks for plugin! It usually runs flawlessly and is a valuable tool.

  • It appears it may not be entirely compatible with PHP 7:

    FILE: /plugins/better-search-replace/includes/class-bsr-compatibility.php

    We need to upgrade our web server to PHP 7. Could the plugin author advise?

    Yep, dry run for me runs then clears the form – no results

    Hi @gfields108 and @patbell101,

    I tested this out and wasn’t able to replicate this, even on PHP 7. If you’re still running into this issue, can you please reach out via https://bettersearchreplace.com/plugin-support/ with the diagnostic information from the Better Search Replace Help tab?

    @tamarakorr The warning that you’re seeing with the PHP7 compatibility scan is a false positive due to some compatibility code and can be ignored – the plugin should run normally on PHP 7.

    Done that. Hope it helps. imt a different plugin “Search and Replace” dry run does work.
