Support » Plugin: WP RSS Aggregator » PHP 7.2 Compatibility

  • Resolved Matt Ryan


    The plugin is still reporting an error when running the PHP Compatibility Checker plugin used by a few major hosting companies (LiquidWeb and WPEngine to name a couple). If the plugin is truely compatible, can you request your plugin be added to the [compatibility checker whitelist]( of safe plugins.

    Report from today:
    FILE: /home/s1/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-rss-aggregator/includes/system-info.php
    81 | WARNING | INI directive ‘safe_mode’ is deprecated since PHP 5.3 and removed since PHP 5.4
    244 | ERROR | Extension ‘mysql_’ is deprecated since PHP 5.5 and removed since PHP 7.0; Use mysqli instead

    Thanks for reaching out!

    In regards to PHP 7.2, and the warnings you have shared when WP_Debug is set to enabled, these do not affect functionality based on our tests and those of other users.

    We would also like to let you know that we have shared this information with our developers and will look into them again in the near future.

    Hi @renzms

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    The report is generated when the PHP Compatibility plugin ( is run on a website with your plugin activated. The report is generated regardless of the state of WP_DEBUG.

    A few hosting companies I work with, Liquid Web, Flywheel, WP Engine, for example, all recommend using that compatibility report when deciding whether or not the website can run on PHP 7.2. Liquid Web runs this automatically when you try to upgrade to PHP 7.2 and will not process the upgrade until the plugins marked as failing are either fixed, or removed.

    Some plugins, like yours, do report false positives if the code that does not meet PHP 7.2 spec, and the code is not generally executed. Not saying your code won’t work on 7.2, its just that it references PHP functionality that has been deprecated.

    The whitelist for the compatibility plugin enables you to insure your users that can can safely update their sites to 7.2 and still keep your fine plugin activated.

    You can close this out. I performed tests to insure the plugin works and let my customer’s host know it was okay to permit the PHP 7.2 upgrade to move forward.

    All the best,
    Matt Ryan
