Apologies if I’ve missed a similar thread on this. I’ve just installed Connections and when I added an entry I got the following error:
Warning: ini_set() has been disabled for security reasons in …/public_html/wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/php_class_upload/class.upload.php on line 3796Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at …/public_html/wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/php_class_upload/class.upload.php:3796) in…/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 876
Despite this I got the message that the entry was successful. Not being sure what to do I tried changing the setting to load scripts in the header and didn’t get the error when trying again. It seems though that after another couple test entries the error message is back, though the entries seem to register. Would you have an idea on what’s happening here?
Thanks for any help.04/16/2013 at 12:42 pm #257255Steven ZahmKeymaster
Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be able to help much. For some reason your webhost disabled the ini_set() PHP function. You might be able to override that if they allow you access to the php.ini file and if they don’t you may have to submit a help desk ticket to your web host asking them to enable this option.
Please let me know the result, thanks!04/16/2013 at 6:55 pm #257283Dan_MGuest
Hi Steven, thanks for the reply. My webhost says they do this as a security measure, and I will not be able to work-around it.
That being the case, how exactly am I affected? I’ll be using Connections as a job listing feature – details only, no user uploading, just info and an external link. Will I still be able to use the plugin?04/16/2013 at 8:38 pm #257288Steven ZahmKeymaster
That’s an interesting security measure, which host, may I ask?
This is actually a third party library using the ini_set() function and ironically they’re using it to prevent error notices.
So other than throwing that notice, it is not negatively affecting the functionality. There are two options. One, which is surprising that isn’t already enabled because ini_set() is disabled by the host, is to ask the host to configure PHP to suppress the notices to the error log instead of showing them on screen. The other is, edit the
file. Go to line 3796 and put an @ in front of ini_set. That will suppress the warning. And because it is suppress, the second warning will not occur. I’ll try to remember to add it myself so it is included in the next update.
