The most recent update to 8.7.1 resulted in this error message:
“Fatal error: Call to undefined function array_replace() in /home/content/38/4516038/html/wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/class.geo.php on line 602” and I can no longer access any area of the site without getting this message. I am uploading via FTP my most recent backup (yesterday) and researching how to restore the site without being able to go through the WP dashboard. I don’t know what version of WP or PHP I had off the top of my head, and I can’t access the dashboard to get that info. Um….. help??12/14/2017 at 12:47 pm #444048Beth TindallGuest
update: I disabled the Connections plugin via FTP, and the site works again. I’ll wait a bit before I try the update again.12/14/2017 at 2:45 pm #444050Steven ZahmKeymaster
The version of PHP your web host is running and old unsupported and possibly insecure version of PHP. I suspect the version you are running is 5.2 which has not been supported for many years now. I’d ask them to update it. WordPress recommends 7.2. I would recommend 7.1 as 7.2 was just released so plugins may not yet be 100% compatible.
That said, I do try to avoid using modern features in PHP for the broadest compatibility.
I actually do not even have the ability to test in such an old version any longer. If you can give me a WP admin login and a FTP login I’ll be able to apply and test an alternative to the array_replace() function. This is basic PHP function introduced in version 5.3 and it is function I now need to use. I might be able to add and use a backward compatible version.
The details can be posted here as a private reply.12/14/2017 at 7:58 pm #444139Beth TindallGuest
Thanks, I’ll check with the hosting company about updating the PHP.
