Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

Okay – new install: http://likelikebaby.com/

Pre-flight check

Image directory is not writable: /var/www/images
File directory path is not writable: /var/www/files ?

The following PHP functions (which may be necessary to run Textpattern) are disabled on your server: pcntl_alarm, pcntl_fork, pcntl_waitpid, pcntl_wait, pcntl_wifexited, pcntl_wifstopped, pcntl_wifsignaled, pcntl_wexitstatus, pcntl_wtermsig, pcntl_wstopsig, pcntl_signal, pcntl_signal_dispatch, pcntl_get_last_error, pcntl_strerror, pcntl_sigprocmask, pcntl_sigwaitinfo, pcntl_sigtimedwait, pcntl_exec, pcntl_getpriority, pcntl_setpriority,

In my case, I fixed the folders permissions through chown (this is a Digital Ocean Droplet).

My question is – do we need to keep the PHP functions message when my understanding is these only apply to using PHP from the command line?

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

Doing a new install via svn checkout:

svn checkout http://textpattern.googlecode.com/svn/releases/4.5.7/source

…there are a few presentational discrepancies in the default content that, I think, have already been resolved in previously closed issues. For example, the timestamp of Donald’s comment is thousands of days old. This was raised as issue 305 and fixed in r4575. I raised issue 427 with a patch to bring it into line, then I spotted that Txp Resources is still in the sidebar, which was raised originally as issue 307 and fixed in r4540. There may be more stuff, I haven’t checked yet, and I don’t want to pollute the issue tracker with patches if I’m missing something obvious.

Both of these presentational fixes were made to the 4.x branch, but don’t appear to have made it to the 4.5 branch. Considering the major.minor.patch release approach, these both appear to be in the patch section. Is this an oversight or are they really going to be in the release until the next minor release?

If I’m misunderstanding the development approach, then I would appreciate a correction.

Thank you in advance.

That line is common with all the DO droplets I’ve installed to where PHP5 has been installed with apt-get from the default repositories, and those modules are irrelevant to Textpattern. There are occasions, however, that non-pcntl_* modules are listed that do affect Textpattern, and that’s where the diagnostics are useful.

You’re right that they’re only presentational and should be included in the 4.5.x branch. Probably just an oversight as I don’t think it was a regression in the recent setup changes… at least I hope not :-o We probably intended to push them to 4.5.x, but maybe ‘cos they weren’t backported immediately at the time they got swept out of sight under other commits.

Sorry they didn’t filter back this far. I’ll tend to those for ya. If you spot any other such already-fixes that would benefit being in 4.5.x, please let us know.

Good work guys. I was starting to worry TXP had been abandoned. Propeller are sharing ten years in the biz with Textpattern!

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.5.7 released

Until now I have updated three sites from Textpattern 4.5.5 to 4.5.7. There were no problems except these:

In two of the three sites I can’t access to Preferences > Language. The diagnostics report a problem with the access to the RPC-Server.

Between the three installations are now differences, only small differences between the servers, all by the same hosting company.

The “good” site: PHP-Version: 5.2.17, MySQL: 5.5.28-

First “bad” site: PHP-Version: 5.3.28, MySQL: 5.5.28

Second “bad” site: PHP-Version: 5.5.10, MySQL: 5.5.28
