8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

Have I got a new 8192 error? I’ve moved to Manjaro and PHP 8.1 is the default in the Lamp stack. Setting up a new localhost, I just altered the time in Preferences and got this error message repeated many times. There’s something about it on Stack Overflow so perhaps you already have it sorted?

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

Are you running Textpattern 4.8.8?

If yes, does the error message say anything else ? Usually that output is preceded by a message like “Error bla bla bla” that would provide some more context.

BTW – I can’t reproduce your error here.

Yes, running 4.8.8. The error message above is on some back end pages. For example, there are 29 variations of this in Preferences:

textpattern/include/txp_prefs.php:376 dateformats()

All those above have these 2 lines preceding each:

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

This most probably means that PHP Intl extension is not enabled on your server. What date format are you using, btw?

The only thing we might do to avoid warnings in this case is switching all dates to English, but I’m not sure this would fit everyone.

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

Thanks etc.

I’ve uncommented Intl in php.ini like so:
extension=intl

There’s this further down and I’ve uncommented the last line like so:

[intl]
;intl.default_locale =
; This directive allows you to produce PHP errors when some error
; happens within intl functions. The value is the level of the error produced.
; Default is 0, which does not produce any errors.
;intl.error_level = E_WARNING
intl.use_exceptions = 0

Restarted Apache like so:
sudo systemctl restart httpd

But I’m still getting error messages.

(The Manjaro instructions I followed to setup my Lamp stack are different to what I’ve used previously and don’t use /etc/apache2/sites-available but use httpd with Apache, hence I haven’t used sudo service apache2 restart or suchlike to restart Apache.)

BTW, I’ve tried various date formats and still get all errors and I’m on %Oe %B %Y at the moment.

Don’t know if this helps. In Write, I created a new article and when I clicked Publish I got this popup message:

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

Weird. Does your PHP info list intl extension as enabled?

You can try to manually set the date format to jS F Y. This should force txp to use date() function instead of strftime().

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

Thank you, Oleg. intl is enabled. In a long list under Configure Command, here is part of it:
'--enable-gd=shared' '--enable-intl=shared' '--enable-mbstring'

I tried setting the date format to jS F Y but no joy. So I tried hours/days ago. No joy. Rebooted. No joy. Tried again with jS F Y. No joy. So rebooted again. Tried again. JOY!!! Very stubborn but so am I and your advice worked eventually :-)

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

So you now can use any date and time format? Without errors, that is…

I thought restarting the HTTP daemon would be enough, or is there some caching at work ?

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

Yes, I’ve tried most date formats and they all work without errors.
The one that brought on the error messages was %Oe %b %y (10 Nov 22)
Oleg’s code of jS F Y produces 10th November 2022.

Neither of those are listed in the default dropdown but both now work.

I’ve refreshed the cache after each one and no errors are shown. I refreshed the cache previously many times but Firefox seemingly doesn’t respond well to back end or background stuff. Actually Firefox caused me to move to Manjaro because I was tired of its quirks and constant updates (I can no longer see a way to stop updates) When I deleted it, to get a fresh installation, it wouldn’t go away completely. So I purged it, as you do with Linux, and it crashed the system and I was unable to get to a desktop again after trying all kinds of things. It had happened before but this time must have corrupted something, so I’d had enough and decided on a change. Lost some files. But that’s another story… Going to try Vivaldi again, cos allegedly Vivaldi has now solved its Gargoyle privacy incompatabilities. But that’s another story…

I’ll let you know if any similar errors appear in the future but it seems intl was the problem.

Re: 8192 "Function strftime() is deprecated" SOLVED

I spoke a bit too soon. I changed to Live production status somewhere along the line and in Live, the error messages indeed to do not appear. But in Testing and Debugging mode they are all still there.

Are you sure? This means you attempt to enable it, but what if the ICU library is missing or outdated?

You should see something like this in Diagnostics:

Intl extension: 8.1
