phpBB and support for php 7.2.4

Post by danielwimhed »

If this topic here is inappropiate then delete it.

I have a question if phpBB will work with php 7.2.4 and if not, are there ppl now working on this? What are the problems with php 7.2.4?

I'm bound to use Windows 2016 Server and it's version of IIS, and the MSSQL and PHP installation works best with PHP 7.2.4 in 64 bit environment.

I'm getting this error

phpBB 3.2.2 supports php 7.2 - https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.2.2

As 7.2.4 is a security release, there should be no problem with it.

Can you try phpbb 3.2.3RC1? I think there is a bug in 3.2.2 that prevents it from working

A simple question, can I just delete all files since the forum contains nothing and just reinstall everything using the RC1 ? How will the installprocess react to the fact that the database and the tables already exist?

Just like another update.
Keep:
  • The config.php file
    The images/ directory
    The ext/ directory
    The files/ directory
    The store/ directory
Read the /docs/install.html file

I looked in the file that has the error with TextPad and it's this line

Code: Select all

return (count($row)) ? $row : false;
The whole function looks like this

Code: Select all

/**
	* {@inheritDoc}
	*/
	function sql_fetchrow($query_id = false)
	{
		global $cache;

		if ($query_id === false)
		{
			$query_id = $this->query_result;
		}

		if ($cache && $cache->sql_exists($query_id))
		{
			return $cache->sql_fetchrow($query_id);
		}

		if (!$query_id)
		{
			return false;
		}

		$row = sqlsrv_fetch_array($query_id, SQLSRV_FETCH_ASSOC);

		if ($row)
		{
			foreach ($row as $key => $value)
			{
				$row[$key] = ($value === ' ' || $value === null) ? '' : $value;
			}

			// remove helper values from LIMIT queries
			if (isset($row['line2']))
			{
				unset($row['line2'], $row['line3']);
			}
		}
		return (count($row)) ? $row : false;
	}
