500 errors with Horde and Server-Manager
« on: December 15, 2018, 04:26:20 PM »
We have noticed a number of posts with these errors.

Having tested this it seems the primary issue is due to enabling PHP-SCL version 7.x globally which appears to break the stock Horde 3 due to stricter checking and changing methods in PHP 7.x

It seems that the Server-Manager itself is OK with globally enabling PHP 7.x

I will log a bug for this and we will have to see if we can possibly patch Horde.

As a stop gap to prevent this happening only enable PHP on an ibay and not globally, or install the updated Horde 5 (see the Wiki)

To get back to a standard installation you can do the following:

Global - set disabled where $phpver is php70/php71/php72/php73

Code: [Select]
config setprop $phpver PhpModule disabled
signal-event php-update

e.g.
Code: [Select]
config setprop php70 PhpModule disabled
signal-event php-update


This is the manual configuration for an individual ibay which should be OK:

Code: [Select]
db {$ibayname} setprop PhpVersion disabled|enabled
signal-event php-update

Please note that some of the issues reported are a result of wrongly enabled repositories. Care should be taken not to confuse issues.

Please make sure you only have the recommended repos enabled permanently.
smetest and  smeupdates-testing should NEVER be permanently enabled on a production server under any circumstances.

If you experience any issues the first thing to do is check your server logs.

tailf /var/log/messages
tailf /var/log/httpd/error_log
tailf  /var/log/httpd/admin_error_log

I'll post back here with more information as we have it.
