kb incompatible with mod libevent installed

Post by Tupsi » Sat Sep 01, 2018 16:17

I realise this is not a bug per se, but just a compatibility issue, but it would be nice if you could ajust your code, so that it runs with this php mod installed.


Installing https://pecl.php.net/package/event and activating the mod in your php config breaks kb.

Steps to reproduce:

1) install libevent with 'pecl install event'
2) activate it with 'extension=event.so'
3) kb site starts throwing 500 web server errors.Logs says

Code: Select all

PHP message: PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method Event::register() in /var/www/killboard.xyz.net/common/xajax/xajax.php:12
4) remove the extension line from your php config, reload/restart the config and it works again

great find, thank you!
That should be addressable by adding a PHP namespace definition to the event class, so it can be addressed unambiguously.
I'll look into that.

Best Regards,
