critical php errors

the pathauto module was generating a fatal error everytime you added or edited content on the site:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: ctype_alnum() in /var/www/groups.drupal.org/htdocs/sites/default/modules/pathauto/pathauto.module on line 280

merlinofchaos was around in #drupal on IRC, and disabled the pathauto module to at least get the site back into working at all.

also, every page on g.d.o has the following warning at the top:

Warning:  array_map(): The first argument, 'utf8_encode', should be either NULL or a valid callback in /var/www/groups.drupal.org/htdocs/includes/unicode.inc on line 284

furthermore, halkeye in #drupal reports he's been seeing this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: xml_parser_create() in /var/www/groups.drupal.org/htdocs/includes/xmlrpc.inc on line 164

(though i haven't personally ran into this myself). it's preventing him from being able to log in at all...

seems like the version of php running on the site hosting g.d.o is in sad shape. :(

not sure if this is the best place to report this, but i figured i'd give it a shot.

thanks,

solution for the pathauto problem

greggles's picture

Just to close the loop on this issue, the pathauto problem is tracked in an issue in the pathauto issue queue: http://drupal.org/node/20289

Basically the solution is to make sure that you are ctype installed (which most people should have) or to create your own equivalent of the function.
