Issue resolved now

Resolved. Turned out to be something on the server.

PHP 5.2 reached “End of life” several years ago.
I would not recomend anyone go that far back.
PHP 5.6 and 7.0 supported for critical security issues only.
PHP 7.1 is the current version.

http://php.net/supported-versions.php

If you can I would try 5.6, also I would contact the vendor about the issue you are having.

hmm. I’m on Chillidog Hosting (@barchard What is our PHP version?) and can’t imagine I’m not updated to the latest PHP. My Formloom 3 page is fine and my CAPTCHA shows up… https://lisasandlerphotography.com/contact/

Thx for the correx. I should have written 5.6.

afaik Chilidog does not update php automatically, i imagine so things that require an older version do not get broken. So best to check your CPanel and see what version you’re on.


(Lisa Sandler) #7

huh. ok. thx Dave. What do I click on in Cpanel? There are several php thingys lol


(David) #8

It’s Software > MultiPhp Manager You’re then given a choice of which php version you can select.


(Lisa Sandler) #9

thanks. So should I change it? Worried as @gnosismedia mentions above…


(David) #10

You can update it and then test your form and see if it still works. If not, just change it back. It’s pretty much instantaneous i think, but maybe wait a few minutes before testing. You can also check if any other stacks that use php are still working OK.


(Lisa Sandler) #11

thanks. Seems to be working ok.


(Gregory Barchard) #13

I remove php versions as they reach end of life. You can choose between 5.6, 7, and 7.1 at the moment.


(Gregory Barchard) #14

Yes it’s instant. That’s the beauty in it :slight_smile:


(Lisa Sandler) #15

As usual, Greg, everything is easy with you and Chillidog :slight_smile: I don’t see any problems.


(Doug Bennett) #16

If you have a test PHP page, you can add this code to an HTML stack:

<?php
echo 'Current PHP version: ' . phpversion();
?>

It will show you the PHP version.
If you want all the info(pages), there is add this code:

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

…or you can use Joe Workman’s Server Info stack for more comprehensive, very detailed info…


(Doug Bennett) #18

Rob,
Take a try at PHPInfo above, it gives you everything possible to get from the server. Pages and pages of info.


(Rob D) #19

Thanks, Doug, I will try it, although Server Info stack gives me more information than I know what to do with it… :relaxed:

Hello Everyone,

Please ignore this post as it is totally FALSE. Our demo form is running on PHP 7 and works just fine.

http://yabdab.com/demo/formloom/

The original poster’s form may have stopped working after the PHP switch, but that does not necessarily mean that PHP 7 does not work.

It could be anything from incorrect session settings or required modules not being installed.

The poster never sent me the url to a non-working page so I was unable to verify the issues causing his capthca to stop working.


(Lisa Sandler) #21

Works fine for me as well.

That I do not know…
@yabdab can you answer?
