WXforum.net updated to PHP 7.2
« on: July 21, 2018, 05:02:16 PM »
I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade the PHP from 5.6 to 7.2 today.

Please report any anomalies you may find due to this upgrade of PHP.  We are on the current release of SMF 2.0.15 and the mods are up-to-date.

Best regards,
Ken

If this is the latest version of SMF isn't  it weird that there is still ICQ, YIM, AIM, and MSN messenger code in the program. All of these are defunct.

True, all those messenger links are ghosts from the past.  PHP 7.2 brought a couple of headaches for me with addressing an ever-expanding PHP Deprecated messages both in the error_log and the SMF errorlog.  Looks like they used create_function() calls a lot, and that (along with each() ) is deprecated in PHP 7.2.

A quick change to php.ini to suppress deprecated errata and a change to Sources/Errors.php to not log E_DEPRECATED errata stemmed the flood of error messages clogging both logs. 

Other than that hickup, the forum seems to be performing normally after the upgrade of PHP.
