Installation Tests Failing with latest PHP7.0

Post by zoomiest » 14 Jan 2018, 05:40

I just moved my cats installation to a new vps, and I am having trouble with the installation wizard.

Test Results
PHP version is 7.0.22-0ubuntu0.16.04.1.
PHP.ini: magic_quotes_runtime is disabled.
PHP.ini: register_globals is disabled.


PHP MySQL extension (mysql) is not loaded.
Check your settings in php.ini.
Under certain Linux / BSD distributions, the PHP MySQL extension is a separate package.
Debian: Run "apt-get install php5-mysql" and restart your webserver.
FreeBSD: Install the php5-mysql port, or configure MySQL support in the php-extensions port and restart your webserver.


PHP Sessions extension (session) is loaded.
PHP PCRE regular expressions extension (pcre) is loaded.
PHP CType string classification extension (ctype) is loaded.
PHP GD image manipulation library extension (gd) is loaded.


PHP SOAP extension (soap) is not loaded.
Check your settings in php.ini.
CATS Open Source will function without SOAP, but CATS Professional functionality will not be supported.
Under certain Linux / BSD distributions, the PHP SOAP extension is a separate package.
Ubuntu: Run "apt-get install php-soap" and restart your webserver.
Debian: Run "apt-get install php5-soap" and restart your webserver.
FreeBSD: Install the php5-soap port, or configure SOAP support in the php-extensions port and restart your webserver.


Directory ./attachments/ is readable (permissions: 0755).
Directory ./attachments/ is writeable (permissions: 0755).
Creating a file within ./attachments/ succeeded.
Directories can be created inside ./attachments//.
Configuration file ./config.php is writable.
Creating a file within ./ succeeded.


So, this may have been solved in recent releases. I am working off a forked version that broke off at 0.9.2 I think.
How can I get past these tests, so I can get the last steps of the installation?

Yes, I have installed php-soap
Yes, I have installed php7.0-mysql

Perhaps I have to blow this installation away, and just use a historic version of the LAMP stack... Thoughts? Help? Thank you, in advance!

I have
7.0.22-0ubuntu0.16.04.1
Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Linux 16.04

Hey Zoomiest - long time no see! PHP v7.x isn't yet supported - the release notes state that the support envelope is from PHP 5.5 through to PHP 5.6.27

There is slow sub-project to test PHP v7 and get it 100% but it's not moved in some time.
