PHP version

Hi guys,

I have extracted the zip files from current develop branch to my server, which is running still on php 5.3.3. I cannot start this Friendica instance because I retrieve the following error: PHP parse error: Syntax error, unexpected '[' in /var/www/friendica_develop/include/bbcode.php on line 728
The related function 'bb_highlight()' was not yet included in Friendica 3.4.2, so it is something new maybe using a new PHP function?

what is the minimum PHP version needed for the current develop branch?

Kind regards,
Gerhard

My server was still on Debian 6.0 Squeeze with PHP 5.3.3. As this version recently lost the LTS support, I am currently performing an upgrade to the oldstable 7.0 Wheezy. Afterwards I will then perform the next step to upgrade to the current Debian 8.0 Jessie for having an up-to-date system again (at least what Debian understands for up-to-date).

I would suggest to still support the PHP version of Wheezy (PHP 5.4) until Jessie becomes oldstable, as it is still in Debian's LTS support.

Hi everyone,
I have upgraded my server to PHP 5.4 now (Debain Wheezy) and tested the Friendica develop branch. It is working now (at least the API calls relevant for my app). So 5.3 is too old for the current develop branch, but 5.4 works.

Sorry, I don't understand github

Hi guys,

My current Friendica server is still on 3.4.2 master, which I have extracted to my Apache folder from the zip file offered by github website some months ago (no bash command used). Now I want to have a separate folder on the same server with the current develop branch of Friendica (using a different database of course).

So I tried the following command in bash:
<code>/var/www/# git clone https://github.com/friendica/friendica.git friendica_develop</code>

The command copied the files from Github, so far so good. But then I have seen that the files are only from master branch and do not include the newest changes. So I need to switch to the 'develop' branch, which I have tried with the following code:
<code>/var/www/friendica_develop/# git checkout -b develop</code>

But this has not changed any file to the current develop version. I tried then to do a "git pull" to get the files, but this was quiting with an error and the same error occurred for... show more

Theme Frio - Thread Highlighting

Hallo Leute,

kann man für das oben genannte Theme ein Threat Highlighting aktivieren? Wenn ja wo?

Zur Erläuterung: Wenn ich beim Theme Vier, über die Benachrichtigungen eine Info bekomme, das jemand auf ein Posting geantwortet hat, werde ich ja entsprechend zu Posting geleitet und die Antwort wird kurz farblich hervorgehoben. Bei längeren Threads wird auch direkt zum Posting gesprungen.

Dieses Feature finde ich recht hilfreich, da es das Lesen enorm vereinfacht.

Oder gibt es dazu zu schon einen Issue?

API question

How is the API function direct_messages/conversation supposed to work? From my reading of the code I need the parent-uri from the conversation to request it. Staring at the JSON returns from the API direct_messages/all I miss that parent-uri.

Can somebody guide me?

The problem with cherry-pick is that one seems not be able to pick a merge, but has to pick every commit from the merge one-by-one.

This seems to have worked though... at least github is the opinion that the 3.5rc branch is mergeable into the master branch.

Just wanted to let you know that with the latest commits from the morning there were also changes to the API code of ~friendica ~friendica, which is causing problems with my installation with PHP7

API: XML is now generated without templates by annando · Pull Request #2682 · friendica/friendica



There are other nicer things as well and I can still post via the API. Just so you can choose and be warned ;-)

The XML part of the API was reworked. So as your client is using the JSON returns it should work fine I think.

Beitragsproblem & Warteschlange

Irgendwie wachsen die Probleme mit meinem Friendica Knoten in den letzten Wochen. Was mich dabei nur wundert, dass ich dort keine Updates oder ähnliches eingespielt habe. Ich habe lediglich alle alten Beiträge bis auf einen Monat löschen lassen. Und auch das nur über etliche Tage, da der Job sonst wegen Speicherproblemen immer abbrach.

In den letzten 1 bis 2 Wochen kommen Beiträge, Kommentare und auch Fotos, gar nicht erst bei den Abonnenten an. Gerade erst heute morgen an @Tobias einen Kommentar abgesetzt. Scheint nicht angekommen zu sein. Ein paar Stunden später zum gleichen Posting erneut etwas gepostet, das kommt dann wieder an.

Weiterhin über einen Forenaccount auf meinem Knoten etwas gepostet. Ein Teil der Kommentare sind zwar beim Ursrpungsposting zu finden, schaue ich aber in meiner Timeline, fehlen die Kommentare komplett.

Zusätzlich wächst meine DB Warteschlange ziemlich an im Vergleich zu früher. Dort steh... show more

Git Pull necessary if you use #Friendica developer branch

For anyone who did not get the information by the other posts in @Friendica Support yet, please do a git pull in order to fix a 'severe' bug.

The bug is related to the worker and delivery of post and private messages was not working since sometime during last weekend till approximately 4 hours ago.

Hoster gesucht (VServer mit 16-32 GB Hauptspeicher)

@Friendica Support (This post is held in German since I'm searching for a german based hoster)

Ich bin langsam echt stinkig und verdammt wütend auf Strato. Seit letzter Woche Dienstag war das System sehr langsam, seit heute 14:30 ist es komplett offline. Der Support schweigt sich auch aus und meine Geduld ist am Ende.

Ich habe zum Glück einen monatlich kündbaren Vertrag (ich wusste wohl warum) und überlege nun, auf einen anderen Hoster umzusteigen, sobald ich irgendwann mal wieder Zugriff auf meine Systeme habe.

Ich suche einen Hoster für VServer mit 16-32 GB Hauptspeicher. Ich ziehe VServer vor, da die Administratoren so bei Hardware-Problemen einfach die virtuelle Maschine umziehen lassen können. Bei "echten" Servern kann dagegen ein Hardware-Problem ein echtes Problem darstellen.

Es muss ein Hoster sein, der eine professionelle Hardware verwendet, redundante Storage-Systeme, etc.

@Friendica Support Since 14:30 CEST these servers are down. It is a technical issue with my hoster. I have contacted the support (both per mail and per phone). I really hope, that they will fix it today.

Currently I'm having too much issues with this hoster and I'm considering yet another change ...

Current state: Hopefully I can do a restore tonight. But because of the I/O problems I had for a week, my newest database backup is a week old. (Although normally I'm doing daily database backups). If I'm having luck then the database will be from 26.7. - or 19.7 if I don't have luck.

So, to conclude my tests with git bisect that @Fabio mentioned. For me the last working point in the development branch is commit Some more information about the current queue status of the worker. Which you can get with
git checkout fb447e84ee64243b00332329b72d85d726fd2119
just in case someone on develop branch is stuck in the same situation..

The one bisect iteration ended with Reverted some strange stuff the other with Processing of high priority processes.

For me it looks like, that the workers don't get anything into their queue to deliver with the result, that nothing is distributed to the contacts. This is dependent of posting a top level entry or making a comment.

The friendica.log seems not to indicate a hint, but if you have something for looking for I'd gladly do so. The php.log does only contain a warning for an unrelated thing.

friendi.ca as a Tumblr or Blogger site?

@Friendica Support We need a better way to communicate to new users, to interested persons, to persons who ask themselves if Friendica is still living, etc.

Of course we could try to set this up on on some of our servers or we could try to modernize the existing site friendica.com - but it seems as if we don't have designers in our community with enough spare time. And I really don't want to wait any longer.

So what about using a service like blogger.com or tumblr.com for this? We can use them with custom domains for free and there are many different themes available and it is possible to work with many different user and admin accounts. Yes, these services are owned by Yahoo and Google - but we wouldn't store any sensitive material on it. And it would be really easy to set up. And the advantage is that it is hosted on a server system that is independent from any of us.

We could post news on it (for example via Friendica if we chose Tumblr) and stat... show more

Feature Request for RSS feed reshares as user posts, as for example in @earthquake or @Arte Plus 7 (inoffiziell) I would like an option to have a link to the origin website. Anything would be fine, either to the blogpost reshared or to the website, plain static, just enter it for the Feed in the contact settings, just anything. Main reason is @Piratenpartei News (NRW) which shares lots of feeds from different blogs, but sometimes it is not possible at all to see where the post is originating. So some static possibility to append some link to each imported post would be fine.

Anyone else would like some function like this? I will write a request in Github if I get some positive feedback. If you find better words like I did above then help me to explain. ;-)

@Friendica Support just sharing the latest fun with my webserver that only hosts my Friendica.

I realized that the loading speed of Friendica was going down lately, I did not know what is the problem, but then happend to just run "df -h" and saw that /tmp was full, that was because for some reason I installed imagemagick some days ago and that used the 4GB of Space on /tmp.

Not a big problem, but annoying. I now tried to set a 2 GB disk cap and 1 GB memory cap, lets see if that works. Server is back to 0.4s loading time instead of 5-6s
