Problem after upgrade to php 7.1

We are using NorrCompetition 1.6.1. We recently upgraded our php version to 7.1 and it was no longer possible to upload images without an error. We went back to php 5.6 so the uploads will again work.

My pre-sale question is: does the newest 1.6.2 of Norr Competition address and correct this php version issue? If so, I will gladly sign on for another year.

Thanks

Probably it is not connected with old version of NC. If you will provide an error message that you have then it could be possible to understand why this issue happens.

May be some PHP extensions are missing on 7.1 that was compiled with 5.6.

Best regards,
Dmitry

Hello Dmitry,
Here is attached screen capture. When selecting the image from the folder (image is well under size limitations, and works when I change back to php5.6), the message File is uploading, Please wait, and the animation starts, and within a second changes to the unspecified error shown in screen grab.

Thank you for your consideration in examining this issue.

It looks like the issue we already fixed in version 1.7.2.

I also have to note the cURL must be enabled on your server.

Probably cURL is disabled in PHP 7.1 settings and enabled in PHP 5.6. Please check it out.

Hello Eugene,
I had not thought to check that; however, if my poor php ability is correct it seems that cURL is working.
I created and ran the attached php file, and with php 5.6 or php 7.1 I receive this reply: cURL is installed on this server

I'm not sure it attached; here is the script:
<?php

// Script to test if the CURL extension is installed on this server

// Define function to test
function _is_curl_installed() {
if (in_array ('curl', get_loaded_extensions())) {
return true;
}
else {
return false;
}
}

// Ouput text to user based on test
if (_is_curl_installed()) {
echo "cURL is <span style=\"color:blue\">installed</span> on this server";
} else {
echo "cURL is NOT <span style=\"color:red\">installed</span> on this server";
}
?>

Well,
Okay, according to your report, the cURL is enabled and it is caused the issue. However, there was the image uploading issue fixed in NC 1.7.2 (as I mentioned above).

I would recommend to update Joomla to 3.8.8 and install the latest version of NorrCompetition. It works as a clock on PHP 7.

Thank you. I am getting set to redo the site completely this summer. New applications and templates. But, we have found nothing as good as NorrCompetition for photo sharing and reviewing, so I will be upgrading during that process. I'm requesting our organization to let me go for the lifetime bundle.

You guys are great. You already have my stellar review on JED (I think I was the first one). Keep up the excellent work.
