The Shortlist #10: PHP modules

I really just meant to post a quick note this morning on two gotchas I tripped over when trying to integrate the cell phone and my FreeBSD Jail of WordPress.

Bah. Good luck with that.

Error #1: WordPress detonates when I try to post and becomes unresponsive. /var/log/nginx/error.log shows:

PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function ctype_digit()

Bah, why did the WP->Twitter plugin explode on this today? I’m assuming that PHP 7.2 has changed its packaging on FreeBSD so … build and install php72-ctype. Let’s try this again.

Error #2: WordPress detonates when I try to post and becomes unresponsive. /var/log/nginx/error.log shows:

PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function filter_var()

Same kind of deal. More explosions in the WP->Twitter plugin. Build and install php72-filter. Excellent. I can now annoy everyone with my ignorance again.
