Hello Massimo,

Thank you for answer.

I am sorry your having troubles.

I see now that your currently running a version of PHP which is not supported by your current version of eZ publish.

To solve this problem you will need to upgrade eZ Publish to the 2014.11 Community Build which is the first version which introduced PHP 5.4.x+ compatibility.

What I think has happened is until recently you were running a version of PHP which was compatible with your current version of eZ Publish, then without warning your hosting server was upgraded (possibly by your provider or server administrator) to use the newer version of PHP and thus caused this version compatibility problem.

Upgrading to the 2014.11 Community Build (eZ Publish Platform 5.4+) will solve this problem.

Best wishes! Apologies for my late reply.

Just one more question:
Which was the last supported php-version for eZ Publish "Community Project 2012.6"?

Hello Massimo,

Few weeks ago, I had some troubles like yours. I used the same Community version and I'll quote a part of the answer given to me :

"the community build your using was not designed to run on anything past 5.3"

You can find the complete post here :

Hello Massimo,

The answer is PHP 5.3 as documented on the download page,

But -no one- should intentionally avoid an eZ Publish upgrade by reverting an already in place PHP upgrade to a lower version of PHP ... especially since PHP 5.3 has been unsupported for some time now.

Vendors, server hosting providers and GNU/Linux distributions are all moving forward to support the -stable- release of PHP and discontinuing support of PHP 5.3 ... and this should make it clear to you that it would be a mistake to downgrade PHP instead of upgrading eZ Publish.

The right action for you to take is to upgrade, which is not very hard to do at all.

Best wishes
