Hi!
Anyone on this?
For information I checked where I got this file:
(downloaded from joomla official website)
it is in "Joomla_1.5.3-Stable-Full_Package" and the exact file:
Joomla_1.5.3-Stable-Full_Package\administrator\components\com_admin\tmpl\sysinfo_config.php

contains this " { " by default!!!

It seems a bug but then!? Maybe its normal and its another issue, I don't know!

Hi! yes I saw...
I tried to "close" the other one by showing "resolve" and now its like this bug report!

But here my last message:
viewtopic.php?f=429&t=288324

To make it simple, I know I tried the old config file and it would not work, but the error message appears with the original 1.5.3 full package, and seems a bug.

It might just be a "{" written by mistake but then it might have some hidden consequences I do not know!

Hope that helps!

Hi,
Ok, but I confirm the message is not here anymore after removing that "{"...
I do not know the consequences from it though!
I will not post the phpinfo output as its very long and might be unsafe?

I will need to know if its not a bug as I posted on this and the french joomla official forum, that it can be corrected by removing that "{" :-[ I do not want to corrupt everyones joomla...

Hi
I have had this same error and removing { has worked for me.

I have no idea what other effects it may have had.

Hi!
It took me ages but I have made all the tests for you, alon with uploading the edited config files, refreshing, etc...
I have made the printscreen for you:

1) One test with the "{ "back again:
i have made 2 print screen as it did not fit, they are called bug1 and bug2: we can see a lot of error messages. This was my original problem!

Image
Image

2) I have commented like you suggested and put: "\{" (without double quote): it makes like a weird grey box (in bug3.jpg)

Image
3) I have removed the "\{" and put nothing like I did before: everything SEEMS normal, but then I don't know: its in bug4.jpg

Image
:)

I still tend to think it is a bug, but I might not know!

I think this might be a php bug more than anything else, I'll test with a few different versions later in the week to see how I go.

Good evening!

Cool, no ideas but if we can spot a bug thats good work!
By the way, I have made a test for you:
I used PHP Version 5.2.5 rather than the php Version 4.4.8 Before:
I confirm that in joomla I could see PHP Version 5.2.5, but yet, still there is the same error if I add this "{" ...
If I remove it, still no error messages!

So if its php version error, its not linked to 4.4. or 5.2.5
! :pop

I update this bug report.
A friend of mine also tried joomla 1.5.3 and he got exactly the same error!
We have the same hosting, that might be a big clue!!!
he downloaded as well the files from the official Joomla website.

I have a box where I've built PHP 5.2.5 from the source directly from php.net and didn't encounter any problems. What it might be is that there is something strange that your hosting company has done, however with stock PHP from PHP itself I cannot replicate this issue.

Note: As this does not happen in any way we've tried to duplicate it, it must be due to circumstances at the host. Unable to confirm.
