Local DataAssist Pages Not Loading in OS X 10.8

Local DataAssist Pages Not Loading in OS X 10.8

Okay, this is odd. I have some pages I created a while ago using eCart and DataAssist 2.x that work fine off our host (CentOS shared hosting environment, PHP 5.2). However, it seems that since upgrading to Mountain Lion the pages won't load locally. No MySQL errors, but if I remove the include for WA_AppBuilder_PHP.php the page will load fine.

More details: I've moved development from Dreamweaver to Coda and uninstalled Dreamweaver. Thinking that was the problem I reinstalled Dreamweaver, deleted the MacFile cache per Webassist instructions. The pages still will not load locally. Also, local PHP version is 5.3.

Any ideas on what would be wrong are greatly appreciated.

Richard

EDIT: Just did a simple test where I commented out the include for library.php and everything loaded. Not sure what in that file is failing, but it looks to be the culprit.

do the pages show as a blank screen?

a blank page means that a php error is occurring but error reporting is turned off.

to turn error reporting on, add the following code at line 1:

php:
<?php
error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



once we know what the error is, we will be able to troubleshoot the cause.

Hi Jason,
Thanks for the reply. I pasted the error reporting lines into my main page and into library.php, this is what came up:

Warning: mysql_pconnect(): MySQL server has gone away in /Users/richard/Sites/svn/EmmaStine.com/Connections/connEmmaStine.php on line 10
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /Users/richard/Sites/svn/EmmaStine.com/WA_DataAssist/library.php on line 13

Any idea what would be causing this?

in the Connections/connEmmaStine.php file, line 10 creates the connection to the database using mysql_pconnect()

try changing:
mysql_pconnect(...

to:
mysql_connect(....

Thanks for the help. Another question, will this cause any issues on our live server?

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /Users/richard/Sites/svn/EmmaStine.com/WA_DataAssist/library.php on line 11

I finally had a chance to look at this issue on my local OS X 10.8 machine. With the update to 10.8 Apple changed how Apache is setup, and line 11 in library.php of Data Assist sets the directory name using PHP_SELF. Well, if you don't have everything setup in your user.conf file located in /etc/apache2/users then this file just hangs. I seem to have added the config info necessary to have everything running correctly. Why nothing else broke I have no idea.

FYI-You have to add a <VirtualHost *.80> entry for localhost
