Failed loading Zend extension '' after upgrade to 2.4.4-p1

  • Hi!

    I've had trouble updating from 2.4.3 to 2.4.4 recently.
    With a bit of googling, I managed to get it up and running, but I'm now getting errors on the dashboard:

    Crash report begins.  Anonymous machine information:
    FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p4 #2 b00c407ba5d(RELENG_2_4_4): Mon Nov 26 11:41:48 EST 2018
    Crash report details:
    PHP Errors:

    No FreeBSD crash data found.

    I had a look into the mentioned directory and both and have a zero filesize.

    What can I do to fix this issue?

    Kind Regards,

    Those files are not a part of 2.4.4, they must have been left over from something else before the upgrade.

    Make sure there are no files left over for xdebug under /usr/local/etc/php/. If there are, remove them.

  • Hi Jimp,

    there was an ext-20-xdebug.ini there. I moved it out of the way, error seems to be gone.

    Thank you and kind regards,
