Custom Captive Portal Page not working after upgrade to 2.0.3

  • Hi all,

    Just upgraded to 2.0.3, and reloaded the old configuration from my 2.0.1.  Funny thing - my captive portal page has been php for quite some time and worked without issue.  After the upgrade the html portion displays fine, but I get the error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /var/etc/captiveportal.html

    Ok, so the captive portal is(n't) doing two things:

    1)  it renames my index-cp.php to captiveportal.html
    2)  it refuses to parse php code in that page.

    I tried simply renaming the file and got a blank screen when I roloaded the captive portal page.

    Now really folks, is this sort of thing necessary?  What happened to php in 2.0.3?

    It has always renamed the page to captiveportal.html, that's normal and it should still parse PHP code in the page there.

    MySQL support isn't enabled in PHP to start with, you have to "touch /etc/php_dynamodules/mysql" and then run /etc/rc.php_ini_setup

    PHP not activating in captive portal may be a legitimate issue though, there were some changes to the lighttpd config that might be causing that, I'll have to check into that.

    I just tried some PHP in a page on 2.0.3 and 2.1 and it worked in both places.
