PHP Errors in BIND Package



  • The following error occurs (and is repeated) every time a zone is edited/saved in the BIND package. The package version says 0.4.0.

    Crash report details:
    
    PHP Errors:
    [17-Sep-2015 10:24:51 America/Denver] PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected ')' in /usr/local/www/pkg_edit.php(147) : eval()'d code on line 2
    

    I've tried removing and re-adding the package and that hasn't helped. The error seems to occur on every zone regardless of specific zone config.

    Is there a way to either fix this or roll the package back to a previous version? I don't recall having this problem in the past, but I don't know which versions those were nor do I know how to install a previous version of the package anyway.

    No, there is no rollback anywhere and never was, and the error is completely useless as well.



  • Well sorry doktornotor - that's the crash report as it exists. It is repeatable and persistent. What do you suggest?

    No idea. Make it spit out something useful pointing to actual errors somewhere in some bind package file.. Like, enable debug or god knows…



  • I'm just a user - not a developer. I'm willing to follow instructions to help get to the bottom of this if you have any to provide. I have no idea how to "make it spit out something useful" or how to enable debug. I also don't know what god knows.

    Keep in mind this is a production installation.

    (If all of this got eval()-ed on install and the install aborted due to buggy code, we'd get a useful error and quick fix. Not a stupid bug hidden in the code for months… )
