    Default [Done v1.5.4] PHP 5.4 PHP Warning: Creating default object from empty value

    This is an informational post...hopefully it will save someone else the time I spent on this.

    After upgrading my local Windows 7 test server to Xampp 1.80: php 5.4.4 I started getting debug logs being created from the admin.

    [27-Sep-2012 16:10:25 UTC] PHP Warning: Creating default object from empty value in D:\blah blah\public_html\tienda\MY_ADMIN\categories.php on line 1018

    Which is:
    PHP Code:
                      if (empty($pInfo->products_id)) {
    line 1018         $pInfo->products_id$pID
    It happens in Admin->Catalog->Categories/Products when doing a search that yields a result that includes categories (but for no result/a result with products only,..no debug log is created).

    I have a copy of my shop (upgraded to 1.51) and a vanilla 1.51 install on the same server. The vanilla install did not cause the debug log.

    As it was “obviously” a problem with my shop I spent a lot of time investigating that avenue...nothing.

    The error reporting seemed to be the same in the shop files and ZC151 files, and php.ini between the old Xampp 1.73 php 5.3.1. and the new 1.80 php 5.4.4.

    Eventually I found that in php 5.4 the buggers have included E_STRICT error reporting in E_ALL so the warnings were from E_STRICT being implemented: obvious when you work with php all the time..which I don’t.

    Further to this adding the extra line cures the warning.

    PHP Code:
      if (empty($pInfo->products_id)) {
    $pInfo = new stdClass();    
    $pInfo->products_id$pID
    So....why does the vanilla ZC151 not produce the error? Obviously there's an E_ALL lurking somewhere in my files but I’ve looked at all the instances of E_ALL in my shop and the vanilla, and commented out any extras in my mods...still haven’t found why there is a difference in the error reporting...so this post does not go in the bug reports!

    Also occurs for /includes/modules/shipping_estimator.php:
    Code:
    [25-Nov-2012 16:22:21 Europe/Berlin] PHP Warning:  Creating default object from empty value in C:\xampp\htdocs\mystore\includes\modules\shipping_estimator.php on line 107

    It looks like the solution for this one might be (starting at line 63 of the v1.5.1 module):
    Code:
      //if($cart->get_content_type() !== 'virtual') {
      require(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'order.php');
      $order = new order;
      if ($_SESSION['customer_id']) {
        // user is logged in
        if (isset($_POST['address_id'])){
          // user changed address
          $sendto = $_POST['address_id'];
        }elseif ($_SESSION['cart_address_id']){
          // user once changed address
          $sendto = $_SESSION['cart_address_id'];
          //        $sendto = $_SESSION['customer_default_address_id'];
        }else{
          // first timer
          $sendto = $_SESSION['customer_default_address_id'];
        }
        $_SESSION['sendto'] = $sendto;
        // set session now
        $_SESSION['cart_address_id'] = $sendto;
        // set shipping to null ! multipickjup changes address to store address...
        $shipping='';
        // include the order class (uses the sendto !)
    //    require(DIR_WS_CLASSES . 'order.php');
    //    $order = new order;
      }else{
        // user not logged in !

    Default PHP 5.4 and PHP Errors

    I think we can consider this minor as it doesnt seem to have caused any issues on any of our sites but our host 1and1.com is requiring everyone to upgrade to php 5.4 before April 1st, and when doing so the myDEBUG files in the cache folder start growing like crazy with these warnings.

    I have not edited any of these core files.

    PHP Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /homepages/38/d436025994/htdocs/includes/modules/payment/authorizenet_aim.php on line 429

    This error in the authorize module refers to this line in the admin_notifications function $aimdata->fields = array();

    PHP Warning: Illegal string offset 'id' in /homepages/38/d436025994/htdocs/includes/modules/payment/paypalwpp.php on line 199

    This refers to the update_status function and this line of code: $sql = $db->bindVars($sql, ':countryId', $order->billing['country']['id'], 'integer');

    Again neither core files have been touched. And these errors do not show if we revert back to PHP 5.3.

    If you have a quick fix to keep the log files from getting crazy (other than shutting it off) please let me know.

    Default Re: PHP 5.4 and PHP Errors

    Thanks for the quick reply and fix. As mentioned before I dont think it was causing an problems with the software functioning just a log file mess when they start to stack up. It appears php 5.4 is a bit more strict with the calling of objects and error logging.
