    I just completed a fresh install of Modx, installed updater, front-end got a 500 internal error, manager was working fine. There were no errors in the modx error log, but the host tech support found this error:

    [08-Jun-2015 08:24:40] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION, expecting ')' in /home3/xxxxxxx/public_html/imagespigot-2015/core/cache/includes/elements/modplugin/7.include.cache.php on line 147

    When I uninstalled updater, the page started working again.

      What plugin has the ID of 7?

      It's not a bad idea to disable all plugins during an upgrade.

      • Updater has a plugin inside. Maybe it has an issue in the last release.

          Hey Terry,

          I can't see from your error line if the *7.include.cache.php* is one of Updater's 2 plugins. You either need to look in the manager, section plugins, which plugin has the id 7 (the number in parenthesis). Or you can copy the first lines of the suspect file - it will show the plugin cached there.

          I wonder how this can happen - a parse error should show up on my IDE, and all other systems... But let's see.

            I just reinstalled updater. When I view the front, this error appears in the error log on the server. Nothing in Modx error log.

            Plugin10 is Update Notifier

              Hmm... cannot reproduce. Can you please take a look into that cache file and send the lines around 147? There shouldn't be a parse error there.

              Which PHP Version are you running on in what environment?

                I deactivated all other plugins except notifier, error still occurs.

                Line 147 begins with: function($v) {

                until now this strange reformatting is necessary because package controller
                returns nonsense and we did not touch it in updater class
                $package_names_update = array();
                $tmp = $updater->getPackagesUpdateList();
                if (isset($tmp) && !is_null($tmp)) {
                $packages_names_update = array_map(
                function($v) {
                return ($v[0]['name']."\t > ".$v[0]['signature']);
                }, $tmp
                } else {

                  I just updated this on another hosted server I use for testing. This works fine. No errors.

                      I just installed updater on my modx cloud server.

                      Modx 2.3.3pl

                      PHP Version 5.4.41

                      The front-end loads just fine here but this error appears in the modx error log.

                      [2015-06-09 08:51:33] (ERROR @ /paas/c1458/www/core/model/modx/modelement.class.php : 467) PHP warning: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(updater/elements/plugins/updater.notifier.plugin.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/paas/c1458)

                      This appears in the dashboard widget.
