Fix to core dump issue (running out of disk space)

#43519 (In Topic #9646)

There was a serious issue in 4.0.0/4.0.1 where the edit_ping.php script would silently keep crashing and, on some servers, eat up disk quota by creating many core dump files. I thought we'd fixed it in 4.0.2, but unfortunately the fix got missed out of the release. Therefore I'm attaching the fixed file here:

» Download: global2.php (89 Kb, 394 downloads so far)

We're also releasing 4.0.3, but there are no other serious issues so anyone looking to avoid an unnecessary upgrade (so soon after the last upgrade) may be better off just applying this fix and waiting for 4.0.4.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Ok I will wait.

I run and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
