PHP Fatal error in NZB.php and potential fix
« on: 2015-02-21, 04:47:26 am »

Firstly thanks for a great indexer with fantastic support and documentation; I'm moving from nn+ and wanted to make sure I could get nZEDb working first. Thanks go to all those involved for your hard work and time. At the bottom I will put what packages I have all are pre-built, no ppa.

Credit to Roelski for raising this.

Credit to mikegabriel for PPA php5 suggested fix. IMHO I avoid PPAs for support purposes and I am not sure this fix is in the guide I followed.

Build is based on a pull on the 20/02/2015.

On the monitoring pane for release processing I was getting the following error:

"Process Releases -> Create the NZB, delete collections/binaries/parts
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function gzopen() in /var/www/nZEDb/nzedb/controllers/NBZ.php on line 164"

The fix is to change the call for gzopen() to gzopen64(). The proper fix is to recompile php :/

"This is a known bug in PHP 5.3+ when compiled against certain versions of Zlib."
Workaround from

I hope this helps.

Code with the error on my system:

Code: [Select]
public function writeNZBforReleaseId($relID, $relGuid, $name, $cTitle)
                $path = ($this->buildNZBPath($relGuid, $this->nzbSplitLevel, true) . $relGuid . '.nzb.gz');
                $fp = gzopen($path, 'wb7');

Code with minor change to fix:

Code: [Select]
public function writeNZBforReleaseId($relID, $relGuid, $name, $cTitle)
                $path = ($this->buildNZBPath($relGuid, $this->nzbSplitLevel, true) . $relGuid . '.nzb.gz');
                $fp = gzopen64($path, 'wb7');

I followed the build instructions from here, which were accurate and detailed.
