Installation problem - proc_open()

During the installation of Omeka Classic I get the error Fatal error: ‘Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function proc_open() in’. How to resolve it? The solution from Installing without proc_open/on shared hosting · Legacy Forums · Omeka website does not work. Many thanks in advance for your help.

This is probably a problem specific to a combination of your server disabling that function and being on a relatively new version of PHP. Those things in combination result in some errors like this that didn’t happen with previous versions.

We fixed this in several places, but didn’t reach the installer, it looks like.

Dear John,

thank you very much for your response. How do you think installing on an older version of PHP will solve the problem? For example, from 7.2 to 8.

PHP 7 versions shouldn’t have this same problem, so that’s a possible solution.

We’ll also fix the installer to not have this problem, but I don’t have a nailed-down date on when you could expect a release with that fixed.

Dear John,

changing the php version to 7 has solved the problem. Thanks a lot for your assistance.
