php problem: "call to undefined function preg_replace()"
« on: May 27, 2009, 02:42:34 AM »
I've installed NanoCMS but I'm getting the above error when I try to navigate to it's administration page.  Everything works if I'm using XAMPP, but when I don't use XAMPP and use apache2+libxml2+php instead, I'm getting the error.  Is this a bug with the php tce?

Google says that function is in PHP as a PCRE dependency. Seems the php extension was built without pcre.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

There's a pcre extension you could use.

I am hoping robc will pick up on this thread and rebuild php5.tcel (it's marked as 'testing' anyways).

Yes, this extension was built without pcre since no pcre extension is available for 1.x.

@PingPing: Are you using 1.x or 2.x?

Hi robc.  I'm using 1.4.2.
From your post, I see there's a pcre.tcel in 2.x.  
I'm still getting the same error if I use 2.x
Is the pcre.tcel package build with preg_replace()?
Is there a reason why there's no pcre in 1.x?  Juanito?

Lots of questions, sry.
