Hi Guys

The upgrade to 2.3.5 posed some problems. Mollom now WSOD's. It appears to be Mollom and core related and not spamprotection related. Mollom works 100% in reports until the keys are enabled in _config.php. It the shows only a blank white screen. When logged out mollom also only show a blank white screen on any userform. When logged in the form obviously works as the captcha is not displayed. Any idea what could be causing this.

Hi Enclave,

I have not seen this error at all before, but it has the hallmarks of a couple of things;

1. PHP memory exhaustion at a point where PHP is not able to even report the error.
2. Apache (or webserver of choice) segfault.

This is not to say that its not code/silverstripe related, but these two things should be fairly easy to rule out.

If you are running Linux/Apache then have a look at the apache error logs and also dmesg and the messages/syslog equiv.

If its windows, then you should be able to find something in the event log (I'm not a windows kid, so not totally sure)

Hope thats helpful.

Hi Owen

Thanks for the suggestions. I am running Linux. I made sure PHP has a ton of memory to work with and check the error.log in var/log/apache2 but no indication of any error occurring. This is really baffling me.

If you have any other ideas please let me know.

Removing the value for the publicKey and privateKey gives the following on the userforms page:

Fatal error: Class MollomSpamProtector contains 3 abstract methods and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (SpamProtector::getFieldName, SpamProtector::updateForm, SpamProtector::setFieldMapping) in /var/www/project/public_html/mollom/code/MollomSpamProtector.php on line 45

Ok I never managed to solve the problem locally but on a live server it is working. I used Ubuntu linux, with apache2 and PHP5. :/
