After updating the PHP version from 5.2.17 to 5.3.3 the Presence Builder related task failed with following error:

Script execution failed: executing '/usr/bin/php -d open_basedir= -q configure.php' for APS application instance with id yyy returned value '199' with output 'Site error: the file <b>/usr/local/pem/vhosts/xxxxx/webspace/siteapps/ParallelsWebPresenceBuilder-yyy/scripts/configure.php</b> requires the ionCube PHP Loader to be installed by the site administrator.' and errors 'PHP Warning: Directive 'magic_quotes_gpc' is deprecated in PHP 5.3 and greater in Unknown on line 0

After installing php53-ioncube-loader-4.0.12-2.pem.x86_64.rpm package the task failed with a different error:

Script execution failed: executing '/usr/bin/php -d open_basedir= -q configure.php' for APS application instance with id 396 returned value '1' with output '<?xml version="1.1" encoding="utf-8"?>

You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Europe/Helsinki' for 'EET/2.0/no DST' instead

Timezone is not configured in /etc/php.ini


  1. Make sure that php53-ioncube-loader-4.0.12-2.pem.x86_64.rpm package is installed:

    # yum install php53-ioncube-loader

    In case the host uses some alt-php package, install Ioncube Loader of the corresponding version, e.g.:

    # yum install alt-php55-ioncube-loader
  2. Configure timezone in /etc/php.ini e.g.:

    date.timezone = Europe/London
  3. Restart apache to apply /etc/php.ini changes:

    in case of Legacy Shared Hosting:

    # /etc/init.d/pemhttpd restart

    in case of NG hosting:

    # /etc/init.d/httpd restart
