Cannot do reload after updating to 2.5.1

Hi. I was using freepbx 2.4.1 and I updated to 2.5.1 and now I get the following when I do the reload

Reload failed because retrieve_conf encountered an error: 255
exit: 255

I added the line

Any assistance with this would be apreciated.

You need to provide more information:

  1. Your distribution (Elastix, PBX in a Flash, trixbox or home brew)
  2. What version of php you are running, do a php -v in a shell and post the response here.
  3. How did you do the upgrade?

The error you are seeing is a php error, and that is strange as that function have been in php since version 4. This leads me to the conclusion that your php installation is not correct.

OK, I think I found the problem – I am using gentoo and for unknown reasons, the php5 build has a use flag of -ctype which compiles without those functions. Insane!
