            craft cms command line update to version or greater fails
            Asked 2021-Aug-11 at 22:28

            I am running the following command to update craft cms:



            Answered 2021-Aug-11 at 22:28

            So I was able to figure out the issue. I had inherited the project and someone had added 'bootstrap' => ['debug'] to the config/ file, to enable the Yii debug toolbar. This debug module is calling addRules() on the UrlManager object, and craft code had set the rules field of this object to null instead of [ ]. When addRules() was called, array_merge() threw an exception on the null value (as it was expecting [ ] instead). This code path can be avoided entirely by removing the debug module.

            TLDR; remove 'debug' module from config/ if you get an array_merge() exception in UrlManager.php when updating to craft or greater.



            How to use phpdotenv library on my whole project?
            Asked 2021-Jul-16 at 17:41

            I started a project using composer and donlowaded the package vlucas/phpdotenv. I would like to call the $_ENV['name'] for example in my whole project without needing to instantiate the dot env in every class like that:



            Answered 2021-Jul-16 at 17:41

            Normally, you have a bootstrap file where you include both Composer's autoload.php and other common stuff, e.g. the instantiation of Dotenv. This can be an index.php file which handles all incoming requests (the most common pattern you will find in frameworks, Laravel does the same: or some other file you will include in all your .php files that are handling requests (if you are not using a common index.php).

            If you want to learn more about how frameworks work, I suggest you browse & read their code. You can start with something smaller (like Slim).


            Alright, let's build a very basic project:

            What could possibly cause getenv to fail when the variable is present in .env file?
            Asked 2021-May-10 at 09:58

            I have an .env file containing SOME_IP= In a Laravel controller for a certain request I call $foo = getenv('SOME_IP');. About 90% of the time it works fine, I get the string and proceed. But the other 10% of times, getenv returns false, even though the variable is clearly in the .env file. What could be causing this?

            Alternatively, Laravel's env returns null.

            Observed with vlucas/phpdotenv v2.6.4.



            Answered 2021-May-10 at 08:47

            Maybe it's because of caching the config. It is better to load your env variable in a config file and then retrieve it from the config. For example you can create a file with the name 'ips' in config directory like this:



            Codeception project can't find AcceptanceTester
            Asked 2021-Apr-22 at 18:40

            I am creating a new project from scratch on a Mac Catalina 10.15 with php v7.3.27 and composer v2.0.12. I have created a Codeception project before but on a different computer. I followed the quickstart guide using acceptance tests.

            I generated the page objects using "php vendor/bin/codecept generate:pageobject acceptance " and generated the Cests using "php vendor/bin/codecept generate:cest acceptance "

            When I try to run any tests, it says that the class isn't found. If I hover over my pages or over the word AcceptanceTester, it does not link me to anything. My project looks like this:



            Answered 2021-Apr-22 at 18:40

            You need to specify backslash before AcceptanceTester class name in the methods signatures to find class in the root namespace:

            public function signUp(\AcceptanceTester $I)

            public static function fillGetQuickAndEasyPrice(\AcceptanceTester $I, $address, $name, $phone)



            Laravel (vlucas/phpdotenv) changing env values dynamically
            Asked 2021-Mar-24 at 06:32

            In my test cases, I try to change some of the environment variables to create better test case coverage.

            Laravel by default, only support get environment variable by env($key, $default = null), I cannot change the variable.

            The Illuminate\Support\Env only supports get, does not support set.

            Also, by default Laravel uses vlucas/phpdotenv to managing the environment variable. Most of them are using ImmutableWriter.

            Is there any easy way to support dynamically changing environment variables are stored in ImmutableWriter.

            Again, the solution is no necessary to (and should not) be implemented in production for security reasons.



            Answered 2021-Mar-24 at 06:32

            PHP 7+ Closure has some interesting features, which can bypass private/protected checks. It is very hacky, however, pretty good for test cases written.



            Travis CI: Why does composer sometimes install whole packages, and sometimes not?
            Asked 2021-Mar-16 at 22:16

            Sometimes when Travis CI is building my package, there's a short list of dependencies, like so:



            Answered 2021-Mar-16 at 22:15

            Travis CI keeps a cache of your vendor folder in order to make builds run quicker (and reduce unnecessary traffic for them). If you've made some changes to your composer.lock file Travis CI may need to update the files stored in the vendor folder.

            Other times it won't need to do this, and so will have a shorter build time.

            phpdotenv download many packages
            Asked 2020-Sep-22 at 17:50

            I wanna to use phpdotenv in my project. I read it installation guide and run composer require vlucas/phpdotenv inside my project. Now it downloads many other packages except vlucas/phpdotenv in a folder named vendor as below.

            Do I need to maintain all of them or vlucas/phpdotenv is enough. If yes how can I merge these folders with other vendors folder while there is an autoload.php which is need to be included.



            Answered 2020-Sep-22 at 17:50

            All packages that are being installed using composer are kept under directory named as vendor. So you will see all installed packages over here.

            Now there is a feature that you require in your project(Loading environment variables from .env) and for that you're using another package(vlucas/phpdotenv) as your project dependency.

            In the same manner vlucas/phpdotenv package is also developed by another developer who relies on multiple packages for his project to work smoothly just like yours. So all packages which were used in this package as dependency will also be installed in your vendor folder.

            Now how these are installed: Check composer.json file at root of your project. It contains keys like require and require-dev, data inside these attributes tells composer to install packages for your project.

            In the same way when you'll look composer.json of vlucas/phpdotenv project, you'll see a list of all of your mentioned packages inside that. Composer auto detects them and install them, so you don't have to manually installed them to make vlucas work in your project.

            composer.json file of vlucas/phpdotenv.
