Internal Server Error with PHPList

PHPList produces internal server error. Checking error logs results in:

Invalid command 'php_flag', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration.

The php_flag command is used to set a PHP configuration directive. However, not all servers support this command. If your server does not support the php_flag command, you will need to remove it from your PHP configuration file.

Here are the steps on how to remove the php_flag command from your PHP configuration file:

 

  1. Open your PHP configuration file. This file is usually called php.ini and resides in your public_html folder with Ultra.
  2. Find the line that contains the php_flag command.
  3. Comment out the line by adding a # symbol to the beginning of the line.
  4. Save the file.

Once you have removed the php_flag command from your PHP configuration file, PHPList should no longer produce the error message.

Here are some additional details about the error message:

  • The php_flag command is a deprecated command. This means that it is no longer supported by the latest versions of PHP.
  • If you are using an older version of PHP, you may need to upgrade to a newer version in order to remove the php_flag command from your PHP configuration file.

This can also be corrected by remarking or removing:

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc on

in your .htaccess file.
