Can't sign in : empty page


I just installed OCS by using the command line tool.
All was fine, until i tried to sign in : when I submit the form, I just get an empty page.
I tried to renew my password but it didn’t solve the problem.

I turned the debug mode on, and I have a great number of errors like that :
CAUGHT EXCEPTION: Non-static method Registry::set() should not be called statically, assuming $this from incompatible context (/myPATH/TO/OCS/lib/pkp/classes/core/

Is there a problem in the PHP configuation? Something else?

Thanks for your help,

Hi @romainmenard,

OCS is written to support both PHP4 and PHP5, and PHP4 doesn’t support the “static” declaration.Therefore you’ll see exceptions of this form. They should be cosmetic.

I’d suggest checking the log a little further to see whether something else is relevant there. Also make sure your web-based php.ini has MySQL database support; the command-line tool and web-based PHP may have different configuration files. See also our FAQ on blank pages.
