I am running an OJS installation (Version 18.104.22.168) on Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.7) in Apache 2.2.15.
I am seeing these lines in my error_log:
PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function getRequest() on a non-object in .../plugins/generic/usageStats/UsageStatsPlugin.inc.php on line 223
Doing some research I could narrow this down to the fact that
null whenever a PDF is downloaded. The hookName is
whenever that happens.
Is this a bug?
Is my installation somehow borked?
I took a deeper look and found that in
FileManager::downloadFile() there is a call to
Registry::clear() before the postDownload-Hooks get called.
Registry::get() which in this case can’t return anything as the registry is cleared…
So this is a bug!?
Or am I missing something?
I think this is reported in GitHub Issue 847, and fixed in 2.4.8. Can you try upgrading and confirm whether it resolves the problem?
Yes, upgrading to 2.4.8 fixed the problem. Article downloads are logged now and those “Fatal errors” are gone.
I searched this forum but forgot to search the github issues. Next time I will look there as well.
PS: What’s the best way to mark this question as solved?
