Show warning that windows is unsupported instead of throwing an exception #26208
There are still people trying to run ownCloud on windows like seen e.g. at #26207, #24649 (comment) or https://central.owncloud.org/t/blank-page-on-local-xampp-nothing-to-display-no-login-page-no-any-other-contant/2231
IIRC in older versions a warning was shown that windows isn't supported. Current oC versions are just bailing out with an internal server error / white page and an autoload exception in the logfiles.
To avoid repeating reported issues it could make sense to show such a warning again instead of throwing an internal server error.
Edit exception examples:
Hi @RealRancor ,
as you pointed line 651, it use PHP'S short array syntax introduced at PHP 5.4:
When I read the code at line 644 and line 667, it use old PHP array syntax:
So the older version than PHP 5.4 will face this problem.
I have check the util.php file at master branch, all array() syntax has been converted to new array syntax.
And I have check the minimum requirement to run ownCloud at this page:
So... I think it safe to close this issue?
