After the upgrade of my ubuntu server to 13.04 my phpmyadmin is no longer reachable. the browser reports 500 (internal server error) and in the error.log it says:
PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required './libraries/php-gettext/gettext.inc' (include_path='.') in /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/select_lang.lib.php on line 370
Any other php software works fine on the machine and so does mysql itself. Phpmyadmin is installed correctly and worked fine before the dist-upgrade. i also did
sudo aptitude reinstall phpmyadmin but that did not help.
the version number of phpmyadmin is 4:188.8.131.52-1
any ideas, what could be wrong here?
/edit: by now i found out, that the symlinks here do not seem to work:
mcnesium@fluse:/usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/php-gettext$ ls -l total 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 Apr 25 03:38 gettext.inc -> ../../../php/php-gettext/gettext.inc lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 Apr 25 03:38 gettext.php -> ../../../php/php-gettext/gettext.php lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 Apr 25 03:38 streams.php -> ../../../php/php-gettext/streams.php
i backed up the folder
php-gettext and cp -r'd the symlinked one over, now it works. so this actually seems to be a symlink-problem.
this is the beginning of my
# phpMyAdmin default Apache configuration Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin <Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin> Options FollowSymLinks DirectoryIndex index.php
so it is supposed to follow symlinks right away. before the ubuntu upgrade everything worked fine. so whats the matter with the symlinks?
