#1214 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

XML-RPC array_merge warning

Reported by: timskii's profile timskii Owned by: chrishajer's profile chrishajer
Milestone: 1.0.3 Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 1.0.2
Component: Back-end Keywords: has-patch tested
Cc: gautam.2011@…


With pingback enabled, a PHP warning is logged:

array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #1 is not an array in ..forums/xmlrpc.php on line 164

Part of BB_XMLRPC_Server() . Probably only an issue for PHP 5, which no longer accepts non-arrays in array_merge(). I assume $this->methods isn't supposed to be an array.

Where would I see this warning? I'd like to see it before I patch and see that it's resolved. Thanks

#4 @GautamGupta

  • Keywords xmlrpc removed
  • Summary changed from xmlrpc array_merge warning to XML-RPC array_merge warning

Steps to reproduce:

1) Go to Settings -> Discussion and ensure that "Enable Pingbacks" is checked.
2) Go to Settings -> Writing and ensure that "XML-RPC" option is unchecked.
3) Go to, and you should see an error like this:

Warning:  array_merge() [<a href='function.array-merge'>function.array-merge</a>]: Argument #1 is not an array in <b>/home/.../</b> on line <b>164</b><br />

If you dont see the error (should not be the case, but still), then uncheck both the options and then check the "Enable Pingbacks" option.

OK, testing: enable pingbacks == true, XML-RPC == false. I do get this exact error. Will apply patch now and test again.

After apply patch, this is the result (as expected):

XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only. Will commit patch now. Thanks
