I recently updated my Webissues server and client from version 1.1.5 to 2.0.2, on W10. In parallel I updated PHP on my local server from version 7.0.x to 8.0.7.
When starting Webissues I ran into an uncaught error, which pointed to the file '\system\core\request.inc.php', where in function 'initialize()' (starting at line 49), the PHP function 'get_magic_quotes_gpc()' is used. It appeares that this function has been removed from PHP as of version 8.0.0.
In 'request.inc.php' I modified the if-then-else, by removing the if part and retaining the else part, to eliminate this function call. This solved the problem for me, but I'm not sure this is the way to go.
I was then able to log in to Webissues client, but immediately got a 'Session Expired' message, requesting me to log in again.
Any suggestions where to look for a solution?
