I've been doing some research and decided to go ahead with an upgrade to PHP v7. Initially my front-end and back-end were non responsive, just a blank white page.
Running the latest version of Magento 126.96.36.199.
I came across the inchoo compatibility module: http://inchoo.net/magento/its-alive/
This resolved my front-end issues, but I cannot login to my admin panel. The header loads but that is it. There are no errors in any of the logs.
I did a search in my
community directories to check for incompatible code that might be responsible:
grep -rnPe .'->\$.+\[.+\]\(.*\)'
The only results were from the
core which are resolved by the Inchoo PHP 7 module.
Others seem to have had the exact same problem:
from magento 188.8.131.52, uploaded Seven to the server, then change to PHP 7.0 and my side goes blank. No errors, just nothing on the screen.
I'm sure this is a common issue and would like to get this documented since I could not find any solution to resolve this.
With no errors in the logs I am at a loss on how to troubleshoot the back-end issues.
Can someone provide a solution or guide me into how to resolve this?
For the close happy people in this section of SE:
I'm not asking if it is compatible, I'm asking how to make it work given the troubleshooting I've already done
