can not activate the plug in. i am working on doing some dev with xampp and php 5.4.4 and it looks like this is a common error with that version of PHP.July 24, 2012 at 5:35 am #47675adminKeymaster
Hi, None of our products work on non live site (local installation). Mainly because there are too many factors involved that require direct access to URLs and outside server connection. You can’t do that in a local installation. We can’t provide support until you install the plugin on a live server where we can access your site via a URL. This is explained in our terms and conditions.
Anyway, I have taken a wild guess and made a slight change in some code which might fix this issue. I have sent you an email with an update.July 24, 2012 at 12:23 pm #47676xpunkxMember
That worked thank you! I understand you can not support local dev installs. thank you for taking a stab at thisJuly 29, 2012 at 8:11 am #47677KiricoohMember
I got the same problem I try to install eMember in local with the last version of Easyphp and i got this :
Fatal error: Cannot re-assign auto-global variable _POST in C:Program FilesEasyPHP-12.0wwwMy.afroconscientwp-contentpluginswp-eMemberwp_eMember1.php on line 1209
I know that you are not supposed to help me since it’s a local installation but can you forward me the email you sent to xpunkx ? May be you can share this information for everyone who need to do this so you don’t have to send your solution again, again and again.
Anyway, when your site is important, you know that we have to test our changes before making them live. So what advice can you give to people like me who have bought your product and want to check that everything will be safe (no conflict with other plugins for instance) before putting everything live ?

I have committed the change to the plugin core so if you load a fresh build of the plugin now, you will get the change I made:
There is nothing wrong with putting the plugin on a local install for testing but you just need to keep in mind that this plugin is different than other plugins you may have installed. For example, this plugin needs access to the payment gateway which you don’t have in a local install. So all testing related to that functionality will fail.
The best option for testing a plugin that needs to be online is to create a test install of WordPress in one of your domains. For example, you can create a sub-domain called
"test.your-domain.com"and then install WordPress there along with other plugins. You can even install WP in a sub-folder on your site and test there too (example,
"your-domain.com/test/".August 13, 2012 at 6:27 pm #47679leo_osborneMember
