The Input Filter PHP extension is not setup on this PHP installation

Abstract: The Input Filter PHP extension is not setup on this PHP installation

  Q:I get an exception "The Input Filter PHP extension is not setup on this PHP installation, so the contents returned by Input is *not* filtered"

A:That means you don't have setup the Input Filter PHP Extension in your system, if you don't need to get input filter, you can edit your system.inc.php, and search for "throw new Exception", around line 226 and remove safely that line. Alternatively, you can setup the Input Filter extension.


A:If you are running PHP 5.2x then the PHP Input Filter is already built in, but the function filter_data was renamed to filter_var. A updated version of the system.inc.php class will be provided that supports both PHP 5.1x and PHP 5.2x will be available soon.
