We are trying to set the php include_path
After a lot of research, this is actaully a server configuration issue.
The following bug reports for PHP have caused a change in php behaviour recently:
The problem is, if your webhost enters a non standard directive in the apache configuration file, like this:
php_admin_value include_path "/some/other/path"
Then PHP scripts are then unable to set/unset the include_path from within PHP (This is a VERY common technique for PHP Developers)
This is why you get the message you get below. Because we are unable to append the include_path with the correct path to the Zend files.
I have managed to replicate this locally - but I have been unable to overcome it and therefore our applications will not work if a system admin has defined the include_path in the apache configuration.
Please forward this information to your webhost and ask them either to
1) remove the custom php_admin_value include_path in the apache configuration
2) Add the absolute path to the Zend folder which is "/something/to/your/public_html/plugins/system/blueflame/libs/Zend" to the include path they specify
