php notice Constant SYNC_FILTERTYPE_ALL already defined

  • Hai,

    I recently upgrade my debian Jessie to Debian Stretch and my zarafa 7.2.4 to 7.2.6 and up to kopano 8.5.5 contributed edition.
    and upgraded z-push to 2.4.0

    In this upgrade, there are some small misses on dependies, i got them fixed, im now left over with the following message:
    PHP Notice: Constant SYNC_FILTERTYPE_ALL already defined in /etc/z-push/z-push.conf.php on line 166

    Now, i dont understand why im getting this message.
    Can someone explain this please.

    Besides that everything works great, upgrade zarafa to kopano was not that hard.

    For others a few pointers,

    php5 => php7 upgrade.
    run : dpkg -l | egrep “jessie|deb8|php5”
    remove these all, write down what is removed and install the matching new version.
    ! Dont use parameters as --purge here. because that remove some config you might want to keep.

    mysql (5.5) => mariadb ( 10.1 )
    Check the following:
    dpkg -l | egrep “mysql|maria”
    You might see, mysql-common but with a ~jessie extention which is a left over from backported packages or maria repo.
    If you remove that one, kopano gets removed also, again here, write down what removed, dont use --purge.

    after its all removed, re-check your sources.list for any jessie left overs.
    now install kopano-server-packages again.

    Dont forget to enable the php7-mapi

    Last, bit optimization in systemd services.
    If you run kopano on 1 server.

    run ; systemctl edit kopano-spooler

    do this for all except kopano-server.
    there i use :
    [Unit] mysql.service mariadb.service

    The why, now you dont have any messages in de logs except that its started.

    Hi thctlo,

    from which Z-Push version have you upgraded? Are you using repositories?

    Please post the output of fgrep -rn SYNC_FILTERTYPE_ALL /etc/z-push and fgrep -rn SYNC_FILTERTYPE_ALL [your-z-push-installation-folder].

    Hi thctlo,

    your z-push.conf.php line 166 is wrong. It should be:
