Please make sure that the PHP functions json_decode() and json_encode() work on and

fox2mike and I recently debugged this problem on www-trunk.stage, and found that the PECL package was installed but not configured properly.

The page using these functions will launch a week from today.

This will need to be set up in puppet in order to work properly in production (since those servers can get replaced at random and need to be set up correctly automatically when they get loaded from scratch).

The page you linked was last updated 4 days ago and no longer includes any configuration information, only "compiled in by default in PHP 5.2.0 and newer".  I can't find a page history to look at the older versions at all.  Can you share the needed configuration information?

fox2mike can be more specific about what he did to fix the issue.

You can...

a) install the JSON PECL package and configure apache-php to load the .so module.  I think this is in /etc/httpd/conf.d/json.conf?  (the name json.conf could be wrong)  Also, you'll need to restart apache to load the new config.


b) upgrade to php 5.2 (currently we're at 5.1.6 I think)

I think I'd rather just update php to 5.2, so that it will be in sync with the other clusters.
