The Joomla 3.4.7 update changed the session handler (mentioned in this LinkedIn posting )

The job scheduler fails. Looking at the error log here /administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/error_log shows errors like the following:

[24-Dec-2015 05:24:01 America/Chicago] PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /home//public_html/libraries/joomla/session/session.php on line 448

I also mentioned this in this other stackexchange posting but I think that posting is considered answered.

Do I need to file a bug report anywhere else?

  • It seems session issue. Can you check it in cognito browser? Also clear all the cache.

Yes, if after updating to the latest version of Joomla! and clearing all the cache it still is an issue, please post on https://issues.civicrm.org

  • Thanks for the link. After updating to Joomla 3.4.8 (3 updates in 5 days!), it's working again.

The update to Joomla 3.4.8 fixed the issue with session errors. Scheduled jobs are being called from the running cron job now.
