Since version 1.3.3, SobiPro uses the Sobi Framework for common functions. This is the first step needed to provide our community with additional components in the future.
However, there is a necessary requirement to use the framework. This is no new requirement, as it is already compulsory for the SobiPro template settings available since SobiPro 1.3.0.
In order to use the Sobi Framework out of the box, the Phar
extension has to be available.
Phar is not only needed for the Sobi Framework, but also for the Template Settings and the LESS compiler.
If you have Suhosin installed, make sure that Phar support is enabled in Suhosin. This is a common problem on some servers.
If your server does not support Phar, it is highly recommended to get in contact with your hosting provider or system administrator to get the Phar extension installed and working.
If you have updated SobiPro and found out that Phar support is not available, ask your hosting provider immediately to install Phar!
In the meantime you can install the Sobi Framework manually.
While installing SobiPro, the Sobi Framework will be installed into the folder libraries/sobi in your Joomla! installation. The
Sobi Framework consists of one phar archive named Sobi-x.x.phar.tar.gz, where
x.x is the version number. So the
resulting filename can be for example Sobi-1.0.1.phar.tar.gz.
If your server supports Phar, the information are read directly from the archive.
If your server does not support Phar, you need to extract the phar archive. It is 'tar.gz' packed. Copy the archive file to your local PC by either getting it from your server (via SFTP or FTP) or pull it out from the SobiPro installation package. Once on your PC, extract it. On Mac, simply double click on it. For Windows you need a specific archive software to extract tar.gz archives, such as the free 7Zip software.
Copy now the folders and files from the phar archive to the folder libraries/sobi of your Joomla! installation / server (via SFTP, FTP or deployment). If the extracted files have a surrounding container, e.g. Sobi-1.0.1.phar (typical on Mac), omit this container and copy only its content.
Delete the phar archive Sobi-x.x.phar.tar.gz, where
x.x is the version number from your server. If there are still
other phar archives, delete them too. If you do not delete the phar archive, SobiPro is still trying to read from the phar archive.
