Recently installed a completely new server on AWS with the help of one of the great guides available here, a Ubuntu 20.04 server with LAMP-stack and installed Wordpress, Woocommerce. Purpose is to replace existing server (also on AWS) which is today running on ubuntu 16.04, mysql 5.7.23, php 7.0.31.
After installation and setup we pulled our repo with some serverside PHP scripts that we run daily on the old server. These script updates values for products in the database, and one explicit script which updates stock quantity are not running as expected, resulting in wrong/random values in database. In short, the script reads two txt-files with SKU and Quantity, puts these values into array and loads into temporary mysql table before updating into table with product data.
Since the script works as expected on the old server but not completely on the new, we’ve investigated any changes between the versions of php,mysql,ubuntu that could have changed the behavior, but have so far came up empty. Version changes: Ubuntu 16.04.6 -> 20.04.3 PHP 7.0.31 -> 7.4.3 Mysql 5.7.23 -> 8.0.28
I’m at a loss as where to continue troubleshoot since I’m not very good at PHP and the original developer is nowhere to be contacted.
