We tried to upgrade Providence from 1.7.1 to 1.7.8 and we got following error:
Cannot declare class Zend_Locale, because the name is already in use in <collectiveaccess>/app/lib/Zend/Locale.php
Tested with PHP 5.6, 7.2 on Debian Buster
First of all, only use 1.7.8 with PHP 7.2, not 5.6. Secondly, be sure to recreate your setup.php file using the setup.php-dist template that is part of 1.7.8. Don't use the setup.php from 1.7.1. Finally, be sure to restart your web server after updating. If you're running OpCache there's a chance it's still got the old code cached.
Thank you very much, Seth. We will try as soon as possible and let know whether it worked.
