Mijireh Slurper module file

An error has occurred:
The requested Mijireh_Slurper module file could not be found or is not readable due to file permissions.

We are receiving this msg when we update Event Espresso plugin and have had to roll back since March due to it. Basically we have never used that payment gateway and when we do a search within our files and DB there is no file outside of the plugin that contains a reference to that payment gateway either. We would really like a solution as it has been since March that we have not updated the plugin and worry for security issues.

Hi there,

Where do you get that error message when you update?

Does the admin still load after you’ve updated and the above shows as a notice or do you get a widescreen with the above?

Actually everything loads just fine. We just have an error pop up (when logged in to the admin) on the frontend that has that msg in it. It has been a while that it has been happening (since at least March).

So are you running the latest version currently or still on a previous version?

Which site?

If you see the error currently then go to Event Espresso -> General Settings.

Make a change to say Company name (just add ‘2’ on the end) and save, then remove that change and save again, does it remove the notice?

I can’t reproduce this on my test sites and it looks like when you update you are loading a cached version of the EE config, updating that config (the above steps) should remove the error.

Let me check. I would have you do it but it would require giving you a secure login! I will see if I can fix it using that and if not then I will make you a user to look. I don’t have it on our live site yet since it was showing up to all.

That did not work. I am getting this error in the editor after saving as well:

The following errors have occurred:
The requested Mijireh_Slurper module file could not be found or is not readable due to file permissions.
The requested Mijireh payment method file could not be found or is not readable due to file permissions.

Hmm, any kind of caching enabled?

When you update the plugin do you use the plugin manager or via FTP?

I went through to double-check this and the modules are loaded using:

$modules_to_register = glob(EE_MODULES . '*', GLOB_ONLYDIR);

Meaning it dynamically pulls all of the module directories using the above and then load each directory from there.

It’s a similar setup with payment methods:

$pm_to_register = glob(EE_PAYMENT_METHODS . '*', GLOB_ONLYDIR);

Both of those variables are then filtered a little later for any custom functions so either glob is somehow returning a cached result or the Mijireh_Slurper directory still exists in your install of Event Espresso. We removed it so unless you update the files manually it should no longer exist.

On the site in question with the latest version of EE install, check /wp-content/plugins/event-espresso-core-reg/caffeinated/modules/`

Can you see a mijireh_slurper directory there?

We do a git push with auto deploys to the site. Would it be better to maybe manually update that?

Okay so apparently our deploys were not catching those files being deleted but our GIT repo was. Super strange. So we manually deleted it via ftp and we are squared away. I appreciate you telling me where to look for the files!! I usually don’t mess with plugin files since I know updates can remove changes you made but clearly those files are not in our code repo so we should be good going forward too!
