This issue still exists in moodle-2.6.10-1.el6.noarch from EPEL 6 testing repository.

Comment 2 Aldo Necci 2015-04-15 13:33:25 UTC
This issue comes from Moodle version 2.6.x which includes the plugin "PDF annotation" which compromises the assignment module.
To have assignment module working again it's necessary to remove that plugin.

A. Does this still impact 2.6.11?

B. If so, which file provides that plugin?

Yes, I'm using moodle-2.6.11-3.el6 and it still has that issue.
It is the standard PDF annotation feature in Moodle 2.6.x that causes this issue.

Comment 9 Gwyn Ciesla 2016-06-24 17:40:00 UTC
Do you know which file/files that is?

Comment 10 Sergio Basto 2018-05-31 01:27:17 UTC
hum I think I found the solution of the problem of blank page is about this PHP Fatal Error [1], solution [2]

PHP Fatal error:  require_once(): Failed opening required '/var/www/moodle/web/lib/simplepie/moodle_simplepie.php' (include_path='/var/www/moodle/web/lib/pear:.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php') in /var/www/moodle/web/blocks/rss_client/block_rss_client.php on line 283

cd /var/www/moodle/web/lib/
ln -s /usr/share/php/php-simplepie/ simplepie

Comment 11 Fedora Update System 2018-09-04 09:29:36 UTC
moodle-3.1.13-3.el7 has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 7.

Comment 12 Sergio Basto 2018-09-04 09:36:21 UTC
I just realize this bug is about "assignment module",  moodle-3.1.13-3.el7 fixes simplepie module .

Comment 13 Sergio Basto 2019-10-27 03:43:24 UTC
