“This could happen if your webhosting is currently running PHP 4 - ArticleReel uses PHP 5 functions and hence the call to http_build_query() fails. To fix the problem, you can try one of the two options:

1) Rename the index.php file to index.php5 (yes, with .php5 extension) on your webserver


2) Add the following link in your .htaccess file
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

I would recommend that you try the first option and see if it fixes the problem. Let me know how it goes. If you still have issues, please raise a Support Ticket by going to our Online Support Desk (”
