Hi @Frank, I’ve found the issue and put in a silent fix for this. Your Search page is now loading correctly.
Short explanation: this was caused by Backlight trying to check for a directory that it didn’t have permission to access.
Longer explanation: The search page uses a special type of album specifically for search results. Since that album doesn’t exist under a folder, there is no path to it. In trying to work out the dimensions of a cover image, Backlight is inadvertently trying to check whether
/thumbnails/ exists, rather than a path such as
galleries/my-album/thumbnails. A directory starting with
/ points to the top level of your server, which is outside of your web directory and out of bounds for where PHP is allowed to check.
I am surprised that this hasn’t affected other users. It could be that
open_basedir restrictions, which limit where PHP can check, aren’t used as often as they were in the past.
