    Resolution

    The generated error message will help determine the contents of the file causing the health check error. To address this issue, the code-level customization will need to be edited from Sugar before proceeding with the upgrade.

    Breakdown of health check error:

    • The file causing the error can be found in ./custom/Extension/modules/Accounts/Ext/var_dumpExample/var_dumpExample.php.
    • The health check detects an issue on line 5 of the file.

    In this example file, the code contains var_dump which is triggering the health check error.

    The var_dump function as shown in line 5 of the file is not allowed in Sugar 7.x and above. To resolve the health check error, replace var_dump with the print_r(..., true) function, then re-save the file. The corrected file should then look like:

    Once the necessary change has been made, please navigate to Admin > Repair and perform a “Quick Repair and Rebuild” to ensure that the changes are synced between the application and database. Then, perform the health check again to confirm that the error is no longer reported.
