Core: Error handler (BE): PHP Warning: gzuncompress() right after ddev installation of v11.5.9


I’m just starting out with Typo3 and following the ddev installation instructions from the documentation. Compared to the instructions, I do not get to select a database at all. At the end, I can login to the backend of Typo3 but get these strange errors at the logs and top of the page:

PHP Warning

Core: Error handler (BE): PHP Warning: gzuncompress(): need dictionary in /var/www/html/public/typo3/sysext/core/Classes/Cache/Backend/Typo3DatabaseBackend.php line 157

Googling around I found people mentioning the encoding of the database. Any help would be welcome.

This is a problem in ddev and has been fixed in the latest 1.19.2 version

Thank you! So, that means that I can edit LocalConfiguration.php to use driver mysqli and not pdo_mysql?

Just update DDEV the latest version, this should fix it.

I just updated brew, then ddev to v1.19.2 and finally did a ddev start.

Both AdditionalConfiguration.php and LocalConfiguration.php show ‘driver’ => ‘mysqli’

It seems that it’s not producing the issue anymore. Will get back if it returns!

Thank you!
