Well those are warnings that you can ignore,  you can reduce the php warn level and you want see them anymore, however it is bothering that you got those right out of a installed trixbox.
Did you do any modifications to the code ?

How can i make them hidden? And yes its bothering me because the OS Panel doesnt display at all without error, and the header on the top looks so much different now.. like its weird its not displaying propperly. I didnt change any PHP config stuff not sure why this happened. only thing i changed was the manager password and changed it back to default 'amp111' to be on the safe side. It used to be working perfectly. still is, well not the OP Panel but most everything else works but every page has a PHP error of some kind

anyone got any ideas yet?.... thanks
You can turn off error_reporting in PHP with

Or you can set error reporting in your php.ini file.

However, that may not be desired. The last 2 errors are the result of the first error. They occur when a cookie is being written and output has already started (in this case the output is the first error).

As for the first error, this occurs when PHP cannot read the IP address. This may happen if (for example when using $_SERVER[HTTP_REFERER] or $_SERVER[REMOTE_ADDR] it returns more than 1 IP address. To resolve this issue, you can extract the first IP address from whatever variable you are trying to read:

if (strstr($remoteIP, ', ')) {
    $ips = explode(', ', $remoteIP);
    $remoteIP = $ips[0];

Is it extracting a IPv4 or IPv6 address?

v4, and i have no idea why its trying to do that either. and where would i put that code? im a NooB
That's a bit hard to say from here...the fastest way to turn of error reporting is to create a file called ".htaccess" (without the quotes) and place the following line in it:

php_value error_reporting 0

Place this file in your /www/ directory. It should disable error reporting for PHP unless the script overrides this again.

As for the other code, if you cannot or dont want to disable error reporting, this will most likely have to be placed around line 68 off the following file:


Please not that, variabele names may need to be changed depending on the situation at hand, i cannot see that from here unfortunately.

where is that? htaccess?
you can upload a file to your webhost called a.htaccess and then rename it to .htaccess (without the a). The file will become hidden in your FTP client.

Alternatively, you can place error_reporting(); in the top of your php page in /var/www/html/maint/modules/home/includes/os/

well all these are fine to stop the messages but i think im just going to reload. my OS Panel says Warn so does my SSH server. these are major issues and nothign displays right. i think these options must be fixed correctly or else i might run into issues witha  patch fix later on. im going to reload
This question needs to be 'deleted', not closed with an indicated solution.
Not that i care about the points, but the question has been answered, the error messages comes from a double ip address. The PHP function gethostbyaddr cannot handle that. So either fix that in the source code by stripping additional ip addresses or surpress the warning / error messages.

good communication
I had the exact same errors, found a solution that worked for me. I pulled this from another EE page:

MadShiva:In the network setup page on trixbox under "system" tab then "network"

put a dot com at the end and it resolved the issue.

Best Regards
I set my dns to opendns and that fixed the same problem on my system.

I know this post is old but in relation to Malchion's post if it is an internal server say trixbox1.localhost you should change this to trixbox1.localhost.localdomain
