Default Error When upgraded to PHP 7

My webserver was upgraded to PHP 7 and now I cannot log into my admin panel.

The error is:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function set_magic_quotes_runtime() in /home1/boyleass/public_html/em6/admin/com/init.php:214 Stack trace: #0 /.../.../public_html/.../admin/index.php(79): require_once() #1 {main} thrown in /.../.../public_html/.../admin/com/init.php on line 214

This is a result of being upgraded to php7 which is required for my other applications and security.

Is there a fix???

Default PHP 7 compatibility fix

Through my own research I was able to come up with a fix for this and get Email Marketer 6.1.4 and Send Studio NX1.4.2 to work in a PHP 7 environment by doing the following:

For Email Marketer 6.1.4 you need to create an .htaccess file by opening a text editor and adding this text:

# Use PHP5.6 Single php.ini as default
AddHandler application/x-httpd-phpbetas .php

Save the file as an .htaccess extension and upload to the directory where the program resides.

For those running the legacy Send Studio NX1.4.2 follow the same procedure

except use the following lower php version with this syntax

# Use PHP5.4 as default
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php54 .php:


If your website is running php7 on its root directory and your email system is on a separate folder, you can run two different php versions (php7 on the main site and php 5.6 on a subdirectory) the two will work.
