Please check.

I applied the patch (8b962c6a752a654f2def293d93c102d2d20a6887) and then made a backup. I added an empty <syslog></syslog> tag in the backup file and then restored the backup config. The PHP error appeared right after visiting the system logs settings.

Please check again.

What was the exact error you observed? Are you certain the patch applied fully/successfully?

I tried again on a fresh snapshot and <syslog></syslog> does not produce a crash. If you added a tag you might have actually added a second <syslog> section which resulted in a different error. The default configuration already contains a <syslog> section with one setting defined inside.

That was my bad. I probably didn't wait long enough for the system_package to finish the installation process after restoring the config on 23.01.

I tested again on the 2.7.0.a.20230330.0600, and after restoring the config with an empty <syslog></syslog> tag, there was no PHP error.

It's fixed. I am marking this ticket resolved.
