Using Zweather 6.01 on Joomla

My web server updated its servers and now I'm getting the following error with Zweather (all was working before the update):

This is occuring when clicking on the LOCATION MANAGER or when trying to refresh the cache.

Fatal error: Call to a member function getTagName() on a non-object in
.../public_html/components/com_zweather/zweather.class.php on line 585

(shortened path to zweather.class.php)

Note that libxml is version 2.7.2 (the web server host will not downgrade this)

PHP is 5.2.8

allow_url_fopen is enabled

I'd appreciate some help as I had to disabled the use of Zweather until I have a fix for this.

Update:

This seems to be caused by a bug in libxml:
bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=45996

Thanks for any help and for Zweather!

Happy New Year! :)

We also have the same problem on 2 sites.

Zweather version is 6.01
PHP version is 5.2.8
libxml is 2.7.2
allow_url_fopen is enabled

My host just upgraded the server, PHP 5.2.8. libmxl 2.7.2. He's checking it. Host has also turned off allow_url_fopen, but is willing to turn it on for my site. Meantime, I've turned zweather off...

There is a bug with libxml version 2.7.1 and 2.7.2. If you can, downgrade libxml to a version prior to 2.7.1, although this may not be possible for many users who use a shared hosting environment.

Mine is one of those shared hosting environments. I sure hate losing ZWeather. I think it's the best weather component & module out there.

Shared hosting environments are very reluctant to downgrade to earlier versions (mine will not do it).

I also see reports of a work around by installing libexpat, but I haven't been able to get my server host to do this yet.

Perhaps this will help someone.
