Trying to post to Twitter and after I create a node that is supposed to tweet, I get a blank white page. I checked the server error log and found this error:

PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class OAuthSignatureMethod_HMAC_SHA1 in
/var/www/html/newsome/sites/all/modules/oauth/lib/OAuth.php on line 120

The node saves, but clearly chokes on trying to tweet.


I just spent an hour and a half trying to track this one down. It is related, I assume, to issues #958126: Extra class OAuthException Declaration?, #1334528: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class OAuthException, #1498642: GAR install results in Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class OAuthException , and #1892612: Problem accessing Google Analytics Reports after installation, which all seem to suggest that the error stems from a conflict between the PHP "OAuth" extension and this module.

From my research and my troubleshooting:

Suggestion #1 is to disable the PHP OAuth module if possible. (Wasn't possible for me.)

Suggestion #2 is to pull the latest development version which, for some classes (OAuthException), includes wrappers to prevent multiple declarations. (Didn't solve it for me: it shut up the OAuthException error, but then I began getting OAuthSignatureMethod_HMAC_SHA1 when attempting to delete a user account.)

Suggestion #3 was to eradicate the entire OAuth module folder and reinstall fresh. That did the trick for me.

Evidently if you've upgraded this module (simply by unpacking a new tarball over the existing files) a few times, "something" might be left behind that breaks things. I doubt it is worth the effort to determine exactly what that was, but try these steps and see if that helps matters.

I get this error too, and it prevents Twitter authentication. I'm using latest D7 version.

Uninstalling everything is barely an option for me, so I ended up wrapping all class declarations in sites/all/modules/oauth/lib/OAuth.php in conditional statements like :

if (!class_exists('OAuthSignatureMethod_HMAC_SHA1')) {
// Class declaration goes here

It seems to work OK, but is absolutely awful, of course.
