BlueOnyx 5107R – Missing labels on HTML elements

I recently noticed that one of our BlueOnyx 5107R servers was missing labels on all HTML elements and thus presented a somewhat curious looking login screen.

After looking through the yum update log, it turned out that the PHP packages had received an update from upstream. From what I remember, the BlueOnyx admin server uses a PHP class to put labels on HTML components so this could explain the absence of the aforementioned labels.
After issuing a restart of the admin server with the command below, everything went back to normal.

/etc/init.d/admserv restart

I have not experienced this “bug” with the admin server on previous PHP updates so I don’t know exactly what caused it, nor did I find any relevant error messages in the log files. Anyhow, the remedy is simple enough.
