Hi - cartridge author here. I can confirm that that is the case.

I am speaking with Dan Mace in #openshift-dev about this, and it appears that some recent changes to cartridge initialization code have happened and OpenShift Online throws an exception when the vendored PHP and mod_fastcgi get ungzipped into ~/usr.

Dan is investigating when this change happened and what the best course of action will be.

The cartridge authors documentation/specification has always described the rules for writing to $OPENSHIFT_HOMEDIR:


However, these restrictions weren't always properly enforced in code. This recent commit enforces the restriction in question:

Dan and Jhon gave me some great help today and as a result, the Drupal 8 quickstart (and more specifically, the PHP 5.4 cartridge) rides again.
