Re: Testers needed: PHP 8 compatibility

I suspect Pat64’s host will have to recompile their PHP 8.0 as our friends at Wordpress need mysqli too (see make.wordpress.org/hosting/handbook/handbook/server-environment/#php-extensions) and if that doesn’t work, they have a way bigger issue. That said, Wordpress isn’t fully PHP 8.0-ready just yet, so not a deal breaker.

What’s odd is that the cPanel has checkboxes for which extensions to load, and mysqli is ticked there. But somewhere along the line that’s not getting pushed to the actual LAMP stack in production. Might be as simple as it not restarting the deamon properly, or it could be affecting a different (non-production) php.ini or something is overriding the version in use.

Patrick’s doing some digging.

Re: Testers needed: PHP 8 compatibility

Pat64: is there a php.ini file in the root directory? If there is, can you post the contents here, please?
