The following topic from last year deals with the same error: viewtopic.php?f=708&t=976426.

Use phpMyAdmin or a similar MySQL client utility from the cPanel provided by your host to edit the table _extensions. Disable the plugin plg_quickicon_phpversioncheck by changing the column 'enabled' from 1 to 0. This change should allow you to access the back end.

Joomla 3.8.10 was released more than two years ago and a number of security updates have been published since then. It would be time to update the website to the latest version, Joomla 3.9.23. However, please create a full backup of the site first, including the filesystem and the database. Check also the template and all third party extensions if they are supported in Joomla 3.9.

@aspcsharp9, thanks for marking the topic as resolved.

For those who are wondering why the problem occurred in the version check plugin: Joomla 3.8.10 was released on June 26, 2018, when the latest PHP version was 7.2.7. PHP 7.3 was released 6 months later.

Therefore the plugin phpversioncheck.php in 3.8.10 knew only of PHP 7.2 in its list of supported PHP versions, as shown by the last item at that time:

Code: Select all

			'7.2' => array(
				'security' => '2019-11-30',
				'eos'      => '2020-11-30',
			),
That is consistent with the PHP supported releases. The last day of critical security fixes for PHP 7.2, or end of support (eos), was yesterday. Bingo!

Joomla 3.9.23 includes entries for PHP 7.3 and 7.4 and the next Joomla update will add PHP 8.0 to the list of supported versions. It is worth the effort to use supported versions of both Joomla and PHP.

Hi. Thanks for the information.
However, I don't seem to have plg_quickicon_phpversioncheck in my _extensions.
What do I need to do?

Thanks,
Charley

PHP Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /home/southarkexpo/public_html/libraries/rokcommon/RokCommon/Service/ContainerImpl.php on line 461
Your Rok Common plugin is out of date and seems to be throwing the error. Rocket Theme have 3.2.9 available for download.
Back up and install it and see if the error clears.
Joomla is also well out of date and I haven't checked your other third party extensions. You should do some serious house keeping and get all of the software up to date.

Thanks very much. I updated Rok Common, but the error persists.
I would like to update my Joomla, but can't get to the System page where it is done.
Is there another way to update my Joomla? Can I just download the latest update and install it?

I upgraded my php to 7.4 which removed the error.
I was then able to upgrade my Joomla.
Thanks very much for your help!
