What PHP 8.0 extensions have to be included for J! websites to operate?

Post by mitokat » Wed Sep 14, 2022 6:46 pm

We are setting up a new server running php 8.0 for a few Joomla 3.0 sites which will then be upgraded in the next few months to 4.0. Having lots of issues with the copied over sites, as in they do not work. So this brings me to my question, what php extensions have to be added to the regular 8.0 installation for the sites to run. The copied sites are showing an error and I even tried a fresh install of the last versions of 3.0 and 4.0 but nothing worked. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

J3.0 does not run on php 8 as it's 10 years old.

Both 3.0 and 4.0 is outdated. Current versions is 3.10.11 and 4.2.2
