Error on administrator site phpversioncheck.php on line 178

Post by wojciech100 » Mon Nov 30, 2020 9:33 am

I've not logged for some time to Admin site but today I needed to apply changes.

Unfortunately I got following message :

Fatal error: Call to a member function format() on null in /plugins/quickicon/phpversioncheck/phpversioncheck.php on line 178

Can you please help me to fix this issue?

Welcome to the Joomla forum!

Not just PHP but also Joomla has received a number of security updates in the past two and half years. Therefore it is important to update Joomla to the latest version, 3.9.23.

Check the compatibility of templates and third party extensions first and make a full backup, including the filesystem and the database.
