Welcome to the Joomla forum!

Does the site use an supported version of Joomla? The current version is 3.9.27, soon to be updated to 3.9.28.

Even though PHP 5.6 can run Joomla, this version of PHP does not receive any updates. Therefore it is not safe. In Joomla technical requirements the recommended version is PHP 7.3+.

More information is required. Please post the results from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions at so that our volunteer experts can review the configuration and give advice.
