0 - Path cannot be empty

Post by wecreatem » Tue Jul 20, 2021 1:54 am

I am running the current version of Joomla along with PHP 8. On one of my sites, wsaticentral.org I receive an error message of 0 - Path cannot be empty when I run the site with PHP 8, if I change this to 7.4, the site works correctly. I am trying to figure out why there is a problems on this site and not other sites in the same hosting.

If the site uses third party extensions, one of them may not support PHP 8.

More information required. Please post the results from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions at https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs so that our volunteer experts can review the configuration.

According to the HTML source code of the offline page, the website uses Nicepage 3.8.1, which looks quite old because the current version of the Nicepage Joomla extension seems to be 3.20.4. The old version may not be compatible with PHP 8.

Nicepage for Joomla has now been updated. Have you tried to change PHP to version 8?

Hi I have the same problem. I also use Nicepage but 6 out of 20 sites have this issue. If i make a new site using Nicepage it works fine. It's possible that only the sites built using a specific Nicepage version are affected.

Update!! I uninstalled the Nicepage component and installed the latest version and it is now working. (Just updating the component did not help)
