J4 and PHP 8.1

Post by xtremo54 » Tue Nov 30, 2021 2:20 pm

Hi guys.....I tested J4 on PHP 8.1 (altPHP 8.1 on Cloud Linux) and initially things seemed to be OK.

But then I noticed an error message on the extensions icon in the Admin:

Missing field in database: Joomla\CMS\Table\Extension &#160; extension_id.

All relevant PHP modules seemed to be activated on the server, so is J4 not ready for PHP 8.1 yet?

Hi,

There's a PR in Joomla 4.0.5 (due date : next week) about PHP 8.1 compatibility: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/36041

That message is unlikely to be php related

But when I switch back to 8.0 with the same PHP modules enabled there's no issue Brian.

That important information was missing from your original post.

Looking at the pull request referred to above it would appear that it may resolve it.
