PHP Notice: Trying to access array offset on value of type null

Post by MooseMoney » Wed Jan 25, 2023 2:43 am

Our hosting company advised us of a PHP error notice;

PHP Notice: Trying to access array offset on value of type null in /home/xxxxx/public_html/libraries/src/Language/Language.php on line 1012

The code at line 1012;

Code: Select all

    return (bool) $this->metadata['rtl'];  


Our website uses Joomla v4.2.6 and PHP 8.1
The template came with 2 languages: English (en-GB) and Arabic.
The website is setup for English (en-GB).

How do I fix this error?

Looks like a php version in-compatability.

Have you updated the Language Packs?

Please use the FPA. See Red Frame above.

#Per Yngve Berg - Thank you for your reply.

No, I have not updated any language packs.
Many month ago, I did disable the Arabic language.

There is some error which is slowing our website and creating large error logs.
Our hosting company have now deleted the error logs, disabled PHP 8.x and enabled PHP 7.4.33.
Although our website is now loading normal speed, this is not a lasting solution.

I followed the FPA instructions (https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs/).
It is not working on our website - it is redirecting to our Home page.
