Don't try to run 3.10.4 on PHP 8.1 with "maximum" error reporting enabled!
The site will crash, and the only way to get it running is to change the PHP version on the server or manually edit configuration.php to:

Code: Select all

public $error_reporting = 'none';

Are you using Joomla without any 3rd party extensions, which might also cause the issue that you just described?

Could you set "Error Reporting" to Maximum and switch "Debug System" to "Yes".
And post the error that you get here?

It's a clean install.
This is a known issue for the developers. It has been discussed here: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/36171 and here: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/36293
It was fixed in 4.0.5 but not in 3.10.4

Thanks for reporting that issue with Joomla 4.0.5!
Could you please report it at https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues for 3.10.4 too?

I don't see the point in reporting something they are fully aware of.

If nobody creates an issue for it, I don't know if/when it will be fixed...

Having it as an issue in github, will remind devs to fix it.

I ran into some problems when upgrading my sites to 3.10.4 yesterday (same behaviour on multiple sites). If the site is set to use "progressive caching" in the system settings, the menu will no longer work properly.

Each time I click on a new menu item, the content does change as expected, but the previously selected menu item remains highlighted (".active" class on <li>).

Disabling the cache or setting it to "conservative caching" solves the problem … but it took me quite a while to figure that out.

I also filed this issue on github:
https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/36317

Thanks, @efrancis. Confirmed as a new bug in J! 3.10.4 by my own testing.

I updated 3 sites with no problem, fast and good.

Just to mention that I use PHP 7.4.26 and I use the component JotCache 6.2.1 to manage cache.

Thanks again Joomla! team. Keep up the good work and make Joomla! stronger.

Local and live sites updated without issue; very many thanks to all :)

I don't have caching enabled on any site so can't comment on the reported bug.

Like you, John, I don't often use caching especially with websites that I'm always working on or where the content is frequently changing. However, many people build websites whose structure and content rarely changes and they probably use server-side caching to reduce server load and improve "end-user performance". Apparently this latest issue was discovered in J! 4.0.4 and was fixed for J! 4.0.5 but the problem was transferred to J! 3.10.4 along the way. It is a known issue and will be addressed in a future release of J! 3.10 one would expect.

The only other observation that I'd make at this time is that neither J! 3.x nor J! 4.0 are completely ready for PHP 8.1. Yes, you can run J! 3.10.4 or J! 4.0.5 with PHP 8.1 but only if you [effectively] turn off error reporting (i.e. set the Error Reporting Level = "None"). There's still a good deal of work left to do in that department.

Half way through my updates. No issues whatsoever.
Thanks!
