our host upgraded their servers and following the upgrade our site is down. From what I can tell its a compatibility issue. having trouble finding an answer. Any ideas?
So far Ive attempted and come to the conclusion
you can’t spin up a newer version of concrete5 and just link the old database to it. Therefore, in order to get the site to work, I either have to install a new version of concrete5, extract the data from the database, somehow import the old data into the new version. (This is just a rough guess based on my research.)
I can download the site, (public_html/concrete directory) and then see if I can find the sql issues, upload the changes and then try to connect to the website. Then repeat until I find the error?
Its due to php version on server and old concrete5 version. We may fix it by changing php version from the Cpnael(server) or to the version upgrade of ConcreteCMS to the latest that support PHP8+.
