Dreamhost recently upgraded my Concrete5 site to PHP 8.1 and I received notices from that process that it found no problems. However, this morning, when I first tried to access it after the update (after a hiatus from work), I found that when I click past the plain HTML “front page,” a completely blank (white) page is displayed. No attempt to refresh the page, in more than one browser, brought up the PHP portion of the site. I am using one of the basic, default site styles. Nothing fancy at all: www.ffez.com/site
I can roll back to PHP v7.4, but only temporarily.
I attempted to use the admin page to download an update, but it only shows that version 8.5.12 is available, not version 9—and the download process failed, anyway. However, my understanding is that Concrete5 version 8 is not compatible with PHP 8.1.
Is there a support page that can show me exactly how to update to version 9? Assume that nothing “automatic” will work, as that has been my experience in the past with full number versions. Thanks!
