As you may already know, the JoomlaWorks Forum is powered by Kunena (the only decent forum component for Joomla).
Unfortunately, the latest update for Kunena has seemingly broken all code snippets (old and new) in the forum.
Until this message is removed, please paste any code as regular text - in other words, don't use the [code]...[/code] tags in Kunena's post editor.
K2 image upload not working with PHP 7.4
I moved a new site I've just completed to PHP version 7.4 but when I tried to add an image to a K2 item under the image tab, it failed to upload. I tried other images and they failed too. There was a warning message but unfortunately it was behind the 'Item saved' message so unable to read it all - see attachment.
I tried logging in from Chrome (I was using Firefox) and that didn't help.
I reverted the site back to PHP 7.2 and tried again, and it then worked fine and the image was uploaded.
Joomla version is 3.9.12
K2 version is 2.10.2
I've not installed any third party k2 extensions, this is just a basic site and I wanted to use k2 for a blog. I've attached the FPA report if that helps.
It could just be that I need to enable a PHP setting in cPanel maybe? I've also attached screenshot of settings. I enabled the 2 under 'N' as previously when I tried to switch to 7.4 on a Joomla site it didn't work at all. A search suggested this fix but I only just got around to trying it.
I have another site I can test this on which is currently running on 7.4.
However, I wound strongly recommend installing most, only excluding the ones you KNOW you won't use, e.g. mongodb, redis, newrelic etc.
Enabling the GD php extension sorted this.
I love the way you think that I would know which ones were not needed! I've searched for a list of recommended php extensions for Joomla but got nowhere. I did find one for Wordpress! Even where there are tooltips explaining it, it doesn't make me any the wiser! I tried enabling one that looked like it would be needed, but it refused saying it would conflict. I think I'd have to google every one, maybe when I have a spare afternoon, ahem!
I've never had to touch these before, the default setup always seems to have worked in the past.
Thank you for your help
If you get a specific conflict error, share it back with us and I'll tell you what to do.
