Hi,

I installed WPForo for the first time and tried to activate and got the following:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function ctype_digit() in /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04ar/b582/nf.*******/wp_site_1623293614/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/functions.php:1002 Stack trace: #0 /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04ar/b582/nf.****/wp_site_1623293614/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/functions.php(2320): wpforo_bigintval('') #1 /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04ar/b582/nf.****/wp_site_1623293614/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/functions.php(1314): wpforo_wp_url_to_postid('wp-admin/plugin...') #2 /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04ar/b582/nf.****/wp_site_1623293614/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/functions-installation.php(844): wpforo_clean_cache('option') #3 /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04ar/b582/nf.****/wp_site_1623293614/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/functions-installation.php(60): wpforo_fix_installed_options() #4 /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04ar/b582/nf.****/wp_site_1623293614/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/functions-install in /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04ar/b582/nf.*******/wp_site_1623293614/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-includes/functions.php on line 1002

 

Any ideas? Any known conflicts with other plugins?

Thanks

Hi @uvnyc,

Please contact to your hosting support and ask them WHY my server PHP doesn't recognize  ctype_digit() function? Why I'm getting this error. Please enable ctype_digit()  for my PHP ASAP!!!

That's it.

This is your hosting issue and this should be supported by default. According to http://php.net/manual/en/ctype.installation.php Beginning with PHP 4.2.0 these functions are enabled by default. The hosting support should configure and compile PHP with –enable-ctype . This should never be disabled, this is a very often used function of PHP.

@robert Thanks for your suggestion Robert. 

I am just a somewhat savvy end-user so I couldn't tell the source of this issue. I will definitely reach out to the hosting company, although I managed to downgrade the PHP version through my account to 7.3 from 7.4 and now it works. Probably not a good long-term solution though....
