Error after new installation - Proxmox

Hi I have emons cms installed on proxmox ve Ubuntu 22 container i get the following errors on the login screen

used to work alright but had to rebuild due to harddrive crash

How did you do the install? Last time I did it I used an Ubuntu Container template then ran the install script.

Wot no automated snapshots? For me that is the beauty of PVE; automated container snapshots to a NAS.

Ah, what version of PHP?

I also used the Ubuntu Container template (22.0), and the script.
Before it was on ubuntu 20 container
(EmonScripts/ at master · openenergymonitor/EmonScripts · GitHub)
yes, I’m in the process of building a NAS box, currently don’t have any.

will check and let you know

My most recent SDImange based system is PHP 7.3 so that could be the issue (it looks like it from the error messages.

@TrystanLea - What version of PHP is Emoncms 11 compatible with? Just checked and my most up to date machine is running PHP 7.3 which is very nearly EOL.

Actually I think I just upgraded in place so PHP didn’t get updated.

Yes it is still a Buster base image system :frowning: Really ought to update it, but if it ain’t broke…

There is a fix which worked for mqtt error during installation but nothing for php PHP8 & making the emoncms_mqtt service work · Issue #144 · openenergymonitor/EmonScripts · GitHub

I upgraded a Ubuntu 20 LTS VM to 22 LTS and it seems to remove old php versions (7.4.3 in my case) and plonk 8.1.2 on there.

So I would imagine any brand new 22 LTS would be 8.1.x out of the box.

This obviously broke emoncms, so I reverted and left it as is for now.
