Required PHP function not found : getimagesize

Post by Harriers9 »

I'm trying to update my board through Softaculous but when I start with the back up I get this message:

Required PHP function not found : getimagesize

I know that it's long overdue but I'm trying to go from 3.2.4 up to 3.3.12

How do I cure this problem please?

For phpBB 3.3.12 the PHP version must be at least 7.2
Sorry for my English ... I do my best!

phpBB: 3.3.12 | PHP: 8.3.7

It is not recommended to update any phpBB boards through third party updaters, use the full package (available here) and do the update according to this guide using the full package.

Thanks for the advice so far but it doesn't answer my question.

How do I return/activate getimagesize into my existing install?

getimagesize is a PHP extension therefore you install the extension on your server not within phpBB. https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.getimagesize.php

Thanks for that. Looks like I'll have to find a different option then.
