Digi has not been updated since php 3.3.2 so that may well be the source of your problem.

The easy way to tell is to switch to prosilver and see if the error still happens.


EDIT:- My error, I thought I was in 3.3.x support, please ignore me

Since he is only on phpBB 3.2.9, this should be fine for him

What PHP version do you have?

Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

7.0.10
That version has been end-of-life for almost 4 years per PHP: Unsupported Branches.

In addition, the most recent version of phpBB 3.2 is phpBB 3.2.11 which contains security fixes.

Apologies, I hadn't notice that the first post was edited :oops:

When you updated your board to 3.2.8 which package did you use? If Changed Files package: did you remove the old vendor folder and upload the version from the Changed Files package.

Actually P.I. suggests (not explicitly but it's implied) to update your board to 3.2.11 (and then test with prosilver)

I've updated to 3.2.11, but problem still exists. PHP update to 7.3.6 also didn't work out.

Actually, I can't remember what was the last change on that board, that was a long time ago. I've selected "Update from 3.2.8" in Support Request Template, because it forced me to choose something.

phpbb 3.2.x isn't compatible with PHP 7.3

Yeah, I know. I've just tried another option. Now there is 7.0.10.

Your cookie domain is currently drono.pl
Change that to .drono.pl (note the leading dot) (but I don't think this will solve the issue here).
