Webservices and PHP8

20 June 2023, 20:48

We had our webservices working under PHP7.4, but as soon as we switch our server to PHP8.0 we get the following error:


 'error_message' => '[ValueError]: mysqli_stmt::bind_param(): Argument #1 ($types) cannot be empty',
'error_rendered' => 'A nonrecoverable error occurred. This probably means you have encountered a bug in the system',


Is this known? PHP 7.4 is deprecated and we are forced to go to PHP8. I hope there's already a fix for this. We are running Mahara 22.10.0

Hi Richard,

Only the Mahara versions 23.04 and onwards will have PHP 8.1 compatibility. This release is not available to the public. For more info, see: Download Mahara

Kind regards,
