Report Builder plugin - PHP 8.1 compatible?

By Deborah - September 9, 2022

Hi, plugin users. Has anyone tested Report Builder with PHP 8.1?

Report Builder reports I previously created are viewable, but attempting to create a new simple report after upgrading to PHP 8.1 results in "You have an error in your SQL syntax...".

Not being well-versed in MySQL, I don't know if it's my code or if the plugin needs updating. Hoping someone has tried creating a new Report Builder report and can share their results.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Deborah,

I've run a quick test and had no issues using the plugin on PHP 8.1. Given the error, it may just be an issue with the MySQL query itself. If you can share the query you're attempting to use, I can try to spot any obvious errors. You can also try creating a new report that uses the same details as one of your working reports, to help rule out more general issues.
