Error 500 on migrating languages

Problem Before, 2.0.8 if you try to migrate language you can get an error 500. And some of the items like the categories can be translated multiple times like {en:\\\en:\\\......}

Reason This happens because we didn't look into object active status. And script crashed when it tried to translate an un-active record.

Solution Update to 2.0.8+ For the{en:\\\en:\\\......}, if you don't have a lot of data, you can manually edit them from the admin. If you have a lot of data,

  • Export the categories and items table

  • Find replace, so it looks normal

  • Delete categories and items by ignoring foreign keys and import again

Error on uploading an image


"PHP Fileinfo extension must be installed

Reason "PHP Fileinfo extension must be installed/enabled to use Intervention Image."

The project needs the fileinfo extension.


As you can see on the image, it can be enabled from PHP Selector. But if there is no PHP Selector you should have access to WHM.


Initially, we login to WHM and navigate as follows,

Software >> EasyApache 4 >> Customize >> PHP extensions.

Here we search for fileinfo and enable phpx.x-php-fileinfo for all versions. Finally, we click on Review and Provision.

This enables the file extension for all the PHP websites in the server.

Let me know about this.
