    Copied new EF folder to site via FTP as I usually do. Now the sites just load a white screen. Linode is the host platform. Any ideas what could be going on? Everything looks fine from FTP.


    Hey Clifford,

    Can you please check server log for error?

    Best regards,


    Is that something I can check via FTP? Thx


    @cnovery please update your PHP version to at least 5.6. Better to 7.1. Most hosting providers allow switching the PHP version from their customer control panel.


    Thank you!
    I am in contact with them to see how to check version and upgrade it. My control panel does not actually have info on PHP. I also found error log with many errors such as:

    “PHP Fatal error: Can’t use function return value in write context in /home/clifford/public/ on line 2556
    [Sat Jan 20 08:52:41 2018] [error]”



    Updating to PHP 7 or 7.1 should likely fix your problems, please let us know if you should need any further help from us.

    Best regards,


    Thank you everyone. We upgraded to 5.6 and the sites are both operational again! I really appreciate the prompt and helpful feedback here!
