v2.6.0patch2 released to fix support for PHP v8.0 & MySQL 8 and provide initial support for PHP v8.1

edited February 2022 in Announcements
NOTE: DO NOT INSTALL THIS PATCH ON A SERVER RUNNING PHP v5.5.x!!! Your web site will no longer run! PHP versions older than v5.6 are very obsolete and we do not support them. The next version may also remove support for PHP v5.6 and v7.0 since they are considered obsolete.

This patch fixes support for PHP v8.0 and provides initial support for PHP v8.1. It compensates for MySQL v8 which uses a new 'rank' keyword and prevents some database interaction on tables using the 'rank' field. In addition to many other fixes and tweaks, it updates many 3rd party libraries.. All Exponent CMS users running at least PHP version 5.6 are encouraged to move their installations to v2.6.0 and to install this patch!! Patch #2 to v2.6.0 is found at
