Problem with 'apache_getenv' since upgrading to PHP 8

  • Posted October 10, 2021

Hey there,

I’m hoping to get some help with an Apache/PHP 8 issue I’m encountering. Since upgrading to PHP 8 on my droplet, my logs have been outputting the following error:

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function apache_getenv() ...

I’m a bit stumped with how to fix this or even where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

For reference, my droplet is running Ubuntu 18.04.5

UPDATE: Using getenv() solved my overarching problem of grab environmental variables.

I still haven’t figured why apache_getenv doesn’t work.
