    I changed the php version from 7.0 to 8.0 on my cloned site, then hit the reboot button. The only thing that happened was taking my site offline with the message: “There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.”

    Do I need to wait for the reboot to work? Or is this an error you need to address? Site no longer available.

    Hi Patricia,

    There is no need to reboot after changing PHP version; the PHP engine restarts itself and there’s no benefit to restarting everything else via rebooting.

    If you are seeing that message, then WordPress is telling you that there was a PHP error. So very likely one of your components is not PHP 8 compatible, and you’ll need to switch back to PHP 7.X and upgrade it.

    Thanks. I did downgrade and did not hit reboot and that did the trick.
