We are currently using Moodle version 2.8.1+ and want to upgrade. In order to do this I had to get our version of PhP upgraded to 7.1 by our webhosts. Now, we cannot add new users.
The error message is: "Exception - Using $this when not in object context"
When clicked it shows a page with the message: 'error/moodle/generalexceptionmessage
On our Environment page there is a status message 'Check' in red for the database:
|database||mysql (5.5.5-10.1.40-MariaDB)||version 5.5.31 is required and you are running 22.214.171.124.1.40||Ch|
I would be grateful for any advice
