File upload fails with php 7.0+

posts: 210 Ukraine


I just upgraded several Tiki installations to the latest 18.6 (via Softaculous) than changed PHP to v. 7.3 and I still get this error -

"File Upload Failed:
Syntax Error:
Unexpected end of
JSON input"

I tested uploading to File Galleries with both a simple .jpg and .xls, but I get the same red error message. Keep in mind, this is shared hosting.

I would like to update to Tik 21x but am pretty worried that uploading to File Galleries will not work.

Does anyone know what this error message means, and, what can be done about it?
