Hi there, 7.4 support is not yet implemented, please drop to 7.3. Requirements can be found here: https://www.mautic.org/download/requirements.

Hi @rcheesley,
thanks but this is not the solution. The same error with PHP 7.2.31
Is correct that in the log appears home2 instead of home???

php --version

Clear the cache as the user that owns the mautic directory, this might help: Please How are CACHES deleted Mautic 3?

Let us know how it goes!

Sounds to me like file/folder permission issues. Take a look at the docs here:

@devsrealm @rcheesley thanks a lot.
Our provider recently moved the mautic instance to another server cause to server problems. They make some mistakes in the folders’ property :mask:
