I am volunteering for a nonprofit and they are using WordPress. Almost all my CiviCRM experience is in Drupal so I am having a bit of trouble. We just created a new site to house WordPress and it is version 6.4.3. We are running PHP 8.1.27. I am trying to use CiviCRM 5.67.3.

Right now I am doing a fresh install and then I am going to bring over our existing database. We are using 5.67.3 because the current database is on 5.67.1.

This is all I see when I load CiviCRM on the admin side. WordPress admin screen that says "CiviCRM Home" and then has the CiviCRM footer but no other CiviCRM content. In the screenshot you can see the WordPress admin screen that says "CiviCRM Home" and then has the CiviCRM footer but no other CiviCRM content.

Clicking on the System Status Error link simply reloads the page.

I am able to get to wp-admin/admin.php?page=civi_options.

I have tried clearing the cache from the UI and from CV.

The instance of CiviCRM was installed from cv version v0.3.27.

Any help figuring this out is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Steve

  • Can you confirm what instructions you followed for moving a civicrm Db from Drupal to civicrm? This docs.civicrm.org/sysadmin/en/latest/misc/switch-servers?

  • I have not done that part yet. I am first trying to just do a new install and make sure I know all the paths in the settings file before moving over. Thanks!

  • WordPress is pretty cut and dry - been running it and Civi for years. Install WP, and then install the Civi plugin from the WP plugin library. Couple things I would look at: First, delete it all out including the db's. Second, make sure that your PHP is 8.1.x Third install the CiviCRM Admin Utilities plugin as it does a bunch of cool things. Not in here a lot, but try that and I will check back later.
