Hi @mikeyhodl

We’ll need some more information here. What version of PHP are you using? Also, please post the entire Fatal Error from your error log - what you’ve shared so far isn’t quite enough for us to be able to help you.

“gettext” was not activated for php on your server.

Ask your server administrators to install/enable this.
