The latest version of the plugin brings down my site. I am running the most recent wordpress and anytime I attempt to upgrade my PHP beyond 7.1 event expresso brings down the site. The most recent version of plug in no longer supports the older PHP so I am at a bit of an impass

The above error means PHP ctpye module has not been enabled on the version of PHP your server is running:

https://www.php.net/manual/en/book.ctype.php

You may have options to enable that module within your host’s control panel, if not, you will need to contact your host and have them enable it for you.

Thank you, not sure why the host would not include this module by default. When I enable it Event Espresso works! Yay however it crashes my theme, Avada. Grr. Thanks for the help, I will reach out to the theme author for insight. I appreciate the fast response from you guys.
