UPDATE: 11/30/2017 UTC 18:53: We have now rolled back our PHP version to 7.0.25 Your NextGEN plugin should function as it did prior to our PHP upgrade.
With our PHP upgrade from 7.0.25 to 7.0.26 , we have discovered an issue with the NextGEN Gallery plugin. The PHP upgrade is causing a PHP Fatal error and Segfault with this particular plugin. We have found this to be a reported issue on the plugin’s support forums as well:
After discussions with the plugin’s developers. we found the bug to be within the PHP release itself and not the actual plugin. We are currently in process of reverting back to an earlier version of PHP to avoid this issue until a new release is out with a fix.
As always, if you have any questions , please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team:
