Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » PHP 8.1 compatible?

  • Resolved eugenevanderhost


    We get this on 8.1.

    Table ‘xxxx_wp.yoast_wp_seo_models_indexable’ doesn’t exist

    Table isn’t actually there. Recreating tables using table and indexing tools doesn’t work.

    To me it looks like a naming problem, the software isn’t called “yoast_wp_seo” anymore?

    Full log:

    Hello Eugene,

    We are sorry about the issue you experienced with our plugin and PHP 8. Unfortunately, we haven’t yet fully tested the plugin with PHP version 8. The entire WordPress community is still working on it. You can read the

    For Yoast SEO to run properly, you should have a PHP version of 5.6.20 or higher. In fact, we recommend PHP version 7.3 or above. Before you upgrade to a higher PHP version, check if your WordPress site is ready for it. Read this helpful article to learn how to update your PHP version. Also, your PHP memory should be 256M or greater.

    Thank you.

    I also disabled YOAST SEO because it is not compatible with PHP 8.1.
    Will probably enable it again once the bug is fixed.

    Hi @roundaboutweb

    Are you also experiencing a similar error from the log as per the forum thread starter?

    If not, we invite you to create your own topic so we can help assist you with your concern.

    Otherwise, we do know that since PHP 8.1 was launched just last November 25, 2021, there certainly might be issues with compatibility with not just Yoast SEO, but other plugins and WordPress itself.

    I am testing PHP 8.1 in different WordPress installations. So far I have noticed only one error in connection with YOAST SEO.

    PHP error log:

    @cf00 @roundaboutweb @eugenevanderhost

    We highly appreciate your patience while we investigated and confirmed the issue.

    As per feedback received from our developers, at the moment we support PHP 8 but we do work towards PHP 8.1 compatibility. WordPress and Yoast are not yet fully compatible yet with it.

    Once the specific version is supported all of our customers and users will be informed, via our newsletter and changelog updates.

    The current workaround would be to downgrade PHP to v8.0 version.

    If you are interested in learning more about PHP 8 compatibility, please have a look at our 2020 WordPress and PHP 8 compatibility reports.

    Also, you can find the opened GH issue here. We always encourage our users to contribute to our plugin, not just by submitting issues but also by submitting patches. If you (or someone else) decide(s) to write a patch for this issue, we’ll gladly include it after some code review.

    We understand that this might not be the answer you were expecting, but we hope that you can understand.

    This issue is not resolved! WordPress works perfectly on PHP 8.1, but Yoast SEO does not. I am getting the same error as the OP on 6 websites.

    would love to see if there’s a solution for those errors in this topic:

    I have the same error as the people above, everything works on php 8.1 except the Yoast SEO plugin. If you disable it, the site works fine, and if you enable it, the site does not work.



    They said they will release a fix in 17.9, the next version, but in the meantime, I moved away to another plugin, because I couldn’t leave client sites without an SEO solution.
