    Maybe you forgot to install or activate a PHP extension when you upgraded to version 8?

    Put your WordPress blog in debugging mode:
    1. Edit your wp-config.php
    2. Search for:
    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    3. Replace with:
    define('WP_DEBUG', true);
    4. Add this line below:
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

    Then, access NinjaFirewall’s settings and when you get the 500 error, check the PHP error log located in “/wp-content/debug.log”.

    The problem occurs because the folder nfwlog has to be removed by hand after switching php version.
