Error in WordPress Dashboard after installing

  • Hello,
    I’ve just installed Rank Math on my website WordPress + Woocommerce to replace Yoast Seo.
    After the configuration, my Dashboard is not accessible anymore and it shows that there is a conflict with Rank Math.

    Here the report of the issue:

    An error E_ERROR was caused on line 75 of the file /public_html/wp-content/plugins/seo-by-rank-math/includes/modules/analytics/class-summary.php.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting the support, and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Please ensure you are installing the latest version of Rank Math:

    Can you please check if you are using the recommended PHP version? You may check the system requirements here: If the recommended system requirements are met, please try to reinstall Rank Math plugin.

    If the issue persists, we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WordPress & FTP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Thank you for your help!
    Reading the link you’ve posted I’ve noticed that the issue was the PHP version.
    My server run PHP 8.0 so I’ve downgraded it to PHP 7.4 and now it works.
    Do you know if it will be compatible with PHP 8.0 in the near future?

    Thank you again for your help!


    I am glad that this resolves your issue.

    Our developers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix for the next update. You may keep track of our changelog page here:

    If you don’t mind me asking, could you please leave us a review (if you haven’t already) on about your overall experience with Rank Math? We appreciate your time and patience.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.
