Version 2.9.12 crashes site |

Same thing happened to me! Resulted in 100% CPU utilization

php7.4 – MariaDB 10.6

Please revoke the update.

Here are the details what goes wrong:
PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught TypeError: array_merge(): Argument #1 must be of type array, Pods\Whatsit\Pod given in //wp-content/plugins/pods/components/I18n/I18n.php:484
Stack trace: 0 //wp-content/plugins/pods/components/I18n/I18n.php(484): array_merge() 1 //wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(308): Pods_Component_I18n->translate_register_wp_object() 2 //wp-includes/plugin.php(205): WP_Hook->apply_filters() 3 //wp-content/plugins/pods/classes/PodsInit.php(1989): apply_filters() 4 //wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(308): PodsInit->setup_content_types() 5 //wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php(332): WP_Hook->apply_filters() 6 //wp-includes/plugin.php(517): WP_Hook->do_action() 7 //wp-settings.php(617): do_action() 8 //wp-config.php(91): require_once('…') 9 //wp-load.php(50): require_once('…') 10 //wp-login.php(12): require('…') 11 {main}

Very likely, this is the same bug – switching to PHP 7.4 is a temporary workaround.
