Strange behaviour with PHP 7.2 and Vanilla 2.6.4 for various plugins

This discussion is related to the Vanilla addon.
edited December 1 in Vanilla 2.6 Help

I have PHP 7.2.11 installed on my machine and am running Vanilla 2.6.4.

I had a problem with displaying the dashboard (garbage link below showing on the screen) and narrowed that down to it not liking the Vanilla Statistics plugin so disabled that.

I seem to have a similar issue now with Flagging. When I go to the moderation page I get this garbage displayed at the top with flagging.php showing up within that garbage.

**�%�Zflagging.php�VmO�8�ί��@N���Bi���b9(wZ�ɴ��ؑ�,�V���n����HU{<���33��Eb�΄�,ag77W㋳���5k��K�'0�4� �P��%�n!lw�q�6N"���S'�=�txl9�*a%�����9����d+�|�&�u�*ٻ��hc���h�����!��[{ښ�#s�ˢ��߀m�.��?� ����,�i���:�ndIN��ڛ�Zf|�V!���į5���u�I�����Q���ť~Vɻ:����D�CH�n?6���J�R|2�������x����\�48A��6-�%�Y��ua�\��z�� **

I went into plugins to disable the flagging plugin which appeared to work but now when I click on the moderation link the URL points at https://myURL/plugin/flagging and I can't get that screen to appear at all which I assume is because it doesn't like the fact I've switched flagging off.

Any ideas why that PHP routine would appear corrupt at all? I've had a good search around and can't find similar behaviour like it anywhere else so am puzzled at the moment

    perhaps multibyte configuration with php is not set correctly.

    Pragmatism is all I have to offer. Avoiding the sidelines and providing centerline pro-tips.
