"No discussions were found" before signing in

I have a situation where if I visit my forum from a new browser, everything looks normal except the list of discussions is empty and just says "No discussions were found." Once I sign in all of the discussions appear as normal. I don't have private communities enabled, and this behavior occurs even using the default theme and with all plugins disabled. The behavior also persists when I delete the cache folder.

This is with Vanilla 2.8, PHP 7.0.33, installed via Installatron on shared hosting. I'm not sure what debug information would be relevant, but any ideas?

    You should check your permission setup. Does your guest role have the Discussions.View permission?

  • It looks like updating to PHP 7.2 fixed it, thanks!
