Hello Magento Friends,

I am back with another solution for the errors you might face while working with Magento 2. Today I am going to explain How to Fix PHP Fatal Error “Call to Undefined Function str_contains()” After Upgrading to Magento 2.4.x.

Upgrading is essential to enhance store performance and security. Smoothly upgrade to the newest Magento version.

When Magento merchants try to upgrade to Magento 2.4.x, they may come across the below error

“Call to undefined function Magento\Framework\Filesystem\Directory\str_contains() in <…>/magento/vendor/magento/framework/Filesystem/Directory/DenyListPathValidator.php:74”

This error is caused because the str_contains() function is supported by PHP 8 and Magento version 2.4.3 and 2.3.7-p1 are compatible with PHP 7.4. However, this issue will be fixed in upcoming releases, Magento 2.4.4, 2.4.3-p1, and 2.3.7-p2. 

As for now, let us find a way to solve the error

How to Fix PHP Fatal Error Call to Undefined Function str_contains() After Upgrading to Magento 2.4.x?

Step 1: Open the terminal and run the below command from the Magento root folder.

Step 2: Then, run the Magento setup upgrade command to verify whether an issue is fixed or not


By doing so you can eliminate PHP Fatal error after upgrading the Magento 2 version. I have also provided the solution for Currency Symbol Not Showing or Unable to Serialize Value errors while upgrading the Magento 2 version.
