My contact forms no longer work. How do I get the stand alone Contact Form solution to work with PHP 7.2

The contact form used to work http://www.praiseinthepark.uk/Contact/contact.php
Now they no longer work (Message does not get sent) following the upgrade to PHP 7.2 by the host provider 1 and 1
As part of the submit process the Thank You confirmation page does load.
I am not getting any error messages - see update to error message

I'd suggest updating DataBridge to the latest version to get the newest libraries. You are using a version from 7 years ago.

To fix this particular issue, I can attach the latest version of the include file you are getting the error in. But you will likely run into other issues with other extensions since the version you are using was created many years before php7 was released.

Hi Ray and thank you!
I do have Data Bridge v1 (Current version: 1.2.4) Released: November 5, 2017. But did not use it to create the forms

I do understand this is not the most recent release as the product is now at V2 but if the version that I have is compatible, at least I can save a wedge of money! At least until this whole Brexit saga is finished and the sterling / USD Fx improves! :-)

I'd suggest staying on php6 or php5 until you are ready to upgrade. The software you are running wasn't designed for php7. I'll try to help, but the issues may be overwhelming and a simple fix is to use an older version of php to match the code you are running.

Thanks Ray, I tried out the updated script and more errors surfaced - so I will take your advice and 'downgrade' the PHP version. I checked with my Host provider and it is possible, though I do end up paying an extra support fee.
I will update this message once I have completed the necessary steps.
Thanks - regards, Don
