PHP extension is missing.
The PHP extension exif is needed, however, it is not loaded into the domains PHP version.
First, check and ensure that the extension is not built into PHP for the expected domain:
[05:15:57 cpanel root@93498582 ~]cPs# ea-php73 -m | grep -i exif
[05:16:00 cpanel root@93498582 ~]cPs#
Using the EasyApache4 interface, within "PHP Extensions" locate the "exif" extension and proceeded to install it. Once installed, the extension will be loaded automatically.
