I'm using php-fpm 8.2.7 nginx/1.22.1 and
get the following Error:

Undefined constant "SECURE_AUTH_COOKIE" in wordpress-dir/wp-includes/pluggable.php:925

Thanks for the report @thdr. Looking at the stack trace for the error, the root cause of this problem is that the contact-forms-builder plugin is calling wp_get_current_user() too early in the loading process, before WordPress has fully initialised. You should report this problem to the authors of the contact-forms-builder plugin.

Regards and good luck
