Server/hosting requirements

First make sure that you have installed Estatik Premium RETS version and then proceed. There is no RETS import option in Estatik PRO or Simple version.

When it comes to actually processing the images and other data elements a server setting called the max_execution_time setting plays a role. This is the most often error that you can get if your max_execution time is not enough.

Beside this, there are some others  important requirements that your hosting provider server should have:

  • mod_fcgid=off
  • safe_mode=off
  • open_basedir=NULL
  • RLimitMEM parameter's value of Apache = 20MB
  • Response body limit( SecResponseBodyLimit ) =20MB

The options below also are a must:

  • php 7.1.x or higher
  • cURL support = enabled
  • allow_url_fopen = on

 

php.ini file settings:

  • memory_limit = 256M - 10* 24M
  • max_input_vars = 20000
  • max_execution_time = 360 or more
  • max_input_time = 600
  • upload_max_filesize = 30M or more

Also you need to open TCP ports 6103, 6160, 8080 if you have errors including them in result of connection attempt.

IMPORTANT: If your server doesn't meet the above mentioned requirements, the following errors can appear:

-  listings imported without data (empty),

-  server lags,

-  website crash,

-  and others.

 

If you have a website built on wordpress.com or other service that do not provide full control of the website, we recommend to find self-hosted solutions otherwise our team will not be able to setup and control automatic import via server cron.
