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:
- 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.
