All add-ons currently require PHP 7.4 or greater.

On July 4th 2024 PHP 8.2 will be the new minimum requirement for all add-ons. Expect any add-on released after that date to require 8.2 or greater. Some releases may not immediately take advantage of 8.x specific features in PHP, which means you might, be able to continue using new releases in PHP 7.4, however, if you experience an error the first thing you should do is update to PHP 8.2 then create a support ticket if the error persists.

Ticket: Running imports after saving

Status Resolved
Add-on / Version DataGrab 4.0.1
EE Version 6.2.7

We set up a new import to test the new version of Datagrab and I’m running into an issue when I try to run the import after saving it.

The first time I tried to run it I got the warning seen in the attached screenshot.

All subsequent click on the start import button, bring up the bar in the status column, like it’s going to run, but the import does not start.

Based on the log file (attached) it looks like an issue with a relationship field is throwing an error and the import is failing because of that.

Any ideas on how to proceed.

I’ll look at that first unlink() error, but you’ll need to provide an error log for the relationship issue.

I don’t see a log file…

Can you share the log file via Dropbox or something?
