I Have Encountered An Error
Error: “An error has occurred. class:Error;msg:Call to undefined function curl_init();code:0;line:129 ?”
You should install cURL extension in your PHP installation then try again. If you have no idea how to do this, contact your host.
Error: “Backup error: Allowed memory size of xxxxxxxxxx bytes exhausted (tried to allocate xxxxxxxxxx bytes), task id: wpvivid-xxxxxxxxxxxxx.”
This error often occurs while creating a backup for a website with an oversized database. In this case, the size of database is larger than the value of memory limit in php.ini file. As a result, there will be no sufficient memory to compress the database.
To avoid that, please try using the solutions below to modify memory limit in php.ini file, and make sure the value is larger than the database size:
1. Increase PHP memory limit.
Please try to contact your web hosting provider for changing PHP memory limit, or modify it by yourself as the administrator role if your website is hosting on VPS or dedicated server.
2. Upgrade your web hosting plan.
