Requirements
  • ExpressionEngine 6.2 or greater
  • PHP 7.2 or greater
DataGrab will also attempt to set some PHP variables to improve it's performance and hopefully avoid errors. Below is a list of the variables it will set. For this reason, it is best to make sure ini_set() is not in PHP's disabled_functions directive (some shared hosting providers will disable ini_set())
error_log
DataGrab will log its import status. This is used for self debugging, and when reporting support issues. Read more about the logging options.
auto_detect_line_endings
When using the CSV import type, DataGrab will attempt to enable the auto_detect_line_endings option.
pcre.backtrack_limit
When using the Wordpress import type, DataGrab will attempt to set the pcre.backtrack_limit to 250000.
memory_limit
When the import process runs, DataGrab will attempt to set the PHP memory_limit to 1G for the duration of the import to help ensure the import is successful.
