    (@peterscaffidi)


    I have recently started seeing this in my php error log. Can you give me any insight as to what it means and how I might resolve it?

    PHP Fatal error: ob_start(): Cannot use output buffering in output buffering display handlers in /wp-content/plugins/mailchimp-for-wp/includes/integrations/class-integration.php on line 248

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Could it be that your server is short on memory?

    This error might be caused by PHP settings (output handler or zlib compression). If this is indeed the case you can ask your hosting provider for help on that.

    I’ve reported this issue to our developer as well, he might need a couple of days to look into this for you.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    Hi Lab Lover,

    The error indicates that your server is running an “output handler” that is incompatible with a technique used in our plugin, and used widely by many WordPress plugins. Are you running a plugin like W3 Total Cache by any chance? If so, could you try temporarily disabling that to see if the error persists?

    Thanks in advance!

    Danny and Lap, thanks for replying. I have had my host increase the amount of memory available for scripts from 128 to 256. I have adjusted the wp-config file to avail the site of the increased memory. I cannot yet say if that solved the problem.

    As for a caching plugin, I am not running one nor am I using the built-in WordPress caching function. Below is a list of the active plugins on the site, are there any which you think might be causing a conflict? Thanks for your assistance. Oh, the website is bpdglobal.com

    Did you already ask your hosting provider for support on this?
    Could you ask them if they are using Apache something else as hosting software?

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but going to a hosting company for assistance with this kind of problem is akin to asking my wife to help me find a date for Friday night.

    It appears the problem is a conflict with another plugin, I will wait another day before I draw that conclusion and ask Danny to take a look at the issue. Hopefully, it will not turn into a case of one plugin author pointing a finger at the author of another plugin.

    If it’s a compatibility issue with another plugin you can try switching all plugins off and then turning them on 1 by 1 until the issue reappears so at least we know between what two plugins the issue comes up.

    Thanks!
