Support » Plugin: Modern Events Calendar Lite » MEC Lite will not activate on site – constant timeout error

  • Resolved guerre64


    I have previously setup MEC Lite on a staging/development version of the live site – same plugins (actually even more plugins on the staging version, but still all the same versions of the identical plugins).

    MEC Lite installs without a problem on the live site, but just will not activate.

    There is a constant error:

    Request Timeout
    This request takes too long to process, it is timed out by the server. If it should not be timed out, please contact administrator of this web site to increase ‘Connection Timeout’.

    I have increased all php settings to ridiculous levels (not required on the staging server by the way, where the settings are minimal at best) and still, the plugin just will not activate.

    What the hell?

    Any ideas please?

    Oh, and to top it off – even though the plugin is not active, I get 2 automated emails saying:

    “Your event gets published. You can check it below”

    with a URL that then obviously goes to a 404 page because MEC is not active.

    How is this even possible??

    Finally got this to work – there were php setting conflicts which were defaulting the site to php7.3, which obviously does not work with MEC Lite.

    Once I was able to get php7.4 active, the plugin activated.

    All sorted.
