The archive file named above must be the
name of the archive file placed in the root path (character for character). When downloading the package files make sure both files are from the same package line.
If the contents of the archive were manually transferred to this location without the archive file then simply create a temp file named with the exact name shown above and place the file in the same directory as the installer.php file. The temp file will not need to contain any data. Afterward, refresh this page and continue with the install process.
The system validation checks help to make sure the system is ready for install.
PHP Safe Mode:
The deployment path must be writable by PHP in order to extract the archive file. Incorrect permissions and extension such as
can sometimes interfere with PHP being able to write/extract files. Please see the
help link for complete details. PHP with
should be disabled. If Safe Mode is enabled then please contact your hosting provider or server administrator to disable PHP safe mode.
Support for the PHP

The detection for this call uses the function_exists('mysqli_connect') call.
This server is running PHP:
A minimum of PHP 5.2.17 is required
. Contact your hosting provider or server administrator and let them know you would like to upgrade your PHP version.
This package is 729 day(s) old. Packages older than 180 days might be considered stale. It is recommended to build a new package unless your aware of the content and its data. This is message is simply a recommendation.
PHP Version 5.2
This server is currently running PHP version [5.6.35]
Duplicator allows PHP 5.2 to be used during install but does not officially support it. If you're using PHP 5.2 we strongly recommend NOT using it and having your host upgrade to a newer more stable, secure and widely supported version. The
end of life for PHP 5.2
was in January of 2011 and is not recommended for use.
Many plugin and theme authors are no longer supporting PHP 5.2 and trying to use it can result in site wide problems and compatibility warnings and errors. Please note if you continue with the install using PHP 5.2 the Duplicator support team will not be able to help with issues or troubleshoot your site. If your server is running
please feel free to reach out for help if you run into issues with your migration/install.
PHP Version Mismatch
You are migrating site from the PHP 5.4.45 to the PHP 5.6.35
If this servers PHP version is different to the PHP version of your package was created it might cause problems with proper functioning of your website and/or plugins and themes. It is highly recommended to try and use the same version of PHP if you are able to do so.
PHP Open Base
is enabled and your having issues getting your site to install properly; please work with your host and follow these steps to prevent issues:
Disable the open_basedir setting in the php.ini file
If the host will not disable, then add the path below to the open_basedir setting in the php.ini
Save the settings and restart the web server
Note: This warning will still show if you choose option #2 and open_basedir is enabled, but should allow the installer to run properly. Please work with your hosting provider or server administrator to set this up correctly.
(detection limit is set at 300MB)
(zero means not limit)
setting is used to determine how long a PHP process is allowed to run. If the setting is too small and the archive file size is too large then PHP may not have enough time to finish running before the process is killed causing a timeout.
Duplicator attempts to turn off the timeout by using the
setting. If this notice shows as a warning then it is still safe to continue with the install. However, if a timeout occurs then you will need to consider working with the max_execution_time setting or extracting the archive file using the 'Manual Archive Extraction' method. Please see the
help link for more details.
This archive is not a multisite
Duplicator does not support WordPress multisite migrations. We recommend using Duplicator Pro which currently supports full multisite migrations and subsite to standalone site migrations.
While it is not recommended you can still continue with the build of this package. Please note that after the install the site may not be working correctly. Additional manual custom configurations will need to be made to finalize this multisite migration.
