CSV Export failing.

    Hi,

    I’m trying to export the csv file from my shop. There are about 10000 products in the shop. But it keeps failing and sometimes i get this error

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) in /home4/qlr7/public_html/viphealthstore.com/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1542

    This might have something to do with wordpress / server but i’m not sure.

    Does anyone have any ideas or tips ?

    Your server/hosting does not have enough memory to complete the export. Try to allocate some more memory in php.ini or try some other csv export plugin (which can handle large amount of products).

    Kind regards,

    Richard

    I will try the memory thing.. is that something i can change via FTP ? .. or how do i change it ?

    Also if i was to try an export plugin how would it know where to look for the products and export them correctly so I can import them again ?

    thanks.

    David, if you have issues with export, you are going to struggle even more with import, as import requires more resources.

    Please find attached a php.ini file – just unzip it to your WordPress root directory (via FTP).

    You can change the values inside the php.ini to suit your needs.

    Kind regards,

    Richard

    There are no ‘guidelines’, but if you want more info on all those parameters, try to look it up on Google.

    Having the same issue. I’ve got 5000 listings in Directory Press and my CSV will not export. Claims a server error. In addition, it will not upload any more than 500-600 at a time. Help.

    I’ve already tried the php.ini file loaded in my root directory. It didn’t help.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    Have you tried using any CSV export plugin? I have made one (you can find it on my website), but it is not free.

    Kind regards,

    I have not but will consider it.
    Does it export custom fields within Directory Press?

    Just noticed you’re in the UK. I’m at a US University at the Institute for Disability Studies and we can’t purchase from foreign entities. I guess I’ll keep looking but thanks for the help.

    Mark and PremiumPress are also in the UK – how could you purchase the PremiumPress themes then? 😉
