    I’ve a couple of question I hope you can answer to.
    This is the first time I use WP.
    I subscribed a linux hosting with WP (WordPress 4.5.3) preinstalled.
    I installed WooCommerce, Symbiostock lite and Pro.
    It’s a little hard to do all this working fine…

    1) Somewhear I read I can run WooCommerce setup later. But I do not find how to do this now.
    2) I uploaded my photos in the default /ss_media/new folder; when I manually run cron, I get these error messages:

    Memory at Start: 44MLoad at Start: 2M2 product integrity checks completed

    Warning: array_keys() expects parameter 1 to be array, boolean given in /web/htdocs/…/home/wp-content/plugins/symbiostock-pro/tools-ftp.php on line 333
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /web/htdocs/…/home/wp-content/plugins/symbiostock-pro/tools-ftp.php on line 333

    Warning: array_keys() expects parameter 1 to be array, boolean given in /web/htdocs/ on line 333

    2 new/updated images/videos parsed0 thumbnails re/generatedMemory at End: 45MMemory Peak: 46MLoad at End: -0.02M

    After this, only one picture has added to media index with right watermark. One picture at a time.
    Shortly, it seams no parameter is supplied to foreach() function, so no cycle thru pictures is performed. How can we debug that bug?

    3) (some more than a couple…) How turn cron into an automatic job?
    I read something about cPanel configuration; where is cPanel? In website dashboard maybe?

    Thank you all in advance 🙂

    Welcome to the world of Symbiostock.

    After reading your post, there are a couple of things that I can suggest.

    1. Your web host can help you set up the CRON job.  You may or may not have access to it, since you seem to be using managed WordPress hosting.

    2. Check your version of WooCommerce.  (It will be in the plug-in section on your WordPress dashboard.  As of today, you should be using version 2.5.5  – some WordPress managed hosting services will automatically update everything – make sure your host is not doing that to your WordPress installation.

    3.  After getting this done, go to Symbiostock -> Settings and click non the system tab.  Scroll to the bottom and see if you have green check boxes.  If you don’t, tell us what you’re seeing.  Also check your version of PHP – it should be between 5.3 to 5.6.  If it is not, you will likely need your host to set up the correct version for you.

    4 And while you are on that page, at the very bottom – click on Run Wizard.  If you get at issues, let us know.

    This should get you started. Good luck!  Let us know how you’re doing with these steps.

    Hi Bartolomeo,

    Those errors are just warnings – please ignore them and disable error reporting in your WordPress install. Your images are being parsed perfectly and there is no issue based on what you have provided.

    Just follow George’s help with regards to the cron processor and you’re good to go.


    Thank you, George and Robin.
    WooCommerce version is 2.5.5, PHP is 5.5.36.
    Symbiostock -> Settings / system tab report in RED Exec Commands disabled. Diagnostic says “Warning: shell_exec() has been disabled for security reasons in /web/htdocs/…/home/wp-content/plugins/symbiostock-pro/admin-settings.php on line 1126
    Now I see some more media parsed from Symbiostok; maybe it needs some time to perform the task.
    To solve cron management question, I’ve opened a ticket to my host provider.
    Say you soon.

    Without shell_Exec you won’t be able to write metadata and some reading may be limited, but other than that you should experience no issues.
