Error migration to cloudways


Got error 'PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function wp_start_scraping_edited_file_errors()

Got this error when migrating from godaddy to cloudways.

Is this because i’m going from php 5 to php7 ?

Anyone familiar with how to resolve this issue?


Hi @jiunjye704,

Might be possible because not all plugins are compatible with PHP 7 yet. But it is not common.

Can you try migrating again to the same URL, it will move any files that might not have moved correctly. and contact our support team if the problem still exists?



Hi @jiunjye707,

Don’t think this is a PHP 7 issue. The function wp_start_scraping_edit_file_errors() was introduced in WordPress 4.9.0.
Could you have a mixed up WP install or a plugin that requires WP 4.9 or later?

Hope this helps.
