WooCommerce Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error

Having this issue after updating the woocommerce plugin today. Specifically I am getting this when I am going to activate the plugin. This is the exact error screenshot:

What I have tried:

  • Changing the WP_Memory_Limit value
  • Deleting and reinstalling WooCommerce
  • Changing the theme and trying to activate it again
  • I have turned off all other plugins to reduce likelihood of conflict
  • I have reuploaded the plugin files in case the upload/install didn’t complete correctly.

Permissions are okay for files and folders. It’s in Ubuntu VPS in DO.

But no luck! Can anyone help me in fixing this ASAP? Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem as well. Can you please point out where can we get the update to fix this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Ryan

WooCommerce just released an update to fix this problem. It was related to the GZip. It is working now.

I am having the same problem. I already made all the changes necessary to the PHP ini file but no luck. If anyone finds a fix, please post it here.
