Errors while setting up the plugin.

If you got the error "Seems the method cannot be found on your server. Possible reasons may include: PHP option 'allow_url_fopen' is not enabled, PHP CURL is not enabled. Please ask your hoster for support regarding absence of required methods."

  • Please check if your PHP has the necessary methods (allow_url_fopen and PHP CURL) on.
  • To check this, you can install PHP Settings plugin.
  • After you have checked and the necessary methods are Off, please contact your hosting provider and request activating them.
  • If those methods are On, there may be another reason that prevents SimplyBook.me plugin from displaying on your page, please contact our support and we will try to help you.


If you receive the message that Fatal error occurred when installing the plugin most likely you will need to update your PHP version, the preferable version is 5.3 and higher.
