Magento 2:

I am trying to install an extension (same error for system upgrade also) and it fails at readiness check with below error:

PHP Settings Check

Your current setting of xdebug.max_nesting_level=100. Magento 2 requires it to be set to 200 or more. Edit your config, restart web server, and try again.

Here is the output snippet from phpinfo(); I have already increased the value to 200, then 400 and then 10000.

xdebug.max_nesting_level    10000   10000

Any idea on how to resolve this?

  • Try set in apache2/php.ini, cli/php.ini and fpm/php.ini xdebug.max_nesting_level = 200
