In this tutorial, I’ll guide you through easy-to-follow steps to troubleshoot and fix this error.

So, first things first, let’s answer what is the “get_scheme()” function and why is it causing a PHP Fatal error.

For starters, the error message indicates that the “get_scheme()” function is being called on a null value in the “init.php” file of the Zikzag-core plugin. This error can disrupt the functionality of your website, as you’ve discovered, but we’ll work together to resolve it.

Solutions to consider to fix the error.

Clear Caches:

Start by clearing all caches, including server cache, browser cache, CDN cache, or any other caching mechanism you might use. Caching-related issues can sometimes cause conflicts and lead to such errors.

Reinstall Plugins:

Try uninstalling the Zikzag-core, Elementor, and Elementor Pro plugins. Then, reinstall them one by one. This can help resolve any potential conflicts or corrupted files that may be causing the error.

Change WordPress Theme:

Temporarily deactivate your current WordPress theme and switch to a basic theme like “Hello Elementor” or any other theme that uses Elementor. Sometimes, conflicts between themes and plugins can trigger such errors. Testing with a different theme will help identify if the theme is the culprit.

Contact Web Hosting Support:

If none of the above solutions work, it’s time to contact your web hosting provider. The get_scheme() error could result from server resource issues or misconfiguration. Open a support ticket with your hosting provider and explain the error you’re facing. They will be able to investigate further and provide necessary assistance.

And if they can’t solve it, you might want to consider using A2 Hosting.  I moved the customer websites that encountered this error to their web hosting service, and they helped me solve this issue quickly.  Try’em out!
