You might get this runtime error when exporting the site with Prime Mover using PHP 8.0+
Some third party code (not yet fully identifiable) alter the way cookies are being handled – instead of a string – the cookies become an array type. The tricky thing is that this is not consistently reproducible – even though the test site uses the same plugins/themes and PHP version (8.0). The issue is no longer reproducible.
This will cause fatal error only when you are using PHP 8.0+
The only working solution for this issue is to downgrade PHP of the source site to PHP 7.4. Once downgraded – confirm that you are really using PHP 7.4.
Once confirmed that the PHP version is now downgraded to PHP 7.4 – repeat the export process. There should be no more runtime errors.
Once the export is completed – you can switch back again to PHP 8.0+.
