I got the following error when I use the --interactive command option of multiqc.

Could anyone tell me how to solve the problem?

Either memory or you are running out of disk space (or hitting your quota for storage). If you don't use --interactive you should still get all plots and such. Did you try that?

Thank you very much! Yes, it is a memory problem but I couldn't yet solve it! Of course, it worked without --interactive option but as I have many samples having an interactive plot will be better.
