Server Requirements are very critical in order to seamlessly upload the theme and import the demo data. Below are the list of PHP configuration parameters of your server that should be verified before installing the theme.
- PHP Version 5.4 or above
max_execution_time = 180 (900 if you are using GoDaddy)
max_input_time = 120
memory_limit = 128M
post_max_size = 35M
upload_max_filesize = 35M
Note: The Theme Zip’s file size is around 26MB and a majority of it comes from the included plugin zip files and sample demo content. The actual files of the theme alone are a fraction of this. This size is common to almost all the premium themes.
How can this be checked ?
- You can check this in the php.ini file on your server and modify them as necessary. If you are not familiar with modifying this, you can reach out to your server hosting provider who should be able to configure this for you.
- You can install and activate a plugin called Host PHP Info. On activating the plugin, the PHP Info can be found by navigating to Tools > PHP Info. You can then reach out to your server hosting provider who should be able to configure/modify this if required.
