Server requirements are of extreme importance in order to provide an undisturbed theme upload and import the demo data. It is very important to choose a good hosting provider if you want your website to be fast, safe and undisturbed. Below are configuration parameters which you should check prior to WordPress theme installation:
- max_execution_time = 300 (900 if you are using GoDaddy)
- max_input_time = 120
- memory_limit = 128M
- post_max_size = 15M
- upload_max_filesize = 15M
There is a simple way to check these parameters:
- The php.ini file on your server contains this information, which is where you check first. If need be, you can edit this file. If you do not know how to do this, ask your hosting server provider to perform the configuration of these files instead of you.
- You can install and activate a plugin called Host PHP Info. After you activate it, you can find the PHP Info in Tools > PHP Info. After that, contact your server hosting provider to configure/modify this if need be.
