Sometimes you may get some errors while installing our theme, importing content, or activating plugins. Most popular are white screen or PHP errors, Theme Settings or menu items are not saved, etc. They may be caused by low PHP configuration limits. In this case, you need to increase some values. You can do this on your own or contact your hosting providers and ask them to increase parameters to the following requirements:
- memory_limit 128M
- post_max_size 64M
- upload_max_filesize 64M
- max_execution_time 180
- max_input_vars 10000
How to verify your PHP configuration
Basic PHP values required for our theme you can see under the System Status tab in our Space Dashboard. If you see that something is not high enough then you will need to contact your hosting provider and ask them to increase if possible. Recommended hostings for WordPress websites are Bluehost and WP Engine.
