This document covers the installation and use of this theme, reveals some answers to common problems and issues. We encourage you to read this document throughtly if you are experiencing any difficulties.

1.2 System Requirements

At the basic level, this theme will require the following conditions:

  • PHP version 5.6 or greater
  • MySQL version 5 or greater
  • WordPress 4.7.x or higher (Please note that it has the best performance on the latest version of WordPress)

Note: Recommended PHP Configuration Limits In several cases, you may deal with problems related to low PHP configuration limits, such as: white screen, demo content fails when importing, empty page content and other similar issues. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own by editing the following lines in php.ini file in your root directory. This is not a file that comes with WordPress so if you are unfamiliar with it you should contact your web host about increasing those limits to a minimum as follows:

  • max_execution_time = 600
  • memory_limit = 128M
  • post_max_size = 32M
  • upload_max_filesize = 32M
