PHP Configuration Limits

Issues you may encounter, such as demo content fails when importing and similar issues, are generally related to excessively low PHP configuration limit settings. You can either increase these limits on your own or contact your web host and ask to have the limits increased to the following:

  • memory_limit 256M
  • max_input_vars 3000
  • max_execution_time 300
  • post_max_size 64M
  • upload_max_filesize 64M

PHP cURL fsock

In order for the demo content installer to be able to download the demo content, you will need to have either PHP cURL or fsock enabled in your PHP settings.

fsock
To enable fsock you need to edit your `php.ini` and make sure you have the following config:
allow_url_fopen = On

Verify your PHP limits

You can check them by installing the WordPress phpinfo() plugin and checking Settings. The first column refers to your installation value, and the second column refers to the limits of your host. The latter values are often lower if you have selected a cheaper hosting package.

You can always contact your host to ask what the current settings are, and have them adjusted if necessary. Some hosts will try to keep PHP limits low to conserve resources. Since are paying for those resources, you should rightfully expect to be getting your money’s worth.

Have any recommendation to improve the documentation?
