You must be running WordPress 5.0 or higher, PHP 7.0 or greater, and MySQL 5 or greater on your server. We have tested it on Linux, Mac and Windows. Below is a list of items you should ensure your host can comply with:
- Check to ensure that your web host has the minimum requirements to run WordPress;
- Always make sure they are running the latest version of WordPress. You can download the latest release of WordPress from the official WordPress website;
- Always create secure passwords for FTP and Databases.
Many issues you may run into such as white screen, demo content fails when importing, empty page content, theme not being saved and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits.
The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your hosting provider and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum of the following:
- max_execution_time 120
- memory_limit 128M
- post_max_size 64M
- upload_max_filesize 64M
- max_input_time 60
