Configuring your hosting server
Last updated - December 13, 2019
To use Kepler, you must be running WordPress 4 or higher, PHP 5.6 or higher version (WordPress officially suggests to use PHP 7) and mysql 5 or higher. Kepler has been tested with Mac, Windows and Linux. Below is a checklist of items your host needs to comply with to ensure proper operation:
- Ensure your web host has the minimum requirements to run WordPress – Kepler recommends Google Cloud Launcher – One Click WordPress Instance.
- Make sure the latest version of WordPress is up and running.
- If necessary, you can download the latest release of WordPress from the official WordPress website.
PHP Configuration limits
You can check your PHP configuration limits by installing the WordPress phpinfo() plugin and checking Settings.
Technical issues at setup 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 minimums:
- memory_limit 96M
- max_input_vars 3000
- max_execution_time 120
- post_max_size 32M
- upload_max_filesize 32M
- allow_url_fopen ON
- asp_tags OFF
