In this section, we present Recommended PHP configuration limits and How to verify your current PHP limits. But before that, make sure that you’re running the latest version of WordPress, PHP version 7.0 or higher and MySQL version 5.7 or higher.
Recommended PHP configuration limits
One of the issues you may run into is importing demo data fails. The first solution is to increase PHP limits. You can do this by yourself or contact your server provider to ask for the help to increase following PHP limits:
- max_execution_time = 300
- max_input_time = 300
- memory_limit = 256M
- post_max_size = 32M
- upload_max_filesize = 32M
How to verify your current PHP limits
Verify your PHP limits in Dashboard >> WooCommerce >> System Status. Or contact the server provider to confirm your current PHP limits are and have them set it up again if neeed.

How can I translate

Our booking plugin can be easily translated by a translation plugin, such as Loco Translate plugin. Most of you want to change
/rooms URL so I will guide how to do.
– Install Loco Translate plugin.
– Visit Dashboard >> Loco Translate >> Plugins >> WP Hotel Booking >> find
rooms [URL Slug] and change to “apartments” (in case, I’ll change /rooms URL to /apartments URL)
Note: * Site language and language in Loco has to be same.
* The permalink is always “Post Name” http://prntscr.com/idii6b
How to get license key of included premium plugins (Visual Composer, Revolution Slider)?
You can use included premium plugins such as Visual Composer, Revolution Slider for free when you purchase and download our themes from ThemeForest. So you don’t have to buy your own license to use these plugins.
However, as a note from that plugin’s author, you (theme buyer) can not active directly get support from them. But please don’t worry if you see warning messages about the plugin license activation or update required. You always get the latest version of Visual Composer, Revolution Slider when we update the theme. We will test these plugins before send it to you to make sure there are no conflicts with our theme.
Will customization be lost if I update theme?
No, your customization in Customize panel will not be lost if you update theme. Only the coding modification in original theme’s files will be lost and that’s why you should deploy in child theme.
Customize can not be saved
When you make some settings in Customize panel but the changes can not be saved. There are some common following reasons:
- It’s due to your server error “500 Internal Server”. Read here to know about the error and how to fix it.
- User of server (e.g Apache, Nginx) can’t write file. Let chmod file style.css and config.less (all in the theme directory) is 777.
- Your PHP version is outdated. PHP version 7.0 or higher is recommended.
