Technical Requirements

Installing Joomla 3+ and QuickStart requires a server (Linux / Apache), but it can be installer also locally on your computer with WAMP/JAMP/XAMPP/MAMP software. These settings are recommended for PHP to ensure full compatibility*.

PHP settings

  • PHP 7.1 or PHP 7.2 or PHP 7.3 (64 bit version, recommended)
  • MySQLi 5.5+ or MariaDB
  • upload_max_filesize = 4M (or more)
  • memory_limit = 128MB (but 256MB or more is recommened)
  • max_execution_time = 180 (but 300 or more is recommened)
  • cURL library - your server must work with curl or url_fopen.
  • OpenSSL Libraries - must be enabled.
  • PHP file_get_contents() function - must be available/unlocked.

Note: Support for PHP 5.6 ended (!). Change the PHP version from cPanel or change the hosting company.

* Those values can be changed in php.ini or .htaccess file. Please contact your web hosting service provider to be sure that your server complies with the requirements or to ask them where/how to change PHP settings. There are some less demanding situations where Template and SPPB will perform quite well in weaker PHP settings.

In addition, some features of the modules and components** used in a template may require:

  • GD library support
  • cURL library support
  • Support for mb_* functions in PHP to use multibyte strings

**More information you can find inside SP Page Builder documentation.

Remember to restart Apache (localhost only) after configuration changes.
