Likely Causes For Demo Import Failing

  • Your PHP memory, file upload size, and execution limits are set too low
  • Your web host uses process watching software that prevents bulk processing on their web servers.

Recommended PHP Configuration Limits

The Recommended PHP configuration limits  for WordPress and Elementor based sites are as follows:

  • max_execution_time: 600 seconds
  • memory_limit: 256MB
  • post_max_size: 48MB
  • upload_max_filesize: 32MB
  • max_input_time: 400 seconds
  • max_input_vars: 1000

The theme and plugins require PHP version 8 or higher. Now is the time to think about upgrading to PHP 8.0 if you haven’t already. You are guaranteed performance benefits.
