Recommended PHP Settings

In order to avoid any possible import issues because of your server and php setings, we would recommend setting following PHP values in your server’s php.ini:

Memory Size: memory_limit = 256M
Script execution time: max_execution_time = 400
Number of input variables: max_input_vars = 4000

If you don’t have an access to the php configurtation on your server, you can try to set this values in .htaccess file:

php_value max_input_vars 4000
php_value max_execution_time 400
php_value memory_limit 256M

Please be careful, because some of hosting companies don’t allow to change php settings directly using .htaccess. In case you have some problems after modifying your .htaccess file, log in to your FTP account and remove these modifiactions from .htaccess
