IonMag Requirements

In this section, we will present the recommended configurations under which the theme would work perfectly. Those are not absolute values; the theme’s performance depends on many factors like the host performance, server configuration, and the number of visitors.

Server requirements

  • WordPress 4.0 or newer
  • Apache or Nginx
  • php.ini memory limit: 40MB (recommended: 64M)
  • PHP version 5.2.4 or newer (recommended: PHP 5.4 or greater)
  • MySQL version 5.0 or newer (recommended: MySQL 5.5 or greater)
  • The mod_rewrite Apache module (optional)

Hosting requirements

If WordPress performs fine on your host, the theme should too. Next, we will present you a list of popular hosts and the behavior you can expect from them, but please note that the numbers quoted here do not represent a guarantee. The hosting performance depends on your WordPress, plugins and general OS configuration.

Godaddy or other budget shared hosting:

  • Should handle 1- 2000 unique users per day
  • Will not handle traffic spikes well
  • If possible, use only a few plugins

Budget VPS

  • Should handle 2000 – 4000 unique users per day
  • Will not handle traffic spikes well
  • Get as much RAM as possible

High-performance VPS

  • Should handle 4000 – 6000 unique users per day
  • Should be with more than 4GB of RAM
  • If properly configured, with enough RAM and a swap partition, the server should handle traffic spikes

Dedicated server

  • Should handle 6000+ unique users per day
  • It should be at least 8 GB of RAM
  • It should handle traffic spikes well
