1.4 Installation issues

Learn how to handle PHP issues during the installation process.

pikocon of the time installation problems are due to limited resources, for example on shared hosting servers. Here's an overview of the PHP configuration settings you should check and increase, if needed.

Setting Description
post_max_size Data in a single form submission using the POST method.
upload_max_filesize Size of an individual file uploaded.
max_execution_time Time in seconds a script is allowed to run before it is terminated by the parser.

You may need to allocate resources for PHP by php.ini file directly. If this is not possible, you can try setting the PHP settings through a .htaccess file on your webserver. Though this also depends on your hosting server, if it allows the usage of .htaccess overrides.

To change the PHP configuration through the php.ini file, use the following syntax.

# example of recommended settings
post_max_size = 8M
upload_max_filesize = 8M
max_execution_time = 60
                                    

To change the PHP configuration through a .htaccess file, use the following syntax.

# example of recommended settings
php_value post_max_size 8M
php_value upload_max_filesize 8M
php_value max_execution_time 60

Translation Basics

If you are new to translating WordPress, this is the right point to start. In general, internationalization and localization (abbreviated as i18n and l10n respectively) are terms used to describe the effort to make WordPress available in languages other than English, for people from different locales. The actual localization is done using the GNU get text framework, which is used by WordPress itself including the themes and plugins.

In order to make WordPress recognize the language to which you want to translate the core WordPress, the theme or the plugins, you have to define the language within the wp-config.php file or change a setting within the dashboard. The process is dependent on the WordPress version and is described below:

  1. Login to your FTP account and edit the wp-config.php file. In the wp-config.php file, look for WPLANG constant which looks like the following code:
  2. More Information click here codex instruction
       <?php
     /*
    *WordPress Localized Language, defaults to English.
    * Change this to localize WordPress.
    * language must be installed to wp-content/languages. For example, install
    * language support.
    */

    define( 'WPLANG', '' );

     ?/>
                    

For WordPress 4.0 or 4.0+ Users

After the wp-config.php file is edited, login to WP-admin dashboard and navigate to Settings >>> General Setting >>> page. Make sure Site Language option is set correctly.

To translate the theme please follows the steps below:

  1. Copy Pikocon.pot file from pikocon/languages folder to your desktop for editing.

  2. Download http://www.poedit.net/ and open the file with it.

  3. Choose the text to edit and enter your translation in the bottom box.

  4. Save your .po file according to language code followed by country code If your translation is written in German, your file name will look like de_DE.po

  5. Once you save, Poedit by default automatically creates a .pikocon file along side your .po file.

  6. Upload the .po and .pikocon files you just created to your /languages folder so they are in the same directory as the pikocon.po

  7. Open wp-content; folder and and create /languages folder, if it is not already there.

  8. Upload the WordPress .pikocon file corresponding to the desired language ( de_DE.po for example) into your /languages folder

  9. In Settings/General scroll to the last setting and choose the language.

  10. Done

How To Speed Up Your Site With WP Super Cache

plugin link WP SUPER CACHE

WP Super Cache is a plugin for WordPress that generates static HTML pages from your dynamic WordPress blog. Once static pages are generated, those pages are displayed to visitors, using less server resources than dynamic webpages.

For busy websites running WordPress, we recommend to enable a caching plugin, such as WP Super Cache. This will allow your website to handle simultaneous visitors and also typically loads much faster than without the caching plugin.

Configuration and Settings

Please complete all four steps to use the suggested settings.

tep 1. Set General Settings

On Advanced tab, you should either select Use _rewrite to serve cache files or the 304 Not browser caching as the recent updates to the WP Super Cache Plugin have made their use un-accessible at this time.

  1. Check box next to Cache hits to this website
  2. Select button next to Use rewrite to serve cache files
  3. Check box next to Compress Pages
  4. Check box next to 304 Not browser caching
  5. Check box next to Don't cache pages for known users
  6. Cache rebuild; Extra homepage checks; should already be checked, leave them that way.
  7. Select Update Status button.

pikocon

Step 2. Set Garbage Collection

Scroll down to Expiry Time Garbage Collection and enter 3600 in the box, then select Change Expiration

pikocon

Step 3. Set Rejected User Agents

It is recommended that you do not the default user agents from the list, to prevent bots from caching content and pages not normally seen by your visitors.

Explanation of the Options Selected

Cache hits to this website

Enables caching

Use rewrite to serve cache files

Fastest caching method, uses rewrite rules in client's .htaccess file

Compress Pages

Super Cache files are compressed and stored that way so the heavy compression is done only once. These files are often much smaller. They are sent to a visitor’s browser much faster than uncompressed html. As a result, the server spends less time talking over the network. It saves CPU time and bandwidth, and can also serve the next request with much high speed.

304 Not browser caching

Indicates to the client’s browser whether a requested file has been or not (see: http://www.addedbytes.com/for-beginners/http-status-codes/ or elsewhere for info on that apache code)

Don't cache pages for known users

This prevents logged-in users from being served cached pages and is the default for al every caching plugin out there.

Expiry Time Garbage Collection

The default setting will allow cache files to age 1 hour (3600 seconds) prior to being which is ideal. This setting can be increased for sites that do not have many posts (1,000 or less ) if you do not update your content often. If you have a very large of posts ( 25,000+ ), a lower setting around 1800 may be pikocon viable to prevent stat/CPU issues due to the pikocon of files being created.

Rejected User Agents

It is recommended that you do not the default user agents from the list, to prevent bots from caching content and pages not normally seen by your visitors. (For example, if you have a calendar, a real visitor may only browse close to now, but a bot will index every forever as if it is a different page. Caching these pages real visitors are unlikely to visit wastes resources.)
