Demo Data Import Requirements

Hongo comes with a wide range of demos. When you first install Hongo, it won’t contain the extra theme content that you have seen in the live demo of Hongo. With Demo data import, you can easily import all demos with the single click. As demos are the best method for your site. With this function, you can import an entire demo section or only certain sections that you are interested. Before starting with demo data import, please see below requirements that you need at the time of importing.

Demo Import Requirements

We suggested below PHP configurations to avoid errors such as blank screen, white screen, our demo import fails, empty page content, and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits.

  • Upload max filesize (upload_max_filesize) 40M
