Template introduction

In Artbees, we design and develop exclusive prebuilt demos (templates) for Jupiter theme. All of the available templates are installable in the latest version of Jupiter theme.

There are some points to consider before using templates:

  • Templates needs to be installed in a fresh installation of WordPress.
  • Installing or uninstalling a template will erase all your data and settings of your website.
  • All images and videos are copyrighted and used only for demo purposes.

Images and videos

As mentioned above all images and videos are copyrighted and they are included in our templates for demo purposes. If you need to use any of them in your website, you need to acquire appropriate license for each asset.


Installing a template

Template installation is an automatic process and it needs to be done in Jupiter control panel. In this example, we install Poseidon template.

Common issues

List of common issues which you may face during template installation. The list will be updated regularly.

FS_METHOD (Ownership of wp-directory)

The issue happen when WordPress does not have correct permission to modify the file systems correctly. To solve this issue on 99% of web hosts, add following codes in wp-config.php file and modify each 6 FTP details based on your own details.

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');
define('FTP_BASE', '/usr/home/username/public_html/my-site.example.com/wordpress/');
define('FTP_CONTENT_DIR', '/usr/home/username/public_html/my-site.example.com/wordpress/wp-content/');
define('FTP_PLUGIN_DIR ', '/usr/home/username/public_html/my-site.example.com/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/');
define('FTP_USER', 'my-ftp-username');
define('FTP_PASS', 'my-ftp-password');
define('FTP_HOST', 'ftp.my-site.example.com');

Error 504 (Gateway Time-out)

The issue happens mostly when PHP maximum execution time is less than Jupiter requirements. Read Jupiter server requirements article and increase your server maximum execution time to recommended value.
