Template Issues

Updated on May 9, 2019

In this article we cover some of the common issues which you may face during or after template installation.


FS_METHOD (Ownership of wp-directory)

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

define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');
define( 'FS_CHMOD_DIR', ( 0755 & ~ umask() ) );
define( 'FS_CHMOD_FILE', ( 0755 & ~ umask() ) );
define('FTP_BASE', __DIR__);
define('FTP_CONTENT_DIR', __DIR__ .'/wp-content/');
define('FTP_PLUGIN_DIR', __DIR__ .'/wp-content/plugins/');
define('FTP_HOST', 'hostname');
define('FTP_USER', 'username');
define('FTP_PASS', 'password');


Error 504 (Gateway Time-out)

This issue occurs mostly when the PHP maximum execution time is less than the Jupiter requirements. Read the Jupiter server requirements article and increase your server’s maximum execution time to the recommended value.
