Quickstart Package Installation

In All WordPress Themes packages created by OrdaSoft you can find Quickstart Package. Quickstart Package allow you to install WordPress Theme with demo data in few clicks. We highly recommend this method of WordPress installation

1. Uploading on server

Through FileZilla or another FTP software, upload all files (zip archive and installer.php) from QuickStart Package folder to your website directory.
In the directory should be one zip archive and one file installer.php

2. Run the WordPress Installation Wizard

Open your web browser and go to the folder that you uploaded your QuickStart Package and enter the installer.php

Enter your details and click button "Run Deployment"

Deploy

MySQL Server Action:
'Create New' will attempt to create a new database if it does not exist. This option will not work on many hosting providers. If the database does not exist then you will need to login to your control panel and create the database. If 'Connect and Remove All Data' is checked this will DELETE all tables in the database you are connecting to as the Duplicator requires a blank database. Please make sure you have backups of all your data before using an portion of the installer, as this option WILL remove all data. Please contact your server administrator for more details.

Host:
The name of the host server that the database resides on. Many times this will be localhost, however each hosting provider will have it's own naming convention please check with your server administrator.

User:
The name of a MySQL database server user. This is special account that has privileges to access a database and can read from or write to that database. This is not the same thing as your WordPress administrator account

Password:
The password of the MySQL database server user.

Name:
The name of the database to which this installation will connect and install the new tables onto.

This sets WPCACHEHOME in your wp-config file to nothing if true, otherwise nothing is changed.

Fix non-breaking space characters:
The process will remove utf8 characters represented as 'xC2' 'xA0' and replace with a uniform space. Use this option if you find strange question marks in you posts

When the database is populated from the SQL script it will use this value as part of its connection. Only change this value if you know what your databases character set should be.

FAQ

What is the difference between Quick Start package and single Theme installation?

Installing Quick Start package you get the same site as at the demo version. Quick Start package contains an entire WordPress installation and already configured WordPress Theme and extensions which we used on the demo site. Installing WordPress Theme via Extension manager doesn't include sample date. You will need by your self to install and configure all extensions.
