Get started with SEOPress


We recommend servers running version 7.4 or greater of PHP (8.2 max) and MySQL version 5.6 OR MariaDB version 10.0 or greater.

We also recommend either Apache or Nginx.

PHP configuration

DOM, mbstring and intl are three required PHP modules for SEOPress.
They are usually installed by default on webhost.
If one of these module is missing, an alert appears from the notifications center.
Contact your webhost if it the case.

Check also your PHP configuration from your WordPress Admin, Tools, Site Health, Info tab, Server section. These values should match your configuration:

  • Max input time: >= 60
  • Upload max filesize: >= 50M
  • PHP post max size: >= 50M

WordPress configuration

WordPress 5.0 is the minium required version, we strongly recommend the latest one available.

Make sure you have enabled custom permalinks (URL rewriting) from Settings, Permalinks. SEOPress will show you an alert from the notifications center.
