To install and use Molecule on your site, you must be running WordPress 4.5 or higher, PHP 5.6.30 or higher, and MySQL 5 or higher. You need to have the following values setup for your site's PHP configuration. Contact your host to find out if they support these requirements.
How To Verify Current PHP Configuration
You need to verify the PHP version that is currently installed on your site. You have got couple of options on how to find the exact version. Remember, Molecule requires atleast PHP 5.6.30 to work correctly. To find the correct version of PHP you can -

Install pluginYou can also check the PHP configuration by installing this simple plugin called WP-ServerInfo.
Use FTP and upload a file.If you have FTP access to your site, upload this below file to your site root directory. This should be the same folder in which the wp-config.php exists. Once uploaded access this file using your site url as [your-site-url]/phpinfo.php. You need to extract the file from inside the zip download. Download the file
Use right-click and then choose "Save Link as" to save the file.
Note: Molecule Requirements
The above mentioned PHP configuration values are recommended for smooth working of Molecule. The plugin will mostly work with even lower config, but for large sites, or while trying to import some demos, you might face some problems if the recommended configuration is not met.
We've prepared a very intuitive file structure. Please click on the folders below to see what's inside.
Below is a full list of everything that is included when you download the main files.
For your convenience, the whole Molecule plugin directory structure has been added here for reference. You can see which files are in which folder and update/modify them accordingly.
Specifically, we support the latest versions of the following browsers and platforms. On Windows, we support Internet Explorer 11+. More specific support information is provided below.
Extended Plugin Support
Since the new CodeCanyon terms have come out on September 2015, getting item support is a paid feature. Your purchase of Molecule comes with 6 months of free support. You need to pay $7.88 approximately to extend support to 12 months.
You can read more about the new support terms below.
No need to pay extra for 6 months
With Molecule plugin you are guaranteed support for 6 months upfront without any extra fees than the price for the plugin license. Remember, item support do not include customizations and support for 3rd party plugins.
The Envato system will suggest that your support has expired and you need to renew support. However, it is not required. Our ticketing system is not bound to Envato's system and works differently. However, do understand that to get support beyond 6 months you need to renew your support with Envato. Until then you can use our system to submit tickets for your issues and bug reports and we will solve them for you.
