Step 2: Check for UpdatesOn the same Plugins page confirm you don’t have any Maintenance mode or Coming Soon plugins as they disable any connection to the API and will disable our application.

Under The Woocomerce tab navigate to settings >> advanced >> webhooks
Edit both of the “Printaura Order Hook” webhooks one at a time.
In the “Webhook data” menu select “Legacy API v3” and click save. Do this for both webhooks. If they are already set to “Legacy API V3” then you will not need to change anything.
Step 5: Check Server SettingsCheck server settings by clicking on the new link to Print Aura API. You may not need to deal with this now but good to know where to check if you have issues once you start with the app.
- File Size Limit – Note the max size of your file upload limits. This number will limit how big your store mockup images can be that you upload. If you need to update your file size limits visit this file size limit tutorial.
- File Permissions – You should see a “looks good This folder is writable”. If not, you will need to update your server settings
Step 6: Enable Pretty PermalinksEnable Pretty Permalinks in Settings > Permalinks. Change the Common settings to Post Name. Under Product Permalink Base you can change it to any of the options besides Default.
Step 7: Link Woocommerce Shop to Print Aura
