Cannot upload purchased wordpress theme

themeforest

#1

Help! I’m very new to wordpress but I have just purchased a theme and every time I try to upload it I get an error message:

The link you followed has expired.

Please try again.

Not sure what I am doing wrong. Any help is much appreciated!

This is likely an error you will want to contact your host for. I don’t think this will be theme-related. Alternatively you can try uploading the theme using FTP.

Thanks. Sorry if this is basic but how do I upload it using FTP?


#4

I have checked and the maximum upload file size is 8mb. Is this why it won’t upload? The zipped theme is 20mb

Yes, that would certainly be an issue. Are you able to increase it? There are two PHP configurations which must be large enough to fit the file:

post_max_size = 32MB
upload_max_filesize = 32MB

Yes, I’m sure I can increase it, I’m just not sure how. Looking online now. Very new to this…
