You can do any one of the following:

1. Upload manually with FTP or cPanel

If your web host uses cPanel or you have experience with FTP, you can upload the theme manually. The official WordPress website has instructions for both of these methods:

2. Contact your web host

Your web host will need to determine what part of the install process is being limited and increase the limit so that you can install the theme through the WordPress dashboard. Contact their support and let them know you are having problems uploading the theme. Be sure to tell them the size of the file you are trying to upload.

If you have access to server settings or are working on a local server, you can try changing some PHP options yourself in the php.ini file:

  • Set both post_max_size and upload_max_filesize to be larger than the theme file.
  • Ensure memory_limit is generous (256M is recommended).


First you need to choose your perfect domain name Then, select a good web host. Bluehost offers affordable hosting options with 1- click WordPress installation that many people love. We personally prefer and use Managed WordPress hosting from WP Engine where WordPress is already installed and configured for you (plus they manage your server side settings for you).
