Uploaded the Flex Template (Joomla) and I got the 413 error

Request Entity Too Large

The requested resource does not allow request data with GET requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.

Additionally, a 413 Request Entity Too Large error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Have you tried to contact the theme author for support?

Thank you. I was trying to upload the whole template through an existing Joomla architecture. I solved it by completely revamping the site - which means the ff steps (as my approach):

  • getting in my cpanel and then access file manger
  • going to public html files and creating an ‘old’ folder and transferring old files into the ‘old’ folder
  • create a new database for Flex template and new superuser user and PW
  • upload the whole Flex template .zip file into public html and extract that folder there
  • open the quickstart with virtue mart folder and extract the zip file on there
  • transfer all the extracted files into public html
  • then open the joomla control panel - site.com/administrator - with your new superuser and PW

These all sum up what I did to circumvent the 413 error.

Thank you!
