If you are installing your theme from the WordPress theme installer, but get a message that says “Are you sure you want to do this?”, most
likely your web server is configured with PHP settings that are too low to allow the theme ZIP file to upload. Specifically, PHP is configured
to a maximum file upload size limit at 8 megabytes or less. The theme ZIP is about 9.5 megabytes in size. Thus, the web server is rejecting
the upload. WordPress is giving you a rather ambiguous message in response. This is not a theme fault or bug.
There two ways to solve this problem.
- You can either get your web host to increase your PHP limits.
- You can upload your theme via an FTP client. View our video tutorial in the Video section of the forum to learn how to install your theme via FTP.
Recommended PHP configuration limits are as follows:
- max_execution_time 60
- memory_limit 128M
- post_max_size 32M
- upload_max_filesize 32M
