Problems installing a theme on wordpress


I am trying to install the AVADA theme on to my wordpress. The file uploads but at the end I get a message saying something like “are you sure you want to do this”? and “try again”. On my local host this worked fine, but now that I am trying to install the theme on my live digital ocean host it doesn’t work. The AVADA support team claim that this happens when the file is too big for the server and recommend installing it through FTP. HAs anyone else encountered this?


Thanks! Problem solved…

You’ll need to edit your php.ini located here: /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini You need to increase your upload_max_filesize Then you will also need to increase your post_max_size as well.

Increase those to a size that is larger than what ever you are trying to upload.

once you have updated both of those, Be sure to restart apache.

service apache2 restart

For PHP 7 the folder is a bit different but worked GREAT. Thanks.


Customise your php.ini
