No matter what theme I try to install (I've tried 3 different themes at this point) I get a message that says "The link you followed has expired. Please try again." They are purchased themes and I have successfully installed them on other GoDaddy hosted wordpress sites.
I've done google searches and support forum searches (on this forum and the theme forums) and can't find a solution. I'm hoping someone can help
I am running WordPress version 4.9.5.
php version 7.1
This is the error page address: http://soulshine.yoga/wp-admin/update.php?action=upload-theme.
I use Linux cPanel.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am getting the same error from past two days. Have tried looking online but couldn't find anything useful.
Would be great if somebody could help.
I just switched my php version to 7.0 and the theme install worked once I did that. Maybe that will work for you. Perhaps my issue was a compatibility issue between php 7.1 and my theme.
I will leave this thread up for others to offer in put too.
I am having the same problems with plugins over a certain size. So I am thinking there is some timeout setting that is relevant now that didn't used to be?
I was able to get around this by FTP'ing into the site and uploading the plugin but it was super annoying and took a lot longer because I decompressed it before I uploaded it.
Anyone find a fix?
I had to do the same FTP process to get it to upload. (and yes I agree it is tedious) I am still having the same error uploading the theme the traditional way.
This is my first theme install and the problem still persists.
I tried installing with the PHP option and everything works just fine.
I'm VERY new to wordpress and no nothing about making websites. I had a friend make this site for me and i figured out how to play with the theme.
I got this error and now looking into the PHP Options file. Do i just copy and paste that in the code? Sorry for silly question!
I was having the same issue, used your php settings fix, and it worked like a charm. Thank you SO much.
