Wordpress theme upload error: "The link you followed has expired. Please try again."

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 Smiley Happy

 

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.

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.

Re: Wordpress theme upload error: "The link you followed has expired. Please try again."

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.

@swoodling,

@webloose,

@anshal,

 

Are you getting that error for all themes?, or certain ones...

What about plugins?, Are you able to install them successfully...

Looking forward to hear from you...

How did you alter your php version?

Re: Wordpress theme upload error: "The link you followed has expired. Please try again."

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?

Hi,

 

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.

Hello,

 

This is my first theme install and the problem still persists. 

 

I tried installing with the PHP option and everything works just fine.

Make these changes in PHP Options to correct:

max_execution_time   180

memory_limit   512M or your highest available

post_max_size  32M

upload_max_filesize   64M

@tjoyce28,

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!
