Common Error during Installation

The error: "Are you sure you want to do this?"

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 25 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:

1. You can either get your web host to increase your PHP limits. Some hosting allows you change PHP values from htacess or PHP.ini Please check your help documents from provider.

Recommended PHP configuration limits are as follows:

max_execution_time = 18000
memory_limit = 128M
post_max_size = 32M
upload_max_filesize = 32M

2. You can upload your theme via an FTP client.
