413 error when uploading theme to WordPress, "Request Entity Too Large..."


#1

Hello, i can’t upload a theme to my wordpress.
I get the message: "Request Entity Too Large…"
The zip theme is 19,6mb.
Can you help me?
Thanks

This is an issue related to WordPress. I would suggest you take a look at the topic below.

I think that’s too large to upload through the WordPress dashboard. Try to upload using the File Manager. You should be able to upload it in /wp-content/themes/ and upload the zip, then right click and hit extract. It should then be available in the dashboard.

the whole message is

"Request Entity Too Large

The requested resource
/wp-admin/update.php
does not allow request data with POST requests, or the amount of data provided in the request exceeds the capacity limit.
Additionally, a 413 Request Entity Too Large error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.’’

So i must do it manually as you said?

Yeah from what I’m seeing it’s a “too large” error, so I would suggest doing it manually :smile:


#6

When i try to extract the zip into the themes i get the message " ftp_put(): Can’t open that file: No such file or directory "
Any ideas?
and it creates a new empty folder with the name of the theme

That’s weird. Can you try the unzipper method using the tutorial below?
