Are You Sure You Want To Do This? when trying to install the theme

Description and Steps

Step 1

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?” , this means that 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 14.5 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 are two ways to solve this problem.

  • You can either get your web host to increase your upload_max_filesize to 32M.
  • You can upload the extracted theme package via an FTP client to wp-content/themes directory.

You can verify your PHP configuration limits by installing a simple plugin called WordPress phpinfo().

Recommended PHP configuration limits are as follows:

  • max_execution_time 120
  • memory_limit 256M
  • post_max_size 32M
  • upload_max_filesize 32M

They are required for dummy data installation.
