However, there are times that you will encounter issues while installing the theme in WordPress. Be mindful of the said issues below for you to know what to do if you encounter these problems.

Possible issues during WordPress theme installation

There are two common issues that may occur during the installation of WordPress themes through your WordPress dashboard. The first issue is that you’ve already extracted the zip file before uploading your theme. Please note that WordPress requires a zip file in order to install the theme. That means please don’t extract the zip file and in case you’re running a program or a browser (e.g. Safari) that automatically extracts zip files after download, you need to turn that off.

The other common issue is that you possibly get an error that says that the uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini. This error is the result of a limitation on your server which you can easily fix within a few minutes. For more information please have a look at this tutorial: How to Increase the Memory & Upload Limit in WordPress.
