Hello Mcr8tive !
The default upload file size for WordPress is 2 MB, which is a problem if you want to upload a large media files. If you get this error, “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini”, follow these steps:

  1. Locate the php.ini file inside the wp-admin directory (if you can’t find this file see notes below)
  2. Find this line in the php.ini file “upload_max_filesize = 2M” and replace it with a higher value (e.g. “upload_max_filesize = 64M”)
  3. You may also want to increase your max post size. Look for this line in your php.ini file “post_max_size” and increase it as well.
  4. Save the changes to the file inside your wp-admin directory.
  5. Try the upload again
  6. If you still have issues, look for this file in your root directory and make the same changes.

Hope this helps !

I have edited the php.ini file and the quickstart.zip folder is still not allowing me to install the theme. Any suggestions?

I increased the upload_max_filesize to 64M and then to 100M without any luck.

Please follow our instruction below for how to install the Quickstart file.
Step 1: Download the Quickstart package
Step 2 : Then, unpack the downloaded ZIP package
Step3: Copy the quick start that you have just extracted. Then paste it into your hosting server  “You can use the FTP: http://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients“.
( it will be WWW if using WAMP, XAMPP, AppServ)
Step4: Create a new database on the local host.
– Open a browser and access to phpMyAdmin to create a new database
Step5: Run installation.
Also, you can watch our video guide here for more details:
