Installing Theme: Luminescence Lite 1.3.0 Downloading install package from https://downloads.wordpress.org/theme/luminescence-lite.1.3.0.zip

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\class-wp-http-curl.php on line 324

This is the error I am getting when downloading any WordPress themes. Please tell me how to resolve this problem.



This might be a problem with slow connection which causes PHP to time out, you can try again later.

The alternative is to download the theme zip file to your computer and upload it from there into the site.

  • How do you upload it from there into the site – Fatima Feb 4 '16 at 8:05
  • Themes admin >> add new >> upload theme (botton next to the title) – Mark Kaplun Feb 4 '16 at 8:49
  • The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini. – Fatima Feb 4 '16 at 13:10
  • this is the msg which i am receiving while uploading it – Fatima Feb 4 '16 at 13:11
  • Then you will have to just extract the ZIP and copy the files top the themes directory – Mark Kaplun Feb 4 '16 at 13:18

inside your php.ini file, you need to find two lines:

  • max_execution_time = 30
  • max_input_time = 60

Try increasing these values. First try with the max_execution_time.

Hope it helps!

  • I tried but it says access is denied – Fatima Feb 4 '16 at 12:48
