When installing the big plugins I am getting this error - WooCommerce. This problem does not happens with small plugins. It takes long time to install the plugin.

Installation failed: <!DOCTYPE html> 504 - Gateway Timeout * { box-sizing: border-box; -moz-box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: transparent; } body { margin: 0; padding: 0; height: 100%; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%; } .fit-wide { position: relative; overflow: hidden; max-width: 1240px; margin: 0 auto; padding-top: 60px; padding-bottom: 60px; padding-left: 20px; padding-right: 20px; } .background-wrap { position: relative; } .background-wrap.cloud-blue { background-color: #b0e0e9; } .background-wrap.white { background-color: #fff; } .title { position: relative; text-align: center; margin: 20px auto 10px; } .title--regular { font-family: 'Roboto', Arial, sans-serif; } .title--size-large { font-size: 36px; line-height: 46px; } .title--size-semimedium { font-size: 20px; line-height: 28px; } .title--weight-normal { font-weight: 400; } .title--weight-bold { font-weight: 700; } .title--subtitle { padding-bottom: 40px; font-family: 'Open Sans', Arial ,sans-serif; text-align: center; } .error h1, .error p { color: #226d7a; } .error--bg__cover { position: absolute; width: 100%; } .error--shape__clouds svg { display: block; } .abstract-half-dot--circle { z-index: 0; position: absolute; left: 15em; right: 0; width: 300px; height: 300px; margin: 0 auto; } .icon-graphic { z-index: 1; position: relative; width: 300px; height: 300px; margin: 0 auto; } @media screen and (max-width: 767px) { .error--bg__cover { display: none; } .abstract-half-dot--circle { left: 0; } } bg_error_lines circle_dots .st0{fill:#fff;} .st1{fill:#226D7A;} .st2{fill:#22B8D1;} 504 - Gateway Timeout This is a temporary error. Please try again later. clouds_shape

an another error that i faced is :

cURL error 18: transfer closed with 1075636 bytes remaining to read

This is with default clean wordpress and zero plugins

Is this an hosting error with CURL? Does wordpress downloads plugin with curl request?

    My guess is this is a temporary issue with your webhost and its connectivity to download ZIPs from WordPress.org. Or, and this is probably more likely, they've set a restrictive timeout in your configuration that's too short. Contact your host and tell them to increase your maximum request termination timeout. It's too short and it's killing your requests. – Paul G. Apr 21 at 11:44
  • @PaulG.thank you, I am contacting hosting – Latheesh V M Villa Apr 21 at 11:57
