    We try to upload the theme Coherence and we get a message: The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

    We have WP 3.4.2

    What can we do?



    If you’ve access to the php.ini file search for following code:


    and increase the value after the =

    - eg on xampp server the file can be found in the xampp/php/ folder and the standard setting is:

    upload_max_filesize = 2M

    I’d increase it to a reasonable value like 50M. Afterwards restart the server and you can upload the file.

    If you can’t access the php.ini file contact your hoster (recommended otherwise some media files like html5 videos will trigger this error too) or use a ftp client software like filezilla to install the theme.


    Where can I find the php.ini file?

    I’ve searched an hour but couldn’t find anything.



    It depends on the server software. If you’re using xampp it’s in the C://xampp/php/ folder however that’s just an example and there’s no general answer to this question…




    It worked, I asked to my hostingcompany to make it bigger.

    But now I get another errormessage: The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    What can I do?



    Please unzip the package you got from ONE time. You should get a folder which contains PSDs, Docs and another zip file (which is called This zip file is the right file. Go to your wordpress admin panel and navigate to Appearance > Themes. Then select the file, upload & install it. You can also unpack this zip file and upload the resulting folder via ftp to wp-content/themes.
