WP theme from Envato getting 408 Request Timeout error

Hi, I'm trying to install a Wordpress theme that I bought from Envato, but every time I try uploading it, I get this error:

 

"Request Timeout

Server timeout waiting for the HTTP request from the client."

 

Can somebody help me out with this?

 

[ UPDATE ]

 

For anyone who's running into the same issue: the workaround is to connect your WordPress to ManageWP and upload/activate your theme through there. Might take a minute, but at least it works.

 Solution 1:

You can install and activate "File Manager" plugin. Then goto "File Manager" option and it will list all of your wordpress files/folders . Upload your theme to wp-content/themes folder and don't forget to extract theme zip file.

Solution 2 : 

If you have shared or linux hosting. Login to your cpanel and goto your file manager, goto website root folder and upload the theme zip file to wp-content/themes folder.
