WordPress theme that I bought from Envato is 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?




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.
