Unable to install plugins wordpress exceeds the upload_max_filesize

hi ,

 I have an error while installing the Wordpress plugin. Can anyone help about this error which  says that

"The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini "

Check to make sure you are uploading the correct zip file.  Some premium plugins (and themes) are compressed within a main .zip that also includes other files and documentation.


If that's the case, when you unzip, you'll see the actual plugin .zip within and that is the actual zip you should upload to install and it should easily be within the upload limits.


HTH! 😉
