Common Error during Installation.
The error: "Maximum Execution Time Exceeded in WordPress"
If you are installing your theme from the WordPress theme installer, but get a message that says "Maximum Execution Time Exceeded in WordPress", most likely your web server is configured with PHP settings that are too low to allow the theme ZIP file to upload. Specifically, PHP is configured to a maximum file upload size limit at 8 megabytes or less. The theme ZIP is about 10 megabytes in size. Thus, the web server is rejecting the upload. WordPress is giving you a rather ambiguous message in response. This is not a theme fault or bug. There two ways to solve this problem:.
Instructions about memory limit increase. you can increase the maximum upload size in WordPress. Edit the .htaccess file in your WordPress site’s root folder and add the following code:
php_value max_execution_time 500
php_value memory_limit 64M
php_value post_max_size 4M
php_value max_input_time 500
php_value upload_max_filesize 10M
