Unable to Upload

Some hosts will limit the file size so low (i.e. ~2mb) that installing plugins/add-ons through the admin is impossible. If you have this issues you have two options:

  1. Talk to your host about increasing your upload limits. Here is an article that may help you update the limits yourself.
  2. Upload the unzipped plugins/add-ons via FTP. Here is an article on how to use FTP to upload WordPress plugins.
