  1. To solve “The link you followed has expired” Do the following fix.

    You may need to update htaccess file and php.ini file. What version of PHP do you use?

    If it is 5, try upgrade to 7 (7.0, 7.1 or 7.2).

    It is because the size of the file is too big to upload using WordPress (it has a default maximum size it allows).

    You can change the default maximum size or alternatively you can login to your website hosts control panel and manually upload the zip files to the plugin directory and unzip from there.

    To increase the size with htaccess: Add the below code.

    php_value memory_limit 256

    php_value upload_max_filesize 64M

    php_value post_max_size 64M

    php_value max_execution_time 300

    php_value max_input_time 1000

    To increase the WordPress default with php.ini. Find below code in your php.ini file and change the values with the following:

    memory_limit = 256M

    upload_max_size = 64M

    post_max_size = 64M

    upload_max_filesize = 64M

    max_execution_time = 300

    max_input_time = 1000

  2. It could be the file is too large/it’s taking too long to load- yes check with your hosting as to the PHP settings. I got that message when making a new Divi site. The problem was fixed by changing PHP settings to the latest version and updating the time levels. Contact your web hosting company as they should be able to help you change the settings.

  3. Fix to The link you followed has expired Divi theme:

    Unzip the ZIP file of the theme on your computer, and then upload the Divi folder to your themes folder via FTP (whether that’s a standalone program like FileZilla or through the cPanel). I almost always have problems with software on the server trying to unzip files, unless I run the unzip directly through the ssh terminal.

    It happened because your websites reached the memory limits of your hosting (probably the theme files are too big), the solution here is to upload your theme folder via Ftp Client to the folder wp-content/Wp-themes.
