SECTION 03Common Issues And Troubleshooting with plugin install

In this section we will describe the most common errors that can occur when installing the plugin, and provide solutions for them.
I am getting "The Link You Followed Has Expired” Error in WordPress when trying to upload the plugin.

This error usually occurs when you are trying to upload a WordPress theme or a plugin to your website from the WordPress admin area.

WordPress hosting companies have a setting which controls the size of files you can upload from inside the WordPress admin area. They also have a setting which stops scripts from running too long.

You can try installing the plugin using above described FTP upload method or you can increase the limits for the maximum file size if possible. Please refer to the following article for details if you want to increase the limits: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-the-link-you-followed-has-expired-error-in-wordpress/

I can’t upload plugin. It’s saying it is invalid. What went wrong?

Please unpack plugin folder and upload to your wp-content/plugins using FTP. The archive contains not only plugin but also the other files.

If you want to upload in admin panel, you need to unpack plugin folder (opengraphiq) and pack it again as zip and then upload that zip.
