    This may not be anything to do with the theme, but wanted to see if anyone can chime in anyways.

    I’m running XAMPP on Windows 7 machine for local testing and learning (WP newbie). When I try to instal MINT, this is the message I get:

    “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.”

    Any suggestions/help on what the problem may be, would be much appreciated.

    You will find in the xamp file structure contains a settings file called php.ini
    As the error message suggests, this need editing to increase the allowed file size upload limit.

    Best to stop xampp, edit the file and then restart it.

    The other location where a setting could affect uploads is the apache configuration files. Usually called httpd.conf
