Solution: The link you followed has expired – WordPress ;

1: Download your WordPress theme or plugin that is causing the error.

Download the theme or plugin to your computer. You either extract here or just leave it like it came. I would say extract the files to avoid CSS issues.

2: Go to your host – In my case it’s GoDaddy

I currently use GoDaddy. Whatever host you use, it should work. if you are familiar with FTP then jump to number 5

3: Open CPanel

Go into your CPanel of the domain you are having the issues with.

4: Open document root for the domain ( Click on file manager)

Make sure to open the document root or public_html of the domain

5: Go to content

Once you are in there, go to content, open it and go to the next step

6: Go to themes/plugins

In here, you should see all your themes or if you are working on the plugin then you should see all your plugins.

7: Upload the zip file- Go back- Extract the file

Upload the files of the theme or plugin and extract the files. It should create a folder without the .zip extension.

8: Delete the zip file (Optional)

You can delete the compress zip folder to save your file space on your server.

9: Open website frontend admin dashboard

Now log into your WordPress admin dashboard. Example www.domain.com/admin

10: Go to themes and activate

You should see the theme or plugin. Go ahead and activate the theme or plugin and this should fix the problem.
