MAMP: How to get rid of the error message “The link you followed has expired” when attempting to upload a WordPress theme

php_value upload_max_filesize 64M

php_value max_execution_time 300
php_value max_input_time 300

This resolved the problem. This method was among several possible solutions I found at the following link:
