How to Fix Safari Automatically Unzip Files

If you're seeing this error message, and if you're using a Mac then it happens because zip files automatically get unzipped on Mac when you download them. Do the following so your zip files don't open automatically after you download them:

  1. Go into Safari Preferences.
  2. Page titled General.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom.
  4. Deselect the box with the text "Open safe files after downloading".
  5. The themes and plugins will now download as a .zip file that uploads seamlessly to WordPress.
