    Hi there! I just downloaded 1.7 off of Themeforest and am trying to upgrade on WP from 1.4.

    Verbatim, here is what it says:

    Installing Theme from uploaded file: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -portfolio-theme.zip

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    Soo… What gives? I tried to do the install via Uploading the zip file into WP.


    Found another thread and realized I was trying to upload the entire zip file from themeforest. Opened it and found the flashlight.zip. However, new problem. Won’t let me install since I already have a folder the same name.

    Destination folder already exists. /home/kscooley/public_html/wp-content/themes/flashlight/

    Is there a way around this without taking my site down?


    Bump. :)


    Ismael, you replied to my other post and since I’m not sure if this is a piece of the puzzle to my other question… I figured since you tagged yourself there, I would tag you here, too. If you can help with this question, as well, I’d appreciate it!



    You’ll need login to via your FTP and your web host’s File Manager and delete the existing Flashlight folder. Once that’s done you can try uploading the zip again.




    Excellent, thanks Mya!


    Hi kscooley,

    Glad that Mya helped you. :)
