    hi,
    when i install new theme it ask password and the user name of the host. I am giving them the correct user name and password allways. but i cant install a new theme.

    then it goes like this.. my domain name with webcity.com.au .. and the hosting with godaddy.
    and with the wpconfig file i had to change the local host to the connection name on the mysql file in godaddy. then only i could install it

    Installing theme: WP-Creativix 1.4.1
    Downloading install package from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/wp-creativix.1.4.1.zip.

    windows hosting on godaddy will always give you these problems
    you can switch to a linux server for free

    But what if you cannot switch to Linux? I own a windows box that I use to host multiple sites. I have this exact same issue with my WP install. I can manually install something by FTPing in myself and moving the files over, but going through the WP_admin would be ideal.

    This also plages the Plugin installation for me as well. Is there anything I can try to make it work?
