    I'm getting the following message when i try to change of Theme from the Dashboard, Appearance, Install Themes and I select Delicate. I then enter my login info and i get the following message.

    (Installing Theme: Delicate 3.5.3

    Downloading install package from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/delicate.3.5.3.zip…

    Download failed. Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writable.)

    I did also try to add a plugin and got this message.

    (Installing Plugin: Plugin Directory Stats 0.1.1

    Downloading install package from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/plugin-directory-stats.0.1.1.zip…

    Download failed. Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writable.)

    Do i need to activate something in the Dashboard to be able to edit the World press.

    Thanks

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.
