    I noticed about two weeks ago that my blog wasn't showing however I could and still assess my dashboard.I later learnt that my theme was gone and same for the plugins. I have tried to re-install the theme but I keep getting:

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    Could not create directory. /home/deedee/public_html/wp-content/themes/woody/

    Theme install failed.

    What do i do? Thanks

    Does the wp-content/themes folder exist? If so, is it populated with the twentyeleven and twentyten folders?

    The themes folder is there.

    This is what its showing:

    Current Theme

    by

    OPTIONS: Widgets

    Available Themes

    You only have one theme installed right now. Live a little! You can choose from over 1,000 free themes in the WordPress.org Theme Directory at any time: just click on the Install Themes tab above.

    Try uploading a fresh, unpacked, copy of the Twenty Eleven folder to wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    Hi esmi,

    I have the same problem but when I try to upload any themes-twentyeleven included- it gives me the same error.

    Do you have any other idea in mind please?

    Kind regards,

    Krisz
