FTP Install / Upgrade Problems (11 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm hoping someone can steer me in the right direction.
    I've been attempting to upgrade my Udesign theme to v 1.7.

    Uploading via admin panel of the zip theme file yields this error message:
    Destination folder already exists. /home2/practip7/public_html/wp-content/themes/u-design/

    Prior to uploading, I deleted (via ftp) the old version of the theme.
    But I still get the "folder already exists" error message.

    I've reviewed the remote site to search folders/directories/subs
    but cannot find the destination folder noted above.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks
    JCD

    Thanks Robin. When I attempt to upload via ftp I also get them same error message as using admin panel: Destination folder already exists. /home2/practip7/public_html/wp-content/themes/u-design/

    When I attempt to search the client ftp I cannot locate practip7 or the public_html directories. Its as if they don't exist.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the follow up Robin.

    I accessed the remote client via ftp /wordpress/content/udesign theme

    I did not use the practip7/public html directory roots

    Yes I have a screenshot but can't paste it into the forum.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    The udesign theme does not have a deactivate link (via Admim/themes)

    I will go ahead and activate twentyeleven and see what happens

    I will post again in a minute

    I dont know if you drink, but if you do I owe you a beer.

    After activating 2011, deleting udesign old, the new theme loaded properly.

    Thank you, thank you!
