    I'm guessing you're probably uploading it to a directory such as:

    /wp-content/themes/yourtheme/yourtheme

    since a few themes have double directories to avoid spilling the themes files into a directory that's already full.

    Please provide details of the exact directory structure of the theme you are having difficulties loading.

    Your blog is hosted on your computer?
    Or your own webserver?

    hobbyhuset, at hobbyhuset.se/blogg/wordpress/ the theme dragonfly loads fine, and at hobbyhuset.wordpress.com/ the account has been deleted.

    Did you fix it?
