    How do I install a theme w/o ftp. I am installing LOCALLY on my computer NOT the server. I also need to access that theme from Dashboard. I have tried to install the theme through sudo m- and while I can see the folder, I can open the folder, I CANNOT access the Theme through Dashboard.

    Download the theme to your computer, unpack the archive and
    drop the theme's folder into wp-content/themes. Job done! :-)

    I tried that originally and got "access denied" prompt.
    I did manage to access the folder through Chown sudo chown -R www-data your-theme-directory. That got me into the folder. I was able to put the theme into the themes folder. But now I cannot access it either through WP Dashboard.

    Sounds like you have issues within your local server.

    @musebelts - creating duplicate threads really causing confusion for people helping out here - that's why you should be continuing here:
