    Hey guys!

    Thanks for any direction that you can give me. I just did this to install a new theme:

    Downloaded theme as .zip file to my computer
    Uploaded the .zip file to my server using the File Manager in Cpanel
    Extracted .zip file

    Now whenever I try to get to my site, it looks as if I hadn't started building a site yet and whenever I try to open the administrative panel for WP, it says "404 Not Found"

    Huh? LOL!

    Maybe you should try the good old fashioned way: download, UNZIP on your computer and upload via FTP.
    No file manager, no unzipping on the server.
