    After deleting ElegantThemes 'Chameleon' 2.2, I downloaded 2.3, uploaded the zip file to WordPress, > Appearances > chose the zip file, clicked on "install now", and received the following message:

    'Unpacking the package…

    'Installing the theme…

    'Could not create directory. /home3/nativega/public_html/ildacom/wp-content/themes/Chameleon/

    'Theme install failed.'

    Please advise.

    You could have an ownership or permissions issue somewhere. You might try installing the theme using your ftp client or the file manager in your hosts control panel. Upload the entire un-zipped theme directory to /wp-content/themes/ and see if that does the trick.
