I have encountered the below message when attempting to upload a purchased theme:
Unable to create directory /home/.../public_html/wp-content/uploads/2011/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
I have read many forum posts about this issue related to uploading media, not specifically themes. Here's what I have done so far, which has not worked:
Checked dashboard/media settings. field is blank.
Changed permissions on wp-content to 755.
Of note: when I uploaded a theme from within admin, as for all WP updates, I am prompted within the dashboard for my password. I think this has something to do with it--when you upload a theme from computer, I get no prompt. does it want it and doesn't know how to ask for it in this screen?
Is there a way to install a theme in FTP so it will work flawlessly?
Please folks, any help you can offer is appreciated, I need to get this fixed for a client!
