Trying to upload a customized theme created by a freelancer for my blog. Have had numerous error messages while trying to upload. Most recent error is when uploading from a theme browse search reading:
Unpacking the package…
The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature
Freelancer said nothing wrong with format once script is changed to SQL.
Any ideas? Is this usually such a process to upload a custom theme?
I have had one issue after another trying to make this simple step happen.
Can you unzip the theme .ZIP file on your local hard drive? (PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT usually means that the source .ZIP file is corrupt).
If you CAN unzip it, take these steps.
1. Unzip the file into a directory “themename” (with the right name).
2. Upload the “themename” folder to your server, into wp-content/themes/
3. Login to your admin and go to Appearance -> Themes to activate the theme.
