    Im trying to install a theme I downloaded from this website http://themeforest.net Im using xampp and im not sure how to install this dowloaded theme using xampp.
    I tried installing this theme with the zip folder (in zip format) in wordpress but I get the error ” The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed. “

    I found a similar problem on wordpress website but they mentioned using FTP but I don’t know how to use FTP with xampp http://wordpress.org/support/topic/the-theme-is-missing-the-stylecss-stylesheet

    I want to install the theme and test it out locally before i make it live or buy a domain name.

    This is my first time doing this so I don’t totally know how things work together, don’t know if im using the description/terms but I hope I described the problem well enough. Any help will be appreciated

    Thanks
