Impossible to install new theme on localhost

  • I installed yesterday a new LAMP server on my Ubuntu 10.10 machine.

    Apache2 is on port 80, I guess

    WordPress runs fine, but I can’t install a new theme via the requiered way:

    http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/themes.php

    I dowloaded the atahualpa theme in zip format to my PC and then tryed to install it via ‘Upload’.

    The next step after indicating which file it is, the wordpress interface sends back an error message:

    “Failed to connect to FTP Server localhost:21”

    My FTP username and Password are of course those I use to log in to wordpress. I tryed to use the username and passwordt for the LAMP server, but that failed also. I tryed then to replace the ‘localhost’ by the IP adress of my PC + combination of both usernames and passwords. Neither of them did work.

    I suppose that is, because the apache2 running the LAMP server is on another port (80) or can I install a new theme another way?

    Kind regards,
    Cor
