Installing Theme on localhost (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    I'm currently fiddlin around with installing wordpress locally on my development machine. More specifically, I'm trying to add a new theme (Easel to be more precice). Once I get to uploading the theme from the "Install Theme" tab, WordPress asks me to enter connection information for my FTP server.

    But that's just it, I don't have an FTP server, I'm working locally. So, how do I go about finishing this instllation? Do I have to set up a local FTP server?

    Thanks in advance!

    Your working locally? Using XAMPP? WAMP?
    If that's the case then you can just copy the theme directly into the themes directory of your current wordpress installation.

    Weill thats what I this initially, but for some reason, it does not show up in the theme section. I read somewhere that you have to make sure that the directory of the theme ZIP file contains what you need (and not a sub-directory). But it seems fine to me.

    Oh, and I'm using LAMP on Ubuntu.

    It might be a rights on the newly created directory (Although I think I checked). I'll check that out just in case.
