Theme Upload error

  • I get this error when trying to install a new theme using wp-admin/:
    “The uploaded file could not be moved to . . .”

    I’ve read several posts to this and consistently found these two suggestions:
    1- set the themes folder’s chmod permissions to 777
    a-I tried this aftyer an hour or so I start getting the same error, evn though chmod has been changed.
    b- this creates a security hole (doesn’t it?) so I set the chmod back to 755.
    2- Turn off the monthly uploads folder thingee..
    a- wasn’t on, doesn’t really apply to themese anyway, does it?

    I’m just using FTP to upload the themes gor now. But this is buggng me a bt.

    Any answers out there?

    Oh, the blog in question is Red Tide Florida/ if that matters…
