    Thank you very much – as you will have gathered my IT knowledge is in the ‘Dummy’ category!
    I have just checked and it says the next back-up is scheduled for today so it is probably working – however it still says “No backup has been completed” which is waht puzzles me. Also could you tell me where the backup is being stored?

    Thanks again and best wishes

    Thank you for your help. Actually I have no problem with Dropbox – the file is sat there waiting to be retrieved – the only thing is I am being asked fpr the name or email of the person I want to share it with and I have no idea what to put there so that @bcrodua can retrieve it

    Thanks also for the info concerning the warning message – very helpful

    First of all, I am very grateful to you for your help. It is much apprecaited.
    You will probably have gathered that I am in no way an IT expert – despite spending half my life in front of a computer I have very little IT experience.
    I have spent around two hours figuring out how to do as you ask and send you the backup log. I have since set up Dropbox and put it there but when I go to share I have noo idea what to put in the “To: email or name” box – can you please advise.
    It seems that the data was backed up at some stage but I have no idea if it was right, where it is stored or if it will back-up regularly.
    One new development is that now, whenever I go to the UpdraftPlud Backup/restore page a box keeps coming up saying: “ says: Unexpected response: Security check” – I cant sem to be able to get rid of this.

    So, if you have a website address with hosting and you have downloaded a template from WordPress, how do you install the template. Do you do it from the host, in this case, GoDaddy or do you do it from WordPress
    I tried following the WordPress instructions which said
    1. Unzip the package from THemeforest – Fine – no problem
    2. In unzipped folder you will find a folder named ” Kute- Boutique theme” and 2 archives: “Kute-” file and “Sample Data” Oh no you wont find any of those files – there is a folder Boutique Theme and in there you find two folders with similar names but nt the one they tell you to find
    Why is it that this always happens? you can never follow the instructions without getting to a point where what they tell you to do you cannot do?
    So, I am none the wiser and something which should be reasonably easy becomes impossible!!

    Very helpful, Keith
    Thank you very much
    I will have another go!
    Best wishes

    Thank you very much for your help

    Actually I think I had better give up on this. All I wanted to do was to use a template which I had paid for in order to create a website and then upload it but is seems that this is not something that can be done easily.
    Quite frankly I have no idea what a server environment is. I have no idea what a MySQL database is or where to get one. I don’t even know what an FTP client is.
    Thanks for your help anyway.
    I presume I have to have a website all set up and running before I build it?

    Thank you very much for this
    All I am trying to do is to build a new website. I bought a template from Envato but it turned out that this was really from Themeforest. I downloaded a whole bunch of folders containing about a hundred other files and folders but could not do anyhting with them. Went back to Envato who just told me it was nothing to do with them – ask Themeforest, they said. Still waiting to hear from them. Anyway it seems that I cannot use or access the template without first downloading WordPress and I cannot do that which is why I am here. I am very grateful to you for your advice but, unfortunately, I think it would be well beyond my competence to follow it.
    I remain completely and utterly baffled as to why I have had to spend a whole day just trying to access a website template that I have paid for and to download the “Famous install in 5 Minutes” WordPress. – Utterly exhausted with it all!!
