    Hi mikep!

    Was this while trying to install using the WPMU Dev dashboard? <<Probably the best way to install and update WPMU Dev products!

    Were you using FTP? <<Very EZ to use, and recommended if you have multiple domains on one c-Panel

    Were you using the WP admin dashboard to upload the themes? <<Most common

    Was you using the file manager in you c-Panel? <<Nice feature!

    Did you try to upload the themes to the plugin folder? Now this question is not an insult, but it does happen; even I have done it, and there is a rumor that I did it again yesterday, but I cannot confirm or deny that at this time. :slight_smile:

    Thanks Mike!

    Hi MTB1701,

    Yes, I tried to install the package from the WP admin dashboard. First time I had to increase the allowed MB, after that I tried again and thought everything was OK until that error came up.

    Any suggestions?

    It will do that.

    The package is a collection of theme in a huge compressed file. WordPress will look for /theme-name/theme-files.

    That wouldn’t be the case here because it is multiple theme.

    So you must unpack the theme collection and then upload them over FTP.

    Take care.

    Hi MikeP!

    In your cPanel file manager or via FTP; go into you WP-content folder, click themes, look to see if the Farms 133 pak is there. then highlight it to the right, and delete. I have included a Snip Shot just replace the farms 133 with my 2011-test sample.

    Then install the WPMU Dev dashboard and try agian, or you can unpack it in a folder and upload it to the wp-content/theme folder.

    I recomend using the WPMU Dev dashboard.

    Thanks Mikep!
