So I’m trying to install my first theme - possibly I’m missing something obvious. It’s the bluestreet theme from Wordpress.org.
Here’s what I’ve tried WRT https://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes#Adding_New_Themes_using_the_Administration_Panels
WP Admin Panels / Appearance / Themes / find it / Install. It always says “Username/Password incorrect for zzzz”. I know the correct password - I use it for my FTP client WinSCP.
WP Admin Panels / Appearance / Themes / Add New / Upload Theme. It always says “Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2016/03. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”
FTP onto server, upload zip contents under wp-content/themes. I get an error: “Permission denied.”
I tried DreamHost support - they kept telling me I didn’t know my FTP password. I can demonstrate that is not true.
I’m stumped - can anyone help?
