Prblems uploading premium theme to WordPress


I have just installed a new WordPress blog, after buying a $40 premium theme and trying to upload the .zip file [wp-admin/update.php?action=upload-theme].

I do not have the skill of confidence to manually install WordPress or a theme, I have used the one-click custom install and this method is important for me as a newbie.

All I get is the follow browser message:

"Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@XXXXXXXXXX and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."


looks like a problem with your .htaccess file. if you don’t know what that is or how to fix it, start over from scratch.


Did you use a “simple” or “custom” one-click? This won’t work with simple.
