Using Bluehost File Manager To Install A WordPress Theme

not reliable! Website has been going down everyday. loosing emails. tech sucks. they have no idea what is going on or when it will be fixed. they did remind me of the tos and that they dont have refunds.

The Local Business Web School provides small businesses with an easy to follow, step-by-step plan to create a successful website and social media site(s) for optimal internet presence. The goal is to bring you new customers. Learn what your small business website must have, and how to market your business in today’s ever increasing social environment.

FTP is not the only way to upload your files. In fact, cPanel’s File Manager not only uploads your files, but you can delete files, create directories, create and extract zip files, edit files, and so much more! Best of all you can do everything without any software and do it on any computer that has access to the Internet.

This video shows an alternative way of installing a theme, it also shows what happens when you install a faulty theme.

    It's possible that the theme you tried to upload was faulty. This happened to me when I tried to upload a theme where the CSS style sheet was missing.

    There is a link to another video in the description that shows this error and also shows an alternative way of installing a theme.

    Hope that helps. πŸ™‚

    Okay, I'm just going to straight say this is THE video people need to watch. I was stressing and getting very frustrated until this popped up on google. Thankyou so much.
    The step by step guide worked 100%, and no other guides online were of any help.

    great video assist for uploading file to server, but what if there is no wp file in the zip I uploaded. Is there another file that will install themes in word press?

    Thanks Michelle! Even though this video is 2 years old, every thing you said was exactly the same in my CPanel, and it worked like a charm. You helped me upload a hefty 11 Meg zip file theme. Thanks so much!!

    Hi, I made an attempt to edit the CSS of my theme and the whole website went blank (I suppose I did something wrong), I can't even get on my wordpress dashboard. Has that ever happened to anyone?

    Would I solve the problem if I re-uploaded the theme through Bluehost?
