  2. 2.
    Click Add New
  3. 3.
    Click the Upload Theme
  4. 4.
    Find the package backstreet.zip on your device and click the Install Now button.

Missing the “style.css” stylesheet error?

A common issue, it means that you have uploaded the full package. you just need to unzip the package and find backstreet.zip archive to install

“Are you sure you want to do this?” error when installing the theme:

While installing your theme through the WordPress admin, you may encounter this error message. This is most likely due to your hosting php.ini configs.
The theme file is around 4mb and some servers set the default value for max_upload_limit to 2mb.
To solve this issue, you should either increase your maximum upload size to 10mb on your hosting or ask the hosting provider to do it for you. This is a very common request and they should be able to help you out. Once the limit is increased, you can re-try the install.

Install via FTP

A further option to install the theme would be to upload it via FTP manager. It really doesn’t matter which of the two ways you choose. Use this way when you get problems when installing.
  1. 1.
    Login to your FTP account or cPanel account and navigate to your WordPress Installation directory.
  2. 2.
    Navigate to the folder /wp-content/themes
  3. 3.
    Unzip theme archive backstreet.zip on your device.
  4. 4.
    Upload the "backstreet" folder (not the .zip-file)
  5. 5.
    Log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
  6. 6.
    Navigate to Appearance -> Themes.
  7. 7.
