I am trying to install a new theme manually, but each time the installation process fails. The error I see say "The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet."

Any help on the matter is highly appreciated.

Hey rafab,

There are a few possible reasons for not to be able to install your there:

  • The installation package might be broken
  • Your hosting company may have imposed limits 
  • or Your PHP settings are two low 

To be able to install your theme you may try to upload it to wp-conten/theme folder and extract it there or contact your hosting support team and ask to check the case.
