    go to yoursite.com/wp-admin/theme-install.php
    It has to be in a zip
    if you ftp it just upload the folder, not the zip

    If the op can't install a theme in Wp it's pointless talking about ftp.
    Go in your admin panel, select appearance from your left hand side menu > theme >install new theme,>
    Browse to where your theme is saved > upload and activate.
    Make sure it's in a .zip file not a .rar.

    Are you self hosted or hosted on someone else's domain?

    Get an easy ftp program like Filezilla. Upload your theme into the WP Content/WP Theme folder and then in your internet browser, go into your wp-admin section page of your blog, click on the appearance section and choose Themes. You should see the default theme and also the new theme you just added via FTP. Activate the new theme.
