    hello everyone,
    I have recently started a new blog. I installed WordPress 5 times due to an error but every time it is the same case.

    In the Appearance>>Themes the error is shown as:

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    Name Description
    montezuma Stylesheet is not readable.
    twentyeleven Stylesheet is not readable.
    twentyten Stylesheet is not readable.



    In the dashboard, the error is showing as:

    Error: The themes directory is either empty or doesn't exist. Please check your installation.



    I used google search and every single options available in the sites. Please help me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well... the first thing I'd do is check that the themes directory is in fact intact.
    You'll find it at wp-content/themes
    If it's a new site, just reinstall (download latest.zip)

    its seems the wordpress is not reading the basic themes which come with the packgae due to some reason. now just download any theme and transfer the contents into the themes folder using ftp or upload the zipped file using yourdashboard.

    Try changing the permissions on the themes folder to 755.

    Upload a New theme and delete the former.

    Reinstall the TwentyEleven theme from here:

    Code:
    [URL]http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentyeleven[/URL]
    Activate it. (Make a backup and delete the previous TwentyEleven theme folder either using FTP or cPanel if needed.)

    If you can activate that theme then you can try reinstalling other themes. I hope they will be installed without further problems.

    Yes I agree to chmod being the problem - google it - if you use Filezilla just right click and check permissions. Easy.
