I uploaded a theme as a zip file and installed and it apparently activated but gave a blank screen. On going to http://******************/wordpress/ I still get a blank screen even the admin login screen is blank!! Fortunately this blog isn't important or large ........ So WP (2.9) isn't loading as far as I can tell, I've tried un-install/reinstall but the existing implementation won't delete or be over written, I'm trying cmod from Filezila to sort the permissions. FileZilla didn't work some of the files won't change returning " operation not permitted" I can't change them and I can't delete them, I've tried again using Plesk but that wont do it as I'm not the owner. I need to get control of the wordpress directory so I can at least delete it and reload the blog. How do I do it? Many Thanks aamcle PS Is it a good idea to keep a "spare WP blog " to try out themes on? That way I could filter out incompatible/corrupt shit before it can do significant harm.
