    Your best bet would be to download a theme, rename it, reupload it without making any changes, switch you "your" skin and check that everyting looks precisely like it did before.

    From there make a change to your skin, saving the changes in a different location, tar and upload. If anything is missing, you won't have done anything too wrong as your modified version will not have overwritten the previous working version. Just upload the previous working version instead and check that everything is still ok, and then try again.

    Repeat until everything is to your liking.

    Through this process you'll soon figure out what effects your changes have and, most importantly, what not to change!

    Sounds like you're transferring the command file in binary mode. Make sure it's in ascii mode.

    I am using ipswitch WS FTP too login to the root ssh ftp (do it through the wizard) I then went to the site manager and turned the transfer mode to ascci and uploaded my theme directly to

    /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/themes

    and it worked! :D
