    uploading theme..

    most themes are already compressed when you download them or buy them...

    you just browse on your computer for the compressed file and then it will upload, un compress and install for you...

    Did you tried that software yourself?
    I'am asking because I can't make it to compress folder, only files and I can't upload bunch of sperately compressed files.

    Any suggestions?

    Why not just ftp the theme directory over to the server, and put it in /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/THEMENAME

    This is what we do all the time and it works fine.

    I can't compress directory where is theme with gzip, or with any other I've found tool that compresses to TAR.
    They only want to compress one file not whole directory.
    That is the BIG problem.

    Okay, ftp to your server with an account that works, upload the theme files to a directory. Then SSH into your server and do the following;

    cd /DIRECTORY YOU COPIED THEME TO
    cp -R * /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/NAME OF YOUR THEME

    That should do it!

    If you need help let me know :)

    About the theme, you mean this directory or?
    I see that theme I download has extension called .theme or something like that.
    If you mean extension, than I don't have one, I don't know how and with which I need to compress that directory that has theme inside.

    Downloading and opening theme was easy, but how to compress it and upload it is NOT :)

    Further help is needed.

    Diana - You downloaded and uncompressed the theme, you now have a directory with all the files and images, correct?

    If so, just ftp all of those files back to your server and then ssh into your server and mv them to the base/frontend area.

    Send me a P.M. if you need help.
