comment Problem Installing a Premium Theme— File Permission Issue on a Mac, Local Machine?
Okay, I've got it!!! I went and checked the file permission on recaptchalib.php. It had "everyone" set to "no access". I changed it to "read only" and now it works. Huge thanks to @Chip Bennett and @toscho for helping me out. I'm psyched.

@Chip Bennett Thank you for the suggestion. I tried it, but no luck. I think that the uContact feature might be a plugin as they have uBillboard and uAd, which are plugins.

@toscho I tried both of your suggestions, but unfortunately no luck. Could the problem be with the file permissions? When I look at Get Info for the twentyten theme, the permissions are: me: read&write, unknown): read only, and everyone: read only. When I look at Get Info for Superb theme, I've got the permissions set as: Me: R&W and everyone: read only. I don't have an "unknown" under name. Could that have something to do with it? If so, how would I fix it. Thank you for taking the time to help me.

Hi @Milo, Thank you for your message. Where would I find the apache user details for my local machine? When I turn on the webserver, I click the MAMP symbol. It prompts me for a password which I input, and then it starts up. Is that the password your referring to? If so, how do I find my user name? I appreciate your help. Thanks.

Hi @Martin, I think that the theme developer will help me out. But, I probably won't get a reply until Mon. Hope to solve before then. Thanks for the reminder about the zip file. I did remember to use it. I need to figure out where to get the FTP username and password on my local machine. Any suggestions would be really appreciated? Thank you!

Hi @toscho, Thank you for the message. The code looks like this: code// Basic init if(!is_admin()) { include 'recaptchalib.php'; } code The line starting "include" is 136. I included a couple extra lines in order to add more context. Thank you.

Hi Chip, I ran out of space. I've only done an FTP to a production server. How do I do an FTP on my local machine? The Hostname is: mysite. I'm not sure what the FTP Username and FTP password is. Is the FTP password the same as what I use to fire-up MAMP Pro. I really appreciate the help. I'm stumped. Thanks.

Hi Chip, Thank you for your message! I contacted the theme devs, but they're in Europe and closed for the day. I deleted the theme. I clicked the install tab as you mentioned. I got an error asking whether the parent file was writable. I changed wp-content's permission to Me: "Read & Write", (unknown):"Read Only", and everyone: "Read & Write". I tried to change (unkown): to "Read & Write", but no luck. In any event, with the permission change, I've made it to "Connection Information". It's asking me for FTP Username and FTP Password. Where would I find this for my local machine? Thank you!
