Thanks for the tutorial.
At this point, I'm getting the following error: "JInstaller: :Install: Cannot find XML setup file". Where did I go wrong?

Version of Joomla is Joomla! 3.1.5

This error can be caused by a few reasons.

1) The theme that you are trying to install is for an older version of Joomla and is not compatible with the version of Joomla that you are on.
2) The permissions for the XML file within the theme has incorrect permissions. Try changing them to 755.
3) The XML file for the theme that you are trying to install has a coding error within the XML file.

If you have looked through all of these options and are still having trouble, I recommend speaking with the developer of that theme as they may be able to point you in the right direction.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm using the code as specified in this tutorial so I'm starting from scratch.

It seems to be working fine now. After too many install errors, I took a different approach by starting with a basic template that installs ok and then replacing it with the code in the tutorial.

Thanks!
