Common Installation Errors

If you experience any errors during the installation, please read this short section before contacting us:

  1. I get the error: “Unexpected T_OLD_FUNCTION” or something similar: Please upgrade to php5.1. We don’t support any prior versions.
    To update, refer to your host’s documentation.
  2. WordPress tells me the stylesheet is broken.
    This error comes often, when you upload the files via ftp, but the upload somehow was not completed. Remove all the theme’s files from your server and upload again.
  3. I get the error: “Undefined function xyz”.
    As above, this is an indicator that the files might not be completely uploaded. Reupload to be sure!
