    hi Paul,

    did you upload the childtheme via Appearance > Themes > Add New?

    What childtheme are you trying to upload?

    Very funky. Shows install failed but when I go to appearance, there it is. Similarly, installed another child theme and said – cheating, eh – theme does not exist, but go to appearance and voila, there it is.

    Anyway, all’s well that ends well. Thank you. Item closed.

    I had the same error messages, but did not succeed in loading any child themes. It said “file already exists” What can I do??

    Hello Obico,
    There is an issue with wordpress when installing child themes.After getting the error please go back to Appearance >Themes and check if the child theme has already been installed.
    If not installed you can install it manually:
    -Access the the folder wp-content >themes located in your server/host (you can access the folder from your cpanel/host login section >file manager.You can also access the folder via ftp)
    -Download the child theme zipped file >>http://childthemes.premiumpress.com/?s=
    -Unzip and upload the child theme at wp-content >theme (or upload then unzip)
    -Go to Appearance >Themes >Activate child theme
