Can’t Manage to Upload Theme, Please Help…

    I purchased a theme from When I tried to upload the .zip file in my wordpress admin, after chewing on it for a good while, it gives me a very strange error code.

    Warning: file(/home/nickypoo/public_html/wp-content/themes/themeforest_the-slingshot-wordpress-template_43550/style.css) [function.file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/nickypoo/public_html/wp-includes/theme.php on line 180

    Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/nickypoo/public_html/wp-includes/theme.php on line 180

    That code comes up right after it states that the theme uploaded successfully. When I go to my themes page, it’s not shown. When I go to my cpanel and check out the files, it’s there just like it should be, from what I can see.

    The theme I purchased has been sold a few hundred times, so I doubt it has anything to do with the theme. Also, I’m pretty ignorant when it comes to any sort of code. I’m completely lost, so any and all help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
