I am very new to WordPress etc. I have been having trouble uploading the theme to WordPress, I’m not too sure what I am doing wrong. But whenever I try and upload the ‘enfold.zip’ file I always get a 500 (Internal Server) Error.May 7, 2013 at 9:41 pm #117940
You can try uploading via FTP if you are unable to install with the wordpress admin. See: https://vimeo.com/channels/aviathemes/64927356

You can use either of them as long as it allows you to unzip the file so that the inner contents can be uploaded.May 8, 2013 at 2:07 pm #117945
I unzip the main download then every time I upload the enfold.zip, it gets to 100% and then I get a 500 (Internal Server) Error.May 8, 2013 at 2:19 pm #117946
Have you tried uploading via FTP? Your server may have an issue with the amount of time it takes to unzip and uploading via FTP will bypass the issue.

Hey, I was just about to try that. (I have hosting with GoDaddy) When I click on File Manager (Which was working yesterday). I get an error saying ‘Could not get directory info’ ?May 8, 2013 at 5:03 pm #117948
Ignore that last post. I got it sorted and I am currently uploading via FTP, hope it works.May 8, 2013 at 5:11 pm #117949May 8, 2013 at 5:17 pm #117950
Glad we could help :)
Let us know if you have any other questions or issues.
As an aside, GoDaddy’s servers while getting better are still pretty awful. I would look into BlueHost as a comparable alternative that will keep things running on the server side of things a lot better than GoDaddy.
If you have more of a budget for hosting, MediaTemple is where I host all of my client sites but the base cost is a bit higher.

Sorry. I seem to be causing alot of trouble. I am aware I may have accidently deleted something. I’m not entirely sure what. Is there an easy fix or should I re-install it? http://www.arcconcepts.co.uk/May 8, 2013 at 7:24 pm #117952
It looks like you may have just imported the dummy data multiple times causing things to get duplicated.
The only thing you’ll actually need to fix is in your Appearance>Menus within the wordpress admin. Go there and for the main menu that was created just delete it and re-build it.May 8, 2013 at 7:29 pm #117953May 9, 2013 at 12:37 am #117954
