You get the “are you sure” error? Its 99% likely a hosting thing. You should install it via FTP – drop it into the themes folder (UNZIPPED) and you can activate it from your dashboard

thank you charly. I tried it via filezilla. I have installed wp on my laptop locally, so I do not know how I can connect with the server. Shouldn’t I give the following 127.0.0.1 as server? I really do not know how to proceed

If you’re working locally, the server directory is just a folder on your computer, so you move files around just like any other files on your hard drive (copy/paste), and there is no need for FTP. FTP is for file transfer to remote connections.

dear sevenspark

thank you very much. I found on my computer (I work with AMPPS in order to have mysql, etc.) the wp folders. I copied the downloaded file and wanted to post it in the themes folder. unfortunately, it does not post it. Do I need some special administrator rights? How?
