Hi,

yes, the latest version of the theme only works with version 5.7.4 or above.

I see your license of the theme is currently assigned to a project. But you can unassing it at any time and use it in another project. So you should be able to install concrete 5.7.4 and the latest version of the theme using this license.

You only need to log in to concrete5.org with your account and go to Profile -> Projects. You should be able to see all your sites. If you click on your previous project/site (the one you assigned the license to), you'll be able to see all add-ons and themes that are linked to that project. Next to each theme and add-on, there is a red button ("Release from project") that allows you to release the license from the project.

Once you have released the license, you'll be able to assign it to your new project.

Let me know if this works for you.

Regards,

Jordi

Thank you for replying so quickly, I was a little hysterical in my initial post.

I am having a bit of a tough time installing 5.7.4, is there a good video on youtube?

here is the bit I am confused with The folders application/files/, application/config/, packages/ and updates/ will need to be writable by the web server process. This can mean that the folders will need to be "world writable", depending on your hosting environment. If your server supports running as suexec/phpsuexec, the files should be owned by your user account, and set as 755 on all of them. That means that your web server process can do anything it likes to them, but nothing else can (although everyone can view them, which is expected.) If this isn't possible, another good option is to set the apache user (either "apache" or "nobody") as having full rights to these file. If neither are possible, chmod 777 to files/ and all items within (e.g. chmod -R 777 file/*)

Sorry, I don't know of any videos about installing concrete 5.7.

Anyway, you can skip this paragraph for now and try to install. When you try to install, concrete5 will automatically check if those folders have the appropriate permissions.

If they don't, it won't let you install and it will tell you what permissions you need to fix (this can be done through your FTP program or through your hosting's control panel).


By the way, if you already had 5.7 installed and only need to update, here is a tutorial that may help you:
