    1. Make sure you have chosen the correct folder ("/addons", "/plugins", "themes")
    2. You need to unzip the files
    3. File permissions must be correct (the web user must be able to read the files)
    4. Delete /cache/addon.php, /cache/theme-index.php

    Maybe you should start with the last point (clearing cache)
