Before i forget my droplet is Running Ubuntu 14.04, with a LAMP stack.

I’m trying to activate a Wordpress Theme called Gauge on my Website, the theme was send via SFTP to my server. Every time i activate the theme i get the:

Error: There was an error connecting to the server, Please verify the settings are correct.

I contacted the Ghost Pool ( creator of the theme ), and they said this is a server error, and i’m the only person so far who had this problem. The problem is i have absolute no idea on what to do.

Any ideas on what to do? Thanks in advance!
