Theme would not install. Message is that the theme is missing the style.css stylesheet

Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Thanks

    Thank you for choosing RockSolid Themes. Did you follow the theme documentation, David? You can find it here: http://rocksolidthemes.com/documentation/wordpress/themes/eightytwenty

    You probably tried using the .zip file as is – but you need to unzip the package first, it contains the actual eightytwenty.zip.

    I did it the way you asked but now get this error after trying to Activate the theme.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/davidm/public_html/wp-content/themes/eightytwenty/functions.php on line 65

    I had a tech from the host company spend over an hour trying to resolve this with no luck.

    Please advise how to fix or advise how to obtain a refund.

    Best regards,

    The fix is very easy: Your hosting company provides you with a web space with an outdated PHP version. At the moment the recommended version of PHP is 5.3.24. or even better 5.4.14. Running an old version of PHP is a risk in terms of security and stability and should be avoided at all costs.
