LESS bootstrap compilation issues

I created a rough build of a site based on Twitter Bootstrap 2.1.0.  The LESS compiled fine on my local production machine. However, it won't compile after I've uploaded it.

The site is here: http://lionchemicalcapital.com/chempr/

The site is based on a Wordpress theme: http://320press.com/wpbs/

The site is hosted by Network Solutions.

I've checked and all of my files eem to be in place.

I tried using SimpleLESS to compile, but it only generated empty css files.

I feel like a total freaking nitwit!  I suspect it may be a file path issue, but I am not sure how to correct the issue.

The error seems fairly straight forward

load error: failed to find /data/9/0/22/53/511705/user/522114/htdocs/chempr/wp-content/themes/wordpress-bootstrap/lionchemicalcapital.com/wordpress-bootstrap/less/variables.less

Did you check that the specified path exists - through FTP check here

Thanks for the reply.

That error was generated by a Wordpress LESS plugin I installed/flailed at to try to resolve this.  I just disabled it and the site does load, albeit without the working css.

I checked and the variables.less and other .less files are there. I wonder if the host has a wonky htaccess configuration.

Thanks for any other ideas!

I raised the white flag, self-compiled from Firebug and added to my header.  Thank you for your help!

Because I had to get this done asap and, while lame, this worked.
