I'm not a php or wordpress guy but you generally need to define the body in css which I don't think you can do on that template as it looks like it's an include inside the body tag

In your main template (or associated style sheet) you'd add something like (depends on how you want your background to look)

body {
      width:100%;
      margin:auto;
      background: url('images/bg-body.jpg') no-repeat center center fixed;
      -moz-background-size: cover;
      -webkit-background-size: cover;
      -o-background-size: cover;
      background-size: cover;
}

If your only looking to do it on that particular page or page-template, then you would use the WordPress body classes.


body.my-template-php{
width:100%;
      margin:auto;
      background: url('images/bg-body.jpg') no-repeat center center fixed;
      -moz-background-size: cover;
      -webkit-background-size: cover;
      -o-background-size: cover;
      background-size: cover;

Just style the body normally by adding something like the following to your styles.css file:

body { background: url(someBackgroundImage.jpg) repeat left top #ffffff; }

Make sure the image is in your template folder...
