By the time the texture was set it was unknown to the system and resulted in a bright green texture instead.

Like p3lim wrote. If the texture is unknown to the client for whatever reason you get a bright green texture.

I'm currently having no texture errors but I'm still at the beginning.

What happens if you do this:
Lua Code:
  1. frame:SetTexture("Interface\\Icons\\Spell_Holy_InnerFire")
Lua Code:
  1. frame:SetTexture([[Interface\Icons\Spell_Holy_InnerFire]])

Afaik double backslashes are needed if the texture name is used directly. There is an alternative way to write it without the leading backslash. Phanx or p3lim should know it. Sth like [[TEXTUREPATH]] or [=[TEXTUREPATH]=]
