Sequoia Installation

After you have installed WordPress and purchased the theme, you should go to a Download tab on ThemeForest:

You have 2 options for downloading your theme:

  • All files and documentation (Complete Zip archive);

  • Installable WordPress file only.

Please, download Installable WordPress File Only file from the dropdown menu.

Stylemix Hosting offers automatic WordPress installation for you. However, if you wish to install WordPress yourself, follow the instructions in WordPress Codex.

There are 2 ways of theme installation. Let's take a look at both of them, so you can choose the most convenient one for you.

WordPress upload

  • Navigate to Appearance > Themes

  • Click Add New and click the Upload Theme button

  • Browse to find the file on your computer that you got from your Envato profile and click Install Now

  • Navigate to Appearance > Themes and click the Activate button to activate the newly installed theme

FTP upload

Before you begin the installation, there are a few things you need to have and do.

These are:

  1. Access to your web server (via FTP or shell)

  2. An FTP Client

  3. Your web browser of choice

  • Log into your FTP client to access your host web server

  • Browse to find the file on your computer (located in the downloader folder from ThemeForest) and unzip it.

  • Upload the folder you extracted from the zip file to yourdomain/wp-content/themes/ folder

  • Activate the newly installed theme by going to WordPress > Appearance > Themes and clicking the Activate button.
