Where To Locate The Download Files

Step 1 – Login to the ThemeForest account that purchased Avada, navigate to your ‘Downloads’ tab, and then locate your Avada purchase.

Step 2 – Click the ‘Download’ button and choose to either download the ‘Installable WordPress file only’, which is just the WordPress installable file package, or choose to download ‘All Files & Documentation’ which is the full Avada Website Builder package. For installing Avada, only the Installable WordPress package is neccesary. If you want to install a Child Theme, you can find that in the All Files & Documentation zip file.

The FTP Installation Process

Step 1 – Log into your server installation via FTP. You can use software such as Filezilla for this.

Step 2 – If you have downloaded the Full Package from ThemeForest, please unzip the master Avada.zip file and then unzip the secondary Avada.zip file which will give an Avada folder. If you download the Installable WordPress file only, simply unzip this, and you will have the same Avada folder.

Step 3 – Using the FTP client, upload the extracted Avada folder to the wp-content > themes folder on your server. Make sure the folder name is unchanged, so it’s called ‘Avada’. This will take a few minutes, depending on your connection speed and your server.

Step 4 – Log in to your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to Appearance > Themes and clicking the ‘Activate’ button, for the Avada theme.

Step 5 – Once activated, you will be redirected to the Welcome Screen. You’ll see a prompt to register Avada and then install the required plugins, which are the Avada Core and Avada Builder plugins. Click here to learn how to install Avada’s required plugins.
