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 the 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.
