How To Install WordPress Theme Uploading ZIP File
If you purchased a premium theme or download files, here's the easiest way to install a WordPress theme on your site by uploading a ZIP file
This method works for all themes. If you purchased a premium theme or otherwise found a theme that isn’t listed at WordPress.org, this is the easiest method for you to install a WordPress theme by uploading a .ZIP file on your site.
To get started, you should have a theme ZIP file from wherever you found the WordPress theme. If you’re struggling to find this ZIP file, I recommend that you contact the provider of your theme, as each provider will have a different process.
How To Install WordPress Theme By Uploading A ZIP File
Once you’ve located the ZIP file, here’s how to install it.

Secondly, on the next screen, click the Upload Theme button at the top:
After you click the button, a new interface window will appear:
- First, click Choose File and select the ZIP file from your computer.

There will be a slight delay while WordPress uploads and installs your theme. The time depends on your server, theme size, and hosting company. It usually takes 30 seconds. Then, you’ll be able to click the Activate button to make your new theme active:
Note: Sometimes, you will download a .zip master folder with some files. In this case, open this master.zip and extract/remove the themename.zip from it, do not try to upload the themeMaster.zip on your WordPress. Upload the themeName.zip.
