There are two ways you can install the Phox theme. You can choose to install it via FTP, which is what will be outlined in this article, or via WordPress. Before you can install Phox, please download the necessary theme files from ThemeForest first. Continue reading below for more information on these.

Downloading Phox Theme Files From ThemeForest

If this is your first time downloading the theme from ThemeForest, we recommend downloading the Full Theme Package to receive additional files such as documentation and the child theme. If you’ve already downloaded the Full Packages, then you can just use the WordPress Installable File.

How To Download The Phox Theme Files

  1. Go to ThemeForest and log in to your account.
  2. In the upper right corner, hover over your username and click on Downloads.
  3. Click on the Download button.
  4. Click on the “All files & documentation” link.

How To Install Phox Via FTP

  1. Log into your server installation via FTP. You can use software such as Filezilla for this.
  2. If you have downloaded the Full Theme Package from ThemeForest, please unzip the master file and then unzip the secondary file which will give a phox folder.
  3. Upload the extracted phox folder to the wp-content > themes folder on the server. Make sure the folder name is -> ‘phox’.
  4. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to Appearance > Themes and clicking the ‘Activate’ button, for the Phox theme.
