FTP installation

In order to install the theme, you need to have a WordPress copy already installed on your own server.

Installing Viva Theme from the FTP:

  1. Log into your hosting account via your FTP software client (FileZilla, WinSCP, Transmit or your preferred FTP client).
  2. Unzip the viva.zip file. Use only the extracted Viva theme folder.
  3. Upload the extracted Viva theme folder into wp-content > themes folder and wait for the upload.
  4. Activate the newly installed theme by navigating to Appearance > Themes and clicking the Activate button.
  5. Once you activate Viva, you will see a notification message to install and activate the required & recommended plugins.
  6. Install the following required plugins: WPBakery Page Builder, Slider Revolution, Redux Framework, Viva Addon, Contact Form 7 and Breadcrumb NavXT. The WooCommerce plugin is recommended only if you are planning on building a website with eCommerce capabilities.
  7. Once you have installed the required plugins, proceed with the Demo Contents import.
