Topic : Installing through CPanel, how to add new theme?


Posted By: courtssite on August 29, 2018, 12:16 pm
Hi,

I am totally new to this.

I have logged into CPanel and gone to install the WordPress app which says is through Softaculus. It's given me a selection of themes at the bottom but they aren't the ones i found on the WordPress.org site. Please can you tell me how to add the themes i want into Softaculous before i continue with the installation?

Also, why do we use Softaculous to install WordPress into Cpanel? How come we don't just download Wordpress.org from their own site?

Sorry, i'm just trying to get my head around all the different ways of making a self-hosted WP site.

Thanks

Hi,

Softaculous helps you install WordPress with just one click so you do not need to upload the files manually, create the database and run the installer. Softaculous does that for you.

Softaculous not just helps to install but it also helps you maintain the application for you i.e. you can upgrade an installation, auto upgrade, backup, clone, staging.

Regarding the themes, if you do not find any theme that suits your need to the install form of WordPress you can leave the theme field empty (i.e. do not select any theme) and WordPress will be installed with the default WordPress theme.

You can later install any theme that you need from WordPress admin panel -> Appearance -> Themes section.

I'm not able to change my default theme, the appearance section does not show "add new" tab. I've uploaded my envato theme to themes folder, as usual.

My installation is through softaculous tool, provided by Ifastnet hosting service.

Can you help me please?

Hi,

It seems the account you are logged in as does not have privileges to add new theme.

Please make sure you are logged in with an account which has administrator privileges.

Or you can open a support ticket with us so that we can check this for you :
