It’s easy to get caught up in the details of the design and installation process and forget about what’s important.

Reinstall theme from zip file

If you’re a beginner, you likely only installed WordPress once or twice. Maybe you’ve installed WordPress on a test site and want to move everything to your main site. Perhaps you’re a professional designer, have built a new place, and want to start fresh. Whatever the reason, there’s a good chance that you will want to reinstall your theme.

You can do this easily by uploading your theme’s zip file. But if you’re like most people, you’re you will mistakes. So let’s fix that. Let’s say you’re using the Breathe theme. You’re ready to move everything to the new site, and yu’ve ded the zip file.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • First, upload the zip file to your server.
  • Next, go to your WordPress dashboard.
  • Once you’re logged in, click on the Appearance tab.

Reinstall themes from FTP

If you’re new to WordPress, chances are you’ve already installed a theme and want to reinstall it. You might have done so by manually downloading the theme files to your computer. But what if you’re using a web host that doesn’t provide this feature?

Or what if you have a hosting plan that includes FTP but doesdoesn’t’tow to use it? We’re going to take a look at the easiest way to reinstall WordPress themes from FTP.

Updating Theme Files

There are two types of files you’ll want to update when you’re installing a new theme. First, you’ll need to update any custom CSS files. These are usually found in the style.css file in your theme’s root directory.

This is where you can add additional styling to your site.

Second, you’ll need to update the theme’s PHP code. This is where you can add custom functions, variables, or actions to the WordPress code base.

Updating these files is usually the easiest part of installing a new theme.

Backup and Restore

I’m just a WordPress beginner. Don’t follow what I’m about to say as gospel. If you’re having issues, look at other articles and try to find your solution. Before you install your theme, back up your website; this way, you can revert to the previous version if anything goes wrong. When installing an article, you should do it on a separate test server. If you accidentally delete your blog, you can easily restore it.
