(SKIP THIS STEP if you have already successfully uploaded SquareRoot theme via WordPress) – Now you will learn how to upload your files using the Filezilla client.

First, BACKUP YOUR FILES! This is always the safest thing to do.

Next, download and install the Filezilla Client – http://filezilla-project.org/

Now OPEN FILEZILLA to see this window:

ftp

Fill in your FTP information, like in the picture below:

ftp

Click “QUICK CONNECT” and Filezilla will load your website. Here is how it should look like:

ftp

Use the right side panel to navigate to the Worpdress theme folder on your server. In the example above, the Worpdress theme folder is public_html/wp-content/themes/. However, not all web hosting have public_html, it may have a different name in your server.

After you get to the WordPress theme folder, use the left side panel to locate where you extracted the theme folder from the downloaded zip file into. In this example, the theme folder is on the desktop.

Drag it into your web hosting:

ftp

Note – you may be asked if you want to overwrite files and/or folder.
Tick the option to “Always use this action” and click on “Ok.”, then wait until all files have been uploaded.

That’s all there is to it!
