Install via FTP

If you have any problems with installing the theme from the WordPress Dashboard (for example, you see this error: “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini” or “Are you sure you want to do this?”), then you need to install it via FTP.

For this you need to upload non-zipped theme folder called himara to /wp-content/themes/ folder in your WordPress installation folder on your server.

Next, login to your WordPress admin page and activate the theme (Appearance  Themes).

After the successful activation see Step 9 of this documentation.
