This tutorial will show you how to upload the WordPress theme to GoDaddy server though the hosting control panel.
In order to install WordPress theme to GoDaddy server you should perform the following:
Open GoDaddy hosting control panel and go to Databases -> MySQL
Click on Add a new database
Fill out the Database name and Username, New Password and Confirm Password fields and click Ok. Write down or remember the new database credentials.
Go back to the GoDaddy hosting control panel and open Tools -> File Manager
Go to the WordPress site and download the latest version of the engine https://wordpress.org/download/
Go back to the File Manager and click on the Upload -> Add file button. Choose the downloaded WordPress engine archive and upload it to the server.
Select the uploaded WordPress engine archive and choose the Extract option. After the extracting remove the archive.
If you’d like to host your WordPress site in the root folder you need to move all files from the wordpress subdirectory to the root. In order to do that go to the wordpress subdirectory, select all files and click on Move, choose your root directory and click Ok. The wordpress subdirectory may be deleted afterwards.
Enter your website URL to the browser’s address bar and perform the WordPress engine installation. You’ll need to choose language, fill out the database details form, specify your site’s name, admin name and admin password.
When you’ve finished the WordPress engine installation you need to login to your Dashboard and go to Appearance -> Themes -> Add New -> Upload Theme. Upload, install and activate the CherryFramework (if you theme needs it as its parent theme) and the theme itself.
Install and activate all required plugins.
Import the sample data either via Cherry plugin -> Import Content or manually by uploading the uploads folder to the server and importing the SQL dump file. For more information, please, check other tutorials devoted to these matters.
Your WordPress site is up and running.
