1. Download and unzip the WordPress package if you haven't already.
2. Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL (or MariaDB) user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
3. (Optional) Find and rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php, then edit the file (see Editing wp-config.php) and add your database information.
4. Upload the WordPress files to the desired location on your web server:
If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (excluding the WordPress directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your website (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), create the blog directory on your server and upload the contents of the unzipped WordPress package to the directory via FTP.
Note: If your FTP client has an option to convert file names to lower case, make sure it's disabled.
5. Run the WordPress installation script by accessing the URL in a web browser. This should be the URL where you uploaded the WordPress files.
If you installed WordPress in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/
If you installed WordPress in its own subdirectory called blog, for example, you should visit: http://example.com/blog/
The first option on how to install this Theme would be to directly upload the iBid.zip file via WordPress Theme Uploader.
Log into your WordPress dashboard
Navigate to Appearance > Themes
Click Install Themes
Now you just need to find the "iBid.zip" file in the Upload folder and hit Install now.

Theme Installation via FTP
The second option on how to install our Theme would be the upload via FTP manager. It really doesn't matter which of the two ways you choose, just choose the one you feel more comfortable with.
Login to your FTP account and navigate to your WordPress Installation directory
Navigate to the folder /wp-content/themes/
Upload the "iBid" folder (not the .zip-file). This is the folder located inside the "Upload" folder in the zip-file you've downloaded from Themeforest.
Now log into your WordPress backend
Navigate to Appearance > Themes
Find the Theme and click Activate
