Need help installing

I went to Appearance > Install new theme > selected from the zipped file I purchased, and then hit ok. It seems to install, but I do not see the theme showing up in my list of themes. What am I doing wrong? I have rebooted my server and still nothing showing. There are no error messages.

- extract zip file first. 

- point your domain to that new folder

- on browser, input url to continue setting up

If it does not work, you could send us your accounts of Cpanel and server, we would like to help you.

Still isn't working... which file(s) do I upload to the Drupal site? Here is a picture of the extracted files. Can I just drop them onto the server manually? I can terminal into the server no problems...

As we can see from screenshots, you are trying to install theme in local and using OS Ubuntu. You need to install Apache or nginx first (please take a look at

Also, please follow documentation enclosed to downloaded package to install theme. is name of file that you need to extract in folder root.

The terminal is shelled into the remote server, not local (it's a Google Compute Engine). The GCE already installs Apache automatically when you launch the instance, everything is installed automatically. Does the theme not like to be installed in a cloud environment for some reason?

I have the theme uploaded into the /sites/all/themes - but as soon as I enable it and set as default it gets 'stuck' at LOADING...

We go to url and can see you install theme manually but not install profile. Have you checked "Manual install" section in documentation? 

Also, we highly recommend that you should try in local first.

I have done the manual install over and over. By the way there is NO folder name "md_apage" like it says either. 


  1. Browse to the theme's zip file (it is located in the folder you've downloaded from ThemeForest) and extract that file, you will get folder named "md_apage"

  2. Open your FTP program and FTP into your site and navigate to the 



  3. Upload 


     to this directory

  4. Back to your drupal admin toolbar, click Appearance

  5. Find 

    MD chulan

     and click 

    Enable and set default

  6. After that, you need to click 

    theme settings


    Save configuration

     for define some basic settings.


What do you mean install profile?

Sorry for the misspelling. It is md_chulan, not md_apage. You should install profile to get the site exactly looked like our demo.

To install profile, please see the video here

OK, I will get a LAMP stack running and do a profile install of Drupal - I don't have time to do it this week as I have never installed a LAMP stack from the ground up on GCE before, and I know I will run into issues, I will try and do that this weekend and I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks.
