Install via Control Panel

If you use a hosting control panel (eg: cPanel), navigate to the themes directory of your user account using the File Manager. This is usually /home/username/public_html/wp-content/themes/, or similar, on linux.

Upload betta.zip and betta-child.zip to this directory and unzip both. Delete betta.zip and betta-child.zip (or move them from the themes directory) after unzipping.

Visit your WordPress admin area and activate Betta Child.
