There are two ways to install a UberTheme Magento theme:

  • General Installation: Applicable if you have installed a Magento base on your server before.
  • Quickstart Installation: Applicable if you want to get a whole new site as per Demo.

Decide which way to follow. Once downloaded, unzip the package to get the following folders:

  • mage_ext: contains all built-in extensions of the theme.
  • mage_tpl: contains the theme files only.
  • quickstart: a full Magento CMS version with the theme already integrated to match the demo.
  • source: contains all source files of the theme.

Provided that you have installed the Magento base already, General Installation will help you adapt the theme and its extensions with your current site.

Note: Your store must be ready before the installation. If not, get it done quickly by following the Magento Installation Guide. See also the following docs for general installations and configurations.

For more details, please check the documentation of the specific extension here.
