You should upload the entire folder of your theme to the "themes" directory in the folder that PrestaShop resides in.

Once you have done that, login to the admin area of your shopping cart and go to Preferences -> Appearance. In this menu, select the newly uploaded theme from the list of available themes and press the "Save" button.

This hasn't worked for me...I don't see any new theme in the Appearance section. However, I see the theme folder in /themes directory.

Please help me regarding this matter.
