Server Requirements are very critical in order to seamlessly upload the theme and import the demo data.
Below is the list of configuration parameters of php.ini file that should be verified before installing the theme. 

How can this be checked? 

1. You can check this in the php.ini file on your server and modify them as necessary. If you are not familiar with modifying this, you can reach out to your server hosting provider
who should be able to configure this for you.
2. You can install and activate a plugin called WP System Information. On activating the plugin, the PHP Info can be found by navigating to Tools > System Info. You can then
reach out to your server hosting provider who should be able to configure/modify this if required.

Install theme

After you download the package from ThemeForest, unzip it. You'll see a file in the theme folder, which is the main file that needed to upload and install. You can either
choose to upload and install the theme using WordPress theme install or use FTP function.

Install theme using WordPress install function

Upload and install using FTP

If you get any fail when installing the theme by Wordpress install function, we recommend to use FTP:

You must install all Required Plugins one by one or using bulk action.
You may install recommended plugins as you require. But in order to correctly view the demo contents, you're required to install recommended plugins. 
Note: We include two-page builder component to make it easy to your needs. If you are familiar with WP Bakery Page builder
then Install WP bakery Page Builder, But we recommended use elementor as a page builder at your website.
Also, we have pre-made Gutenberg blocks which give you to third-party plugin free websites. So decide yourself how you want to go?
Then choose any page builder between elementor or WP Bakery or without any third part page builder.
Your Theme is now ready to use.

Tell WordPress which language file to use.

If you don’t use WordPress in your native language so far, you have to tell WordPress which language to use to activate the theme translation.

You can do this by editing the wp-config.php file (the file is located in the main directory of your WordPress files) and defining the WPLANG constant. You have to set your language code there, for example, fr_FR for the French translation.

just add the line below to your wp-config.php or change it if it already exists:

define ('WPLANG', 'fr_FR');

First Method: Using Loco Translate Plugin

The easiest way to translate your theme locally is by using the Loco Translate plugin. After you have installed and activated the plugin, simply Go to Loco Translate > Home in the left-hand menu to start translating. You can get some guideline beginners here

Second Method: Using Poedit

Poedit is a common program which you can use to translate the theme. It’s available for free on After you have installed Poedit, you can open it and select File > New Catalog from POT file.
Then select the .pot file from the theme you wish to translate which you can find in the /languages/ folder of theme. Then go through every line of text and translate it to your native language.
Afterward, you can save the catalog with your language code (for example es_ES.po). Normally Poedit automatically creates the .mo file and saves it,
too. The last step you have to do is to upload your created language files to the language folder of your theme using FTP.

I've used the following images, icons or other files as listed.
