Step 2: Unzip the above archive to a known location on your computer. There’re two items in such archive, including “prestashop” folder for uploading on your web server, and “Install_Prestashop.html” file relating to the detailed Prestashop installation guide.
Notes: After complete installation, it is necessary for you to return to the installation folder to rename the install folder for the effective working of the theme. For instance, we made change through adding the mark _ right at the end of the word install. Moreover, for the admin folder, it is required to change the name of this folder into admincp for easier back-end management. If not do so, there’s a series of characters as below, causing difficulties in managing your backend.
-If you don’t rename the admin folder, you’ll get the backend link as follows:
