In this article, I’ll share easy ways to install the Magento Theme manually. Before we start, let me first guide you through the folder structure which is required to install a new theme template.
Folder structure of Magento
(local & community directory to upload custom module)
Custom theme template (.phtml files)
(xml files to activate the modules)
(language translation & emails related template directory)
(admin panel css & image directory)
Custom theme template (.css files)
Note: Two folders app & skin are always included in all Magento themes. Besides, /js folder might or might not be present in all the themes.

Step 1. Upload your app & skin folder of the theme to the corresponding Magento folder.
Note: Don't override the main folder (app & skin) especially when you are transferring files & directories using FTP. Upload each sub-folder to the corresponding Magento subfolder.
Step 2. You can set your theme name under frontend folder. Let suppose your package & theme name is pankaj & orange respectively.
Path: app -> design -> frontend -> pankaj -> orange (this folder contain .phtml file)
Path: skin -> frontend -> pankaj -> orange (this folder contain css related sub folders & files.)
After that, login to admin panel goto System ->Configuration->general->Design & set the package name of your theme.
See the below image.
Step 3: Upload your comPany logo using FTP.
Path: skin ->frontend -> pankaj -> orange -> images -> logo.png
Step 4: Set the other settings under design tab like copyright, upload favicon etc. through the Magento admin.
Path: system -> configuration -> general -> design -> header.
Step 5: Finally, you are required to clear your Magento cache using admin panel to see the changes in the front-end.
Path: system -> cache management.
