File Structure

The template bundle that you downloaded is divided into various directories. Let's examine the contents of each folder:

    Screenshots -contains a screenshot of a template. Not for manufacture.
  • theme -contains files for the WordPress theme
  • "vw-artist-pro-zip" -All the files required for the theme are contained in this folder.
  • "license.txt" -includes licence information
  • "readme.txt" -provide details on the theme's image paths, font usage, and script usage.

My website was operating normally before? Who altered the permissions on the file?

WordPress may be unable to create directories, upload photos, or execute some scripts if file permissions are set incorrectly.

To manage files and create directories on the server, WordPress needs permissions.

  • Then, after selecting every folder in the root directory, use the right-click menu to choose File Permissions’.
  • the permissions dialogue box in wp-config >> select the Read and Write checkbox >> select the Continue button.
  • Repeat the same procedure with the wp-content folder.
