File Structure

  • "vw-boat-rental-pro" -this folder contains all the necessary files for the theme.
  • "license.txt" -contains license details
  • "readme.txt" -contain information about theme images path, font use and usage script

My site was working fine before? Who changed the File Permissions?

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

To manage documents and establish directories on the server, WordPress needs permissions..

  • Then, choose "File Permissions" from the context menu when you right-click on all of the folders in the root directory.
  • wp-config >> permissions dialog box >> click on checkbox read and write >> Click on the OK button to continue
  • The similar procedure was repeated for the wp-content folder during the installation of the template.
