File Structure

The template package you have downloaded consists of several folders. Let's see what each folder contains:

  • Screenshots -contains template screenshot. Not for production.
  • theme -contains wordpress theme files
  • "vw-Cafe-pro.zip" -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 files and create directories on the server, WordPress needs permissions.

  • After that select all folders in root directory and then right click to select ‘File Permissions’.
  • wp-config >> permissions dialog box >> click on checkbox read and write >> Click on the OK button to continue
  • Repeat the same procedure with the wp-content folder
