File Structure

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

  • Screenshots -contains template screenshot. Not for production.
  • theme -contains wordpress theme files
  • "vw-Consulting-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.

  • 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
  • same process repeated for wp-content folder
