    Introduction

    We appreciate you purchasing our WordPress theme. This article demonstrates in several sections the entire process for configuring and managing a WordPress website from scratch.

    What is WordPress CMS?

    WordPress is an open source website creation tool that uses PHP and MySQL as its foundation. It is a powerful blogging platform and a completely free content management system (CMS). Using this CMS, you may create reliable online applications and websites. To manage it, you scarcely need any technological expertise or understanding. Because of its many benefits, including ease of use and flexibility, WordPress has emerged as the most popular website construction tool on the market. Learn More

    What is a Wordpress Template?

    A WordPress template serves as the skin for websites built using the WordPress content management system. A WordPress template is incredibly simple to setup. You may very easily change the appearance of your WordPress website with the aid of a newly installed template. A WordPress template comes with all the necessary source files, and you are free to change and expand it however you see fit.

    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-life-coach-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 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, choose "File Permissions" from the context menu when you right-click on all of the folders in the root directory.
    • the permissions dialogue box in wp-config tick the box next to "Read and Write" >> To repeat the process for the wp-content folder, click the OK button to continue.
    • same process repeated for wp-content folder
