Wordpress Themes Not Showing Up After FTP (LAMP, Ubuntu, Wordpress, Filezilla SFTP)
Hey all! Thanks for any time you take to help me.
Everything is running smoothly, except when trying to upload themes.
I am using Filezilla’s SFTP which as been successfully configured and connected to my server without a problem. I have tried to install three different themes, all with the same result.
When I upload themes via Filezilla SFTP, they successfully upload into my server’s “
~/wp-content/themes” folder. However, when I try to access them via my WP Admin panel, they simply do not appear.
I am thinking this may be a permissions problem, as the default WP 2014, 2015, and 2016 themes work fine, and can be changed without an issue. That said, my main (non-root) user account should have all permissions necessary.
Does anyone have any advice on how to resolve this issue? Thank you!
