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!
