How do I edit my theme files in WordPress on BionicWP?

How to edit your theme files in WordPress on BionicWP

Safety First!  Before you update your theme files it’s important to take a backup of your website.


Step 1: Install a file manager plugin (wp-file-manager is the most common)

Step 2: Travel to the left-hand sidebar to locate the plugin

Step 3: Ensure you have the appropriate file permissions set. If you see a note at the bottom of the WordPress editor panel that says “If this file was writable you could edit it…” then you have the right permissions to make the changes.

Step 4: Travel to /wp-admin/admin.php?page=wp_file_manager_root

Step 5: Set the public root path to /srv/htdocs
