How to change Permission in cPanel to edit files by Theme Editor

To make any change in a website Control Panel or c Panel is the best medium. Some Blogger uses Filezilla or other FTP software. You may also use it. But in both ways you will need to change permission first. So At first I am trying to make you understand how to change permission in c Panel.

1st Process

  2. Now click file manager.

  4. Many options will be opened below this public_html. But you have to touch only wp-content. Click on wp-content.
  5. Below wp-content some options like Plugin, Theme, and image will appear. Now click on Theme.
  6. Two options below this is present – Theme name and image. Click on theme Name whatever the name of your theme.
  7. Now see on the right side of your File manager. Many files with .php and some others files will be appeared.  select all files having .php. Click right on selected items.
