Ok, I had the same issue and it started from the FTP prompt when trying to delete a theme. // Note I am doing this on my local environment, not a production site
1st step was to add
Which then started the Deletion failed: The requested theme does not exist error
But this is how to solve the whole issue altogether and you don't need the code
You need to edit the
httpd.conf file depending on your setup. Here is how I did it using xampp edit /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf
# If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run
# httpd as root initially and it will switch.
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
# It is usually good practice to create a dedicated user and group for
# running httpd, as with most system services.
User nobody add your username there example
User myuser and restart apache and boom! Hope this helps someone out there with an issue that was taking me hours and a lot of headaches.
