"The folder already exists." error while updating the WordPress theme.
I am trying to update my WordPress theme using the Upload theme button at the WordPress dashboard in Appearance -> Themes. I upload the zip file and I get the following message:
Installing the theme ...
The folder already exists. / home / .../ public_html / wp-content / themes / pe-theme-name /
The theme installation has failed.
WordPress can't override theme files using WordPress themes upload functionality. I mean, this issue relates to all WordPress themes, not only PixelEmu themes.
You can remove or override the old theme folder and then replace it with the new one using FTP/SFTP.
Please follow this tutorial How to Update Theme.
