Themes - Unreadable files or directories

I did a clean install on my MacBook Pro and installed a new copied of MAMP. When I go through the configuration setup, it was successful. When I login into the backend to update the themes I get a error message both on htdocs and Dropbox. This is the message Unreadable files or directories: /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/Project_1/themes/four-point-seven/manifest.json. When I go to themes I don’t see the file created.

Can someone please help me or point me in the direction on how to fit it.

Thank you,

Re: Themes - Unreadable files or directories

Is your themes folder permissions set properly? Usually 775 should suffice.

Re: Themes - Unreadable files or directories

Maybe that has something to do with what happened to me:

I wanted to update a page locally (4.6.2 to 4.7.2). Everything seemed to work fine, but when I tried to import or export themes, there was no table to choose from in the backend. Interestingly, the themes were stored in the database.

After a lot of back and forth I happened to find that the collation of the newly created txp_skin table was set to utf8mb4_general_ci, but all other tables were set to utf8_general_ci. I have no idea how this happened (different settings locally and on the production server apparently), but after I changed it everything worked fine.

Re: Themes - Unreadable files or directories

Destry, I’m not often here because most of the time Textpattern does exactly what I want it to do. However, I have been dealing with this problem for so long that I thought the solution might be of interest to someone else. ;-)
