Required File Permissions Missing – Starter Templates

While importing Starter Templates, does the popup says – “Required File Permissions Missing“. If yes, here’s why and how you can clear it.


Importing a template requires some file permissions on your website. So that imported data can be arranged and displayed properly.

In case the plugin does not find valid file permission you will see a popup with this notice.

How to Clear?

You can clear this by simply adding the constant in your wp-config.php file.

define( 'FS_METHOD', 'direct' );

Save the file and refresh the Starter Templates interface on the frontend. Try importing the template again.
