    From nothing at all my website suddenly gives me an error (see below)

    Warning: include(/home/**/public_html/wp-content/themes/Avada/functions.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/**/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 426

    Warning: include(): Failed opening ‘/home/**/public_html/wp-content/themes/Avada/functions.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/opt/alt/php72/usr/share/pear’) in /home/**/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 426

    After doing some research, the Functions.php file was edited ten hours ago, while the rest of the files in the folder was edited when I updated Avada a few days ago. Now I can’t do anything with Functions.php – I can’t edit permissions, I can’t delete it, I can’t copy it. Nothing…

    Any ideas?

    Hi @troillan

    Permissions issues with regard to files and folders on your server is something that you need to check with your hosting provider. Also, to clarify, a theme update does not and cannot touch/edit/change any WordPress core files (or the database), this is not how updates work.

    A theme update simply replaces the Avada folder (inside of the /themes/) folder and the Fusion Builder / Fusion Core folders (inside of the /plugins/) folder of your install.
