Path examples

PHP path - the php path is used to load the Wordpress files which contain the functions. The correct path for this will vary from server to server. If your server is cPanel based and Wordpress is installed in root the path would be in the following format:

Remember to replace cpanel_username with your actual cPanel username.

If Wordpress is installed in a sub-directory rather than root you would simply need to add the directory to the end of the path as so:

HTML path - the HTML path is used to load the CSS, images and HTML from Wordpress so the HTML path must be to your Wordpress active theme directory which contains these resources. On the majority of servers this path will be the same, if for example Wordpress is installed in root you would need to use:

Remember to replace theme_name with your actual theme name e.g orbit or slick-host.

If Wordpress is installed in a directory simply add the directory name at the start of the path as so:

6. Go to setup > general settings > activate the WHMCS template

WHMCS template package
Select the Theme name and click save changes

If the paths are correct you'll see the theme matching WordPress. If they aren't you'll see a include PHP error, this means the path is wrong and will need to be corrected.
