xampp cannot use wordpress theme images

A localhost WordPress could not display images from the themes folder in Xampp on a Linux Mint system.

Solution: all folders must be owned by the Apache user and group (daemon:daemon), or:

# chown -R daemon:daemon [theWordPressThemenameFolder/]
# chmod -R 777 [theWordPressThemenameFolder/]

However this is only for development purposes. On a server work by these guidelines.

Install themes on WordPress (Xampp on Linux)

Do this:

# cd /opt/lampp/
# sudo chown -R daemon htdocs
# sudo chmod -R g+w htdocs

On Apache the user is called daemon, therefore chown -R daemon htdocs.

Thanx to this post (my solution is for Linux the former was for Mac).

Now you can install whatever themes on the fly from the WordPress Dashboard.

Jquery - run it on localhost

Sometimes Jquery needs to run on a server. The accordion plugin is a sample. If you run the code directly from a directory, the darn thing does not work. If you run the same code on your localserver it works fine.

Below: Jquery from localhost

Ergo: run Jquery scripts on your localhost or on a server.
