Silverstripe Version: 4.7.3
Summary: When installing a theme via terminal (gitbash) on WAMP (Win10), I often come across an error of missing folder during the exposing web directories step. The error is that a folder is missing and therefore cannot be exposed.
In the example below, I noticed that the composer.json file is asking to expose 5 folders, but the actual installation process only creates 4 of these folders.
As the installation did not create an ‘images’ folder, when the exposing task doesn’t find this folder, it stops the task and the folders below ‘images’ in the list (icons, fonts) are not exposed.
Question: What’s the best way to resolve this issue?
- My immediate thought is to make a copy of the repository, change the composer.json to not expose ‘images’ and install it again. But there must be a cleaver way to resolve it?
- I also tried to (1) manually creating the missing (images) folding, (2) deleting the public/ folder and (3) running variations of ‘Composer update’ or ‘Composer vendor-expose’, in an attempt to expose everything again, but it does expose everything again, except the themes folders.
Thanks for anyone that can help.
I just would like to know the correct, proper way in this case.
