I want to change the folder name of my Sub-directories of CSS file. For Example, currently it is in /pub/static/version1584394723/frontend/MTheme/layout/en_US/calendar.css. But I want to make my Mtheme folder name to be changed to say Ztheme

i.e /pub/static/version1584394723/frontend/**ZTheme**/layout/en_US/calendar.css

I have simply changed the folder name, but that didn't work. Apart from changing folder name, I guess I need to change the href also. But don't know how to do that. Can anyone tell me how to edit href?

    Do you understand how to create a child theme? Ztheme would be a child of Mtheme. Then through backend configure site to use Ztheme. – Dominic Xigen Mar 16 at 23:05

There are some things you must do:

  1. Change the folder name as you did but it's


  1. Change the title of the theme in file theme.xml


  1. Clear cache and static files, folders in


  1. Run 2 command lines :

    php bin/magento setup:upgrade

    php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy ( -f if you are magento 2.2 or later )

  2. Go to backend and change configuration to use the new theme.

  3. Clear cache and refesh your frontend.
