STICKY: Installing Drupal - README

Installing Modules and Themes

themes not recognised

I Have just installed my first Drupal site ever (version 8.2.1) following a manual procedure.
I'm on a shared server.
The problem is that themes are not recognised at all.
I have checked file permissions and they look OK.
Also, It seems strange that I cannot deactivate modules in the admin panel.
The site now looks like this.
Pls help me check what can be the reason.

Is there a sample or demo data for D7 or D8?

Hello, forgive me for asking something silly. I seem to remember installing Drupal with some sample data or demo data which contained some content, menus etc. but cannot find anything at all like that.

I have no issues installing D7 or D8, but it then has nothing to show. I purchased a template and it needs to have the sample data before installing and cannot figure it out.

Any ideas or pointers will be appreciated.

I have a website in drupal 6.28. The owner of the website doesn't want to upgrade it. I am changing its hosting to another server. I have tried several times but when i type database name and username, password and click the button it wont generate any error and just refresh the page. The database name, username and password are empty. I repeat the process but again it refresh the page and there is no error.
Can anybody tell me what is the problem and what can be the solution.
