I was trying to setup ACF to use local JSON instead of the database. I’ve followed the instructions and I believe I have everything setup correctly. Still, when I add or save an existing ACF group nothing gets written into that folder.
Im using a Genesis child-theme, so my main suspicion is that this feature isn’t compatible with that scenario. Anyone knows this for sure?
Even I face the same problem with Twentysixteen Child theme.
I tried the filters mentioned in https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/local-json/, but this doesn’t solve the problem.
Any help is much appreciated.
Ahh, I figured it out myself. Change the ownership of the
acf-json to www-data:www-data. This solved the problem for me.
If you’re curious,
www-data is a user/group set created specifically for web servers.
