Running sydney pro theme on localhost giving problems


I am running wordpress on tomcat server locally.

I have uploaded the theme and this theme is visible on dashboard->Appearance->Theme.

But when I click on Live Preview of this theme I get following error(as visible from the logs)
“GET /wp-admin/customize.php?theme=sydney-pro-ii&return=http%3A%2F%2Fdomainname%2F
wp-admin%2Fthemes.php HTTP/1.1” 500 1219

And the sydney free theme works fine.

Could you please assist on this issue.


I didn’t notice such error on my local LAMP server. Did you try to actually activate the theme?

Yes, on theme activation I get following error and the wordpress dashboard crashes.

And from access logs I get following
“GET /wp-admin/themes.php?action=activate&stylesheet=sydney-pro-ii&_wpnonce=f66556d1d7 HTTP/1.1” 302 266
“GET /wp-admin/themes.php?activated=true HTTP/1.1” 500 1292

I think there might be issue with the tomcat server that is running wordpress.
