No snapshot displayed in drupal

While installing sample data of a specific theme, you may want to select the snapshot and click on Restore button. Sometimes, it may not display any options in the field of snapshot even though it asks   " Which snapshot would you like to restore? " and if you click on restore, you will get an error message " Snapshot field is required ".

The root cause of this error is permissions. It mostly happens in Linux platforms. The solution is nothing but giving full rights.

Just check the permissions on the folder sites/default/private and it's sub folders. Assign 777 i.e.,

Type  sudo chmod 777 /var/www/sitename/sites/default/private/  and hit enter in your terminal.
