In the standard Moodle distribution, all themes are placed in the theme/ directory.

More information about the content of a typical theme directory/folder can be found in Theme basics

Change themes default directory for site

The storage location of themes may be altered, using the variable $CFG->themedir. Themes from placed in the directory specified by this variable will then be available for selection using the theme selector.

For example, should you wish to place themes in a subdirectory called 'my_moodle_themes', your 'config.php' file might look like this:

$CFG->wwwroot   = 'http://my.moodle.site.edu';
$CFG->dirroot   = '/var/www/my.moodle.site.edu/public_html';
$CFG->themedir  = $CFG->dirroot . '/my_moodle_themes';

or any place that you have configured to be readable by your web server, for example:

$CFG->wwwroot   = 'http://my.moodle.site.edu';
$CFG->dirroot   = '/var/www/my.moodle.site.edu/public_html';
$CFG->themedir  = '/home/me/my_moodle_themes';
