Wordpress permissions issue?

Post by jjensen6823 » 04 Jun 2021, 21:42

I am running a Wordpress site from my F2-220. A few weeks ago, I was able to install and update plugins--now I cannot. When I attempt to install a plugin, I get:

Warning: ftp_mkdir(): /mnt: Permission denied. in /mnt/md0/BackRoomFish/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ftpext.php on line 560

Warning: ftp_delete(): /mnt/md0/BackRoomFish/wp-content/upgrade/navigation-menu-as-dropdown-widget-2: permission denied. in /mnt/md0/BackRoomFish/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ftpext.php on line 393

Everything I have read indicates this is a file permission issue. I have changed the file permissions on the share several times, and it appears to succeed, but the permissions remain unchanged. Furthermore, although the user "admin" has read/write permissions:


TOS still shows the permission as "DENY":


I've tried going in through SSH to change ownership of the folder, but that is also denied.

The strange thing is that if I connect via FTP from my PC, I can create and remove folders in that share without any problem. Can you help?

Hi There,

Here's the process which you can follow & your issue will be resolved. Go to the Cpanel if you have access otherwise you can use an FTP server to access your file manager, Then go to public_HTML folder> WP Content >Plugin folder. After that all you have to do is rename this Folder "Plugin Folder" then all of your site's installed plugins will be deactivated. Remember Again rename your plugin folder into the same name "plugin" Then go to the WordPress CMS again & try to activate every plugin one by one, If any plugin causes any issue while activating it then that plugin should be removed because that's causing an issue. This issue causes due to bad WP plugins, You should always read the compatibility before choosing the best WordPress plugins for your website.
