WordPress plugin install --> can't create directory
I'm new to Linode and I'm picking up on some work that was not completed and I'm inheriting some of the issues. Here's the immediate problem: I cannot install any plugin on a WordPress site that has about 50 plugins already installed. When I try to install the plugin I get the message "cannot create directory" and the plugin install fails. I would think that it's a permissions issue but permissions look good. 755 on the directories. That's assuming the installation goes into wp-content/plugins. Maybe it goes somewhere else for the install?
Any suggestions as to where to find additional support docs or videos would be welcomed. So far they have been helpful. I've got a ways to go before I get this hosting platform understood.
Are you out of disk space maybe?
ummm….yea. Forgot about that possibility. I'm just starting on this site. I don't let my sites get full.
publichtml is an adduser(1) template from /etc/skel, and is served via modpublic. It's never a good idea outside of multiple tenant as in e.g. academia.
Liberal use of 777 is cretinous.
I would call this documentation a "spec". This and all the rest of it. Please update it if it's not accurate.
If there's something wrong with them, save support some time and just open an issue on the public repo for them:
