Cannot Upload Plugin - Keep getting an error

  • Answered
I had a problem with some plugins to my site so I deactivated and deleted them. Now I get an error whenever I I try to upload a plugin. I can install plugins through directly wordpress pluggins in but I cannot upload and install a wordpress plugin.
We have tried resetting all the server permissions and tried to fix any problems in the htaccess file but I still have the same problem.
Hello mark44554, Thank you for your question about uploading plugins. The error indicates a possible permissions error. You mentioned you have already adjusted permissions. That is definitely what I would have suggested. However, in most cases I've seen, there are deeper, nested permissions that have not been adjusted or might be owned by a different user. We have a guide on common WordPress troubleshooting techniques that may be helpful as you're isolating the issue. Best, Christopher M.
