Published: Tue 05 March 2019

If you encounter this issue after ftp connections working fine, you need to add following code into ​wp-config.php

[code lang=text]

if(is_admin()) { add_filter('filesystem_method', create_function('$a', 'return "direct";' )); define( 'FS_CHMOD_DIR', 0751 ); }

Give appropriate permission to apache24 root folders and its subfolders by executing chown -R www:www /usr/local/www/apache24/data
