    I have searched and cannot find the answer to this, and it is extremely odd.

    I am trying to install WordPress for a client and I continuously get this error: wordpress directory not writable by server.. But here is the odd part, I multiple other cpanel account on the same server running WordPress with the exact same permissions?

    Help Please?

    Hi,

    How exactly are you trying to install wordpress? could you please share the permissions of the installation directory and the PHP handler on the server?

    Hello :)

    Please check the ownership/permission values on the public_html directory of this account. EX:

    Code:
    # stat /home/username/public_html
    Thank you.
