    Hi All,
    I'm relatively new to WordPress and have been building my company website over this past week. All was well until tonight when I now get the message:
    "A file permissions error has occurred. Please check the permissions on the script and the directory it is in and try again."

    Can someone kindly point me in the right direction to correcting this?
    Thanks in advance

    Is there any further information in the error message? On what page does it appear in the Admin area? Have you installed any new plugins recently or changed/amended your theme?

    Hi there,

    I haven't changed any coding on the site and this message is what is on the screen. The site is http://www.thepromotergroup.co.uk and the only thing I've done tonight was go to my Service Provider to submit the site to Google which I thought would just add another file to the main directory.

    I can now access my Dashboard and login but wonder what file may be changed to do this.

    Thanks for the reply!

    It now seems to be working! Sorry if I've wasted any of your time but it is nice to know there are friends out there to help at such short notice!

    Regards!

    Sounds like it was a server issue - which would explain the rather vague error message. Glad to hear that it's back up and running again. :-)
