[resolved] Can't upload translations to 'languages' directory (2 posts)

    I want to upload the translation files (.po and .mo) I created with PoEdit to wp-content/plugins/business-directory-plugin/languages via FTP (FileZilla).

    The server won't let me - I get 550 WPBDM-he_IL.po: Permission denied.

    I tried changing the file permissions for that directory, but I get 550 CHMOD 777 languages: Operation not permitted.

    I thought this is a server issue, but this doesn't happen with any other WP plugin I use.

    How can I upload the translations?

    Hi yaniv691,

    This is something you'll need to contact your web hosting company about. BD won't prevent uploads to this directory as we are not in control of it, only your operating system is. The error you mention above does look like a permission issue, but it appears that you're not allowed to change those permissions however you're trying to do it.

    Your web host company may be able to shed some light on why.
