[resolved] getting "permission denied" when I try to upload a new theme (3 posts)

    I want to use a different theme on my newly installed blog, but keep getting a "permission denied" when I upload the files. I have tried using both ftp and the web interface module with the same results.

    I've checked the permissions on the folders and they are all set to 777 which should allow me to upload the new them to the themes folder.

    What can I do?

    Thanks!

    "web interface module"? What version of WordPress is that in?

    If you're using an FTP client and still getting permission denied after properly authenticating to the server, you'll want to contact your host's support group. That's beyond being a WP problem.

    Thanks - I've done that too.

    However, I can upload anywhere else on my website except to the WP folders.
