OK, I'm pretty sure this is a permissions issue, but I can't figure out which files to change, what I should change them to, and whether it's safe to leave them that way for hacking/security concerns...
I cannot automatically install or upgrade anything. I can't even change header images or anything like that using the backend database with a web browser. It won't even allow plugins or themes to create folders and files.
I use cpanel on my server, and I've done everything I can tell to reduce my firewall.
So far, I've been able to do everything manually (changing header and background images, and editing stylesheets were very interesting...), BUT it's a pain in the a**!
And now I'm having backup issues - it would be so much easier to do this automatically.
So, can somebody help me out here?
