    In the dashboard I have this message come up...

    WP Widget Cache not work!
    '/home/cleanmyc/public_html/wp-content/widget-cache' is not writable, please check '/home/cleanmyc/public_html/wp-content/widget-cache' permissions, and give your web server the permission to create directory and file.

    I went to widget-cache in my ftp and it says "Empty directory listing"

    Can anyone help me please?

    Thanks doug

    chmod this folder to 777
    /widget-cache
    do your operation
    chmod back to 755
    should work fine from now on

    thanks sam -

    I changed it to 777

    I don't know what my operation was supposed to be - just to get rid of the error.

    It went back to 755 automatically

    Status: Directory listing successful
    Status: Set permissions of '/wp-content/widget-cache' to '755'
    Command: CWD /wp-content
    Response: 250 OK. Current directory is /wp-content
    Command: SITE CHMOD 755 widget-cache
    Response: 200 Permissions changed on widget-cache

    Some of this stuff is totally beyond me.

    The whole blog has a database error.

    I have spent two hours on it and getting nowhere.

    Thanks anyway...

    I have no idea. I tried to transfer the blog from http://www.dougkercher.com/mdc to http://www.cleanmyclothes.com.au

    I have followed the advice gien to me changing the phpmyadmin file and the wp-config files but it's not going too well.

    I'm a bit out of my depth...

    Thanks sam (my son is called sam)

    hi sam, thanks mate.

    i have done step 1 - downloaded the files via ftp from the original site

    cant do step - got admin and settings to change url as i cant get to it anymore.

    its 2.30 am here so i have to go to bed.

    I might just upload a new blog and copy the pages over from the wp-admin i can open.

    Its gonna take a few hours but i am getting nowhere.

    Thanks Doug
