Access Denied - After 2.7 Upgrade (7 posts)

    I attempted to upgrade to WP 2.7. Now, I can't log into my WP dashboard. I get this error message:

    Warning: require_once(/home/u3/w39eo56gk8/illuminodyssey.com/html/wp-config.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/u3/w39eo56gk8/illuminodyssey.com/html/wp-load.php on line 27

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/u3/w39eo56gk8/illuminodyssey.com/html/wp-config.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/share/pear') in /home/u3/w39eo56gk8/illuminodyssey.com/html/wp-load.php on line 27

    Naturally, I also get an error message when I try to view my blog at IlluminOdyssey.

    Oddly, I also cannot view any php files in my html directory. I get this message:

    550 wp-config.php: Permission denied : /illuminodyssey.com/html/wp-config.php

    Any ideas?

  2. What's the permissions on your wp-config.php file? 644? It needs to be readable, at least.

    Thanks for the reply. I don't know how to check the permission status. Is this something you can explain?

    You can usually see file permissions in your FTP client. If you're using a graphical one like FileZilla, try right-clicking on a file and selecting "File Permissions" or "File Attributes." See this page for more information. I would suggest changing it to 755.

    If it's not an issue with file permissions, then I don't know whether I can help you. I'm having problems with 2.7 as well.

    I'm having the same issue. I have a clean install of WP and I'm getting the same error. This hasn't happened on any of my other WP installs, only the new one which is 2.7.

    I know WP is supposed to be easy and I shouldn't have to change permissions (chmod) any files out of the gates. Has anyone found a solution to this?

    I am having exactly the same thing. I have a fresh install for first time in my University's server. They ve got Php, MySql and stuffs.

    After I have installed it, the error message shows like permission denied to open wp-load.php.

    I did the exactly same steps at my home and it works fine. But I am using XAMPP at home.

    I totally have no clue on this. Any ideas to fix it?
