I have been using the BackUpWordPress plugin on our WordPress site successfully for some time before migrating to GoDaddy this week.
I followed the WordPress migration instructions and everything else seems to be working fine, with the exception of this plugin.
I am presented with this error/instruction in WordPress Admin:
BackUpWordPress is almost ready. The backups directory can’t be created because your wp-content directory isn’t writable, run chown test3501:inetuser /home/goingove/public_html/wp-content/uploads or chmod 777 /home/goingove/public_html/wp-content/uploads or create the folder yourself.
I have changed the permissions to wp_content/uploads via Filezilla but it has made no difference.
I have deactivated/reactivated the plugin and deleted/re-installed it, neither of which makes any difference.
I have asked GoDaddy support to help with this but they said they don’t support third party applications.
I have posted the problem on WordPress Forum, who said to set the chmods to 777 for the wp_content/uploads directory. and that it is only a folder permission problem. no big deal 🙂
I have checked the permissions and they are set to 777 as recommended. I even deleted the uploads folder and recreated it.
