Support » Plugin: Heroic Favicon Generator » could not copy favicon to root

  • Resolved StudioKaufman


    -installed Heroic…no prob.
    -uploaded image to Media Library…no prob.
    -selected image from Library from Heroic Favicon Generator page…no prob
    …until it finished generating all the favicon image–no prob with the favicon images
    BUT message at top of screen says “could not copy favicon to root “

    Went to view site and View Source. this is in the default file:

    <!– FAVHERO FAVICON START –><link rel=”apple-touch-icon-precomposed” href=><meta name=”msapplication-TileColor” content=”#FFFFFF”><meta name=”msapplication-TileImage” content=””&gt;

    And I can view the image content link rel=”…

    BUT no favicon shows up anywhere. Have cleared caches, and even used browsers I never use…and no favicon anywhere.

    Do I need to manually FTP the favicon images to the root? If so, what “root” do you want?
    All my wp files are in

    Why the “could not copy favicon to root” message? It seems that if you have an error message response already set for this condition there should be an FAQ answer for it.

    Hi Dan,

    Sounds like it could be a permissions issue. The root the base of your WordPress installation, where the wp-config.php is located. You could just manually copy the .icos here if you wish.

    The bug with the missing quotes has been fixed for version 1.4.2, which is the latest version.

    Hope that helps.

    All the best,
