  • The first bug was when I went to import some .xml files into my blog it said a directory could not be made. I noticed it was in the ‘wp-content/uploads’ folder. The next bug is when I went to get the exact message (for the support forums) I saw this message at

    can’t open file

    It looks like it’s something to do with my snowblind theme. Do I need to re-upload that?

    Please reply soon!

  • chmod your /wp-content directory and all uploads folder to 777
    upload an image
    chmod all to 755 for security
    should work from now on

    as for the theme – I would delete it and reload it but set the themes folder to chmod 777 1st

    some reasons for fopen error

    Conflicts with Mod_Security rules
    – Issues with firewall application or other security settings
    – Curlwrapper bug from Cpanel and EasyApache
    – Improper compile options when upgrading PHP
    – Wrong directives or options in PHP.INI
    – Missing files, applications, or some system libraries

    your host may need to look into this


    From your provided error message shows that there is an issue with the theme – snowblind. Please change the theme and have a check with default.

    New installation and tried this theme out. Same error. I will give it a miss for now.
