Support » Fixing WordPress » how to tutorial?

  • Is there a tutorial for this? So far I can’t do anything that even resembles the functions of a website. I mostly get “Ooops Chrome cannot find wp”. Thanks!

  • Do you have WP installed? What’s your site URL?

    Have you seen –

    Hi, my site url is: http://www.jeffs60s.com/wp/wordpress/

    I use core ftp, running windows 7 64-bit.

    I’m hoping I have wp installed. It’s been a real monster to get done. I really know nothing about this, but I’m going to have to learn it very soon. I built this site as a sort of “learn as I go” thing. I get error messages from Chrome and Firefox whenever I try to upload anything. I’ve even dragged photos into the ftp, but they don’t show up when I try to upload from there. If I have access to my admin dashboard, does that mean it’s installed? How will I know? Thnanks!

    Looks like it’s installed, yes. Try logging in here:

    If you can’t upload anything in the Dashboard (not FTP), have you checked the file permissions on the server?

    My file permissions are at 755. Should they be 744?

    Files or folders? Files should be 644. Folders should be 755.

    The folders are at 755. what files need to be set? Is there a certain file in each directory?

    Files should be 644.

    What I mean, is there a certain single file, ie “congig.php” in each directory, or is it all of the files in each directory? They’re mostly all set to 644.

    A single file for what? All files should be 644.

    When I set up an online store, a certain file in each directory needed to be changed to 644. If I open a directory in wordpress, there are many files. Would I have to open each one and change each permission level? there is a config file with permission at 666. I would have to open every file in every directory to see if if has the right permission? I wanted to do wordpress because it was supposed to be easy for the average user.

    Which ecommerce plugin are you using?

    I’m sorry, I was referring to a different db when I mentioned the online store, the store has nothing to do with what I’m doing with wordpress. I figured out the permissions level, so I’m good there now. Still, nothing works. I can’t make any changes to a theme. I’m using theme twenty-seven, and I deleted all the images out of the folder because I didn’t want to use them. Next, I replaced them with one image-in the same exact folder. Now, nothing works.

    Ooops, correction: I’m using twenty eleven theme.

    I can’t make any changes to a theme.

    You need to change the permissions on the files in just that theme’s folder to to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777.

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes.
