    I just have WordPress on XAMPP but I can’t download new themes, plugins and photos it said : “Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2018/05″. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”
    Thank you

  • If you work on a Mac localhost a quick and somewhat dirty fix is to give “777” (read, write, execute) permissions to the wp-content folder. Check the folder permissions.

    Please give ‘644’ permissions to file and ‘755’ to folders and check again.

    Thank you very match, but I’am not really good in coding so can you please give me instructions step by step

    Access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these).

    Go to your WordPress installation folder. and right click on the wp-content folder select ‘File Permissions’ and set the numeric value to ‘755’ or ‘777’ and test.
