Support » Fixing WordPress » Multiple bogs – cannot update template

  • Anonymous

    Hi there.
    I’ve installed two copies of WP into two different directories. Each install has got its own database to write to.
    Everything was works fine except that I can’t update or change the template (index.php) I am getting an error message that I have to make index.php writeable (666) which it is.
    Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

    You are trying to update the wrong index from the one you think you are .


    Still no luck. I did yet another clean install, same result.
    There appear to be two issues:
    1. I can’t update the index.php template. Error code: Needs to be writable e.g. 666. The ‘comments’ template updates with no problem which is really weird.
    Also, when installing WP didn’t guess the install folder, it got stuck on
    I already run another install of WP on the same server (different database, different sub directory) with no issues at all.
    I made sure to go through my permissions, but with no luck.
    Any pointers?

    My host automatically installs WP for us, and in my new install, I get this problem with my template.

    Are ‘Web Address’ and ‘Blog Address’ (Options -> General) set up correctly in both of your blogs?

    Mine’s correct.

    I’m having the same problem updating my template. Permissions are right and I don’t even get any error, it says file updated successfully, but it is not.
    I have to manually upload the index.php via FTP. any help?

    Blog address:
