  • I get this error from time to time, never got to the bottom of it. I have a multisite install and believe it’s possibly a cross domain problem, ie working in one domain and an action is required to happen somewhere else. Just thought I’d offer someone for you to look

    Well, I’m not in multi site. It’s my own WP installation.


    I realize this issue was brought up a month ago, yet I see no response to it here. I saw other similar posts, but did not see an answer. But hopefully we can trigger a response here?

    I am logged in as Administrator on my site (I’m the ONLY one who accesses this blog’s back end, so it does not appear to be a User issue) and installed & activated your plugin but I’m getting this message:

    “Multi Plugin Installer 1.2.0
    You do not have sufficient permissions to manage plugins on this blog.”

    I used FTP to check permissions on the plugin, and it’s 755, and it’s the same as all my the plugins. Should it have a higher permissions setting?

    Any other ideas of how to solve this issue?

    Thank You Very Much,

    OKAY, I figured it out. I went via FTP to plugin folder, set it to 777, turned off all the items in iThemes Security Advanced section, and Multi Plugin Installer worked. I returned permissions to 755, and have to go back and turn the Advanced setting in iThemes back on.

    Actually there is a conflict with WP Security Plugin –

    If you go to Security Plugin settings and
    only UNCHECK the option that disables the File Editor
    (Recommended Actions -> WordPress Tweaks -> Disable File Editor)
    the screen loads. Even if I have a hidden backend.

    Hope that helps.

    I wouldn’t really call that a conflict since by design a security plugin is there to help you against malicious changes. There are several security plugins that make this change. It can be an annoying change but a valuable one too.

    Unless the page itself is the result of having edited a file or requiring some permission change related to files, then it is unlikely that it is the only or major culprit.

    It’s good you’ve pointed it out and something to look at in the future, but I’ve been having this problem for YEARS. And touch wood, none recently. It almost ALWAYS is plugin related, and for me it’s never been a security plugin. (I’ve only been using one for less than a year and have had this problem since way before then).
