[resolved] [Plugin: Global Translator] Plese make writable and readable error (4 posts)

    I got this error:

    Unable to complete Global Translator initialization. Plese make writable and readable the following directory:

    * /var/www/vhosts/xxx.com/httpdocs/wp-content

    I don't think it's a good idea to make the whole wp-content file writable.

    How to fix this error?

    you dont have to to have set wp-content to 777
    just do a chmod 755 to wp-content &
    chmod 755 html or what ever you web dir is called

    & i like to make my gt-cache 777 just to be sure the Translator is not going to b-itch at me
    but you may not have the gt-cache in wp-content for the fact it cant make one

    Thanks guys, my side got hacked. Someone scanned my side for writable folders, placed a php file in the gt-cache, uploaded an image with a virus in my media folder.

    Never, never will I chmod a folder to 777.

    So, question, how to use global translator with max chmod 755?
