Support » Fixing WordPress » Style.css is not writable. Help please

  • Setup:

    I have installed Apache, Php 5, and mysql on my computer. The setup went well.

    Apache 1.35
    Mysql 5

    I created a virtual host and installed wordpress in the root. This also went well.

    <VirtualHost *:80>
      DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/htdocs/myserverfolder"
     <Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/htdocs/myserverfolder">
        Options FollowSymLinks Indexes
        Allow from all
        Order allow,deny
        AllowOverride All

    WordPress created a .htaccess file in the root of my virtual host:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    The problem is when I change a setting through my wordpress theme panel, I get “Your stylesheet is not writable.” My question is how do I make my style.css file writable? Can someone explain to me whats going on?
