Support » Localhost Installs » “Update Failed: Could not create directory” error, but folders set to 755

    I’m trying to update my plugins, but I’m getting a “Update Failed: Could not create directory” error. My wp-content and plugins folders (including children) are set to 755 permissions. Any ideas for other issues that could cause this?

    I recently upgraded my MacOS to Catalina, if that’s a potential factor.

    It’s possible there are ACL rules set for those directories. Does ls -le show some rules on the wp-content and/or plugins folders?

    Turns out this was a conflict with a WordPress.com VIP plugin. Very anticlimactic.
