Support » Fixing WordPress » Upgrades with Network Solutions hosting: SOLVED

  • Just thought I’d pass along the answer to a problem I’ve been working on ALL day long.

    Hosting: Network Solutions
    Default WP Install w/ “one-click”: 2.9.2 (same w/ 3.0.1 upgrade)
    Problem: Cannot upgrade themes or plug-ins

      Login to your Network Solutions account
      Select the hosting product you have WP on
      Click the <Manage> button (for Hosting control panel)
      Click FTP Content / Publishing
      Click Reset File Permissions (bottom left icon)
      Follow prompts

    Seems the problem with theme and plug-in upgrades is related to FTP file permissions, which cannot be changed using an FTP client or overridden w/ the WP-config file. (At least I couldn’t get either method to work.) However, once the proper change is made within your NetSol hosting account, you should be good to go.

    This worked for me – your mileage may vary – hope it helps…

  • Thanks for this, however, when I clicked on the FTP file permissions icon, my session timed out and I was kicked off the page. Happened each and every time!

    I’ve sent them an email, but will call them in the morning.



    Thank you so much!!

    I’ve been fighting with this for two days…finally it works and I am thrilled. And I would have never thought of this solution on my own.

    +1 🙂

    Slightly different problem but same solution.

    I was trying to upgrade a site WP to the latest version and was repeatedly told it couldn’t connect to the site. It appears the message is wrong – could connect, but not access files.

    Thanks for sharing !
