    Dear Word Press Support ,

    I found an error in my site heath , There is a critical issue with Word Press update :
    Background updates ensure that WordPress can auto-update if a security update is released for the version you are currently using .
    Some files are not writable by WordPress :
    xmlrpc.php

    https://prntscr.com/uost7v
    As I checked , I can ‘ t access to this file even in my host .
    https://prntscr.com/upgb6y

    If is possible , Please help me to solve this issue .

    Best regards ,
    AZAD

    Are you using a plugin that disables XML-RPC? Can you fix the permissions via your hosting control panel?

    Dear Steven Stern (sterndata) (@sterndata) ,

    Thanks for your response .

    Are you using a plugin that disables XML-RPC?

    My plugins are the same plugins that I were using them before this error and I haven ‘ t install any new plugin recently . Do you mean some plugins change this permission ? If yes can you tell me about ?

    Can you fix the permissions via your hosting control panel ?

    I use Shared Hosting and I have access it via my hosting control panel , Please you tell what permissions I need via my hosting control panel to solve this issue and what should I do ?

    Best regards ,
    AZAD

    The permissions on that file should be 664.

    Dear Steven Stern (sterndata) (@sterndata) ,

    Thanks for your response .

    The permissions on XML-RPC file should be 664 or 644 ?
    What about correct permissions on wp-config file ?

    And if is possible please let me know how to change permissions ?

    Best regards ,

    all files should be 664, directories 775. Please ask your host if you need help using their control panel.
