I get this error when I try to install W3 Total Cache. I installed it on 2 other websites with no issues, so not sure why this one is causing me problems
This is the message:
FTP credentials don’t allow to write to file /home/(name taken out)/public_html/(name taken out) /wp-config.php
W3 Total Cache Error: Files and directories could not be automatically created to complete the installation.
Please execute commands manually
or use FTP form to allow W3 Total Cache make it automatically.
It says to add these lines
/** Enable W3 Total Cache */
define(‘WP_CACHE’, true); // Added by W3 Total Cache
I can find the config file, but it says if I do anything wrong I’ll wreck the site. Not excited to give that a shot. Is there some permission I can turn on or off to let the plugin install completely by itself?
If I absolutely must add those lines myself, where am I adding them? beginning, end..???
Please tell me there is an easier, safer, way to do this.
I had file writing permissions turned off. I turned it back on (or unchecked it) installed W3, it installed fine. I configured it and then turned writing permissions back off again. Seems to be working.
