“Invalid dir permissions” when trying to set it to 777 on SiteGround

Continuing the discussion from Unable to create directory. Is its parent directory writable by the server:

I am getting the same problem but when I try to set permissions to 777 I get “Invalid dir permissions”. I’m hosting with SiteGround.

Hi @hooperman13

When are you getting the error message (adding a site, reconnecting it, etc…), and can you please post the entire error message (feel free to replace any identifiable information)?

Here is the entire error message: Unable to create directory /home/rs10/public_html/c********te.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/mainwp/. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

And here is a video shoing the process Loom | Free Screen & Video Recording Software | Loom

Thanks for the update.

Can you tell us if the child site has been migrated/cloned from a different server recently?

It’s possible that " /home/rs10/public_html/c**" is not the correct path.
