Please note:


The guide below uses the 777 permission merely as an example. In most circumstances, using 777 is excessive and is a sign of a problem with your server's configuration - in this case we'd advise you to contact your hosting provider.


In general, we'd advise you to try setting the permissions to 644 or 755 and only use 777 if neither of these work.



To change permissions, you can use a FTP program like FileZilla or you can even use File Manager from your cPanel.

We would recommend you use FileZilla to do this task. Changing the permissions is very easy.

First, make sure that you have an FTP account. If you don't have one - create an FTP account from cPanel.

Now, login via FTP using FileZilla and navigate to public_html/wp-content/themes/themename/

Right click on the cache/ folder (in the root directory of the theme) and select Permissions from the context menu.. Type 777 in the "Numeric Value" field and click on Recurse into subdirectories. Choose Apply to all files and directories. Finally click on OK.
