Can't write Style-custome.css

December 26, 2013 2.9k views
I upgraded to WordPress 3.8. Looking around I opened "Apearance --> Customize" and then hit "Close" without making any changes. Now I get the following... (Website is down) {"success":"-1","alert":"Cannot write style-custom.css file, you may try setting the style-custom.css file permission to 755 or 777 to solved this. ( If file does not exists, you have to create it yourself )"} I didn't want to make any changes. I can't find the "Style-custom.css" file to change ownership. Has anyone else had this problem?

I created the custom-style.css in the var/www/wp-content/css directory and gave it 777.

I then rebooted the server.

Website is still down. When I try to access; nameofsite.com or nameofsite.com/wp-admin I still get the same error as above.

I found that I have four themes listed in /var/www/wp-content/themes

1) bluediamond-v 1_05 (This is the only one that has the "style-custom.css" file
2) twentyfourteen
3) twentythirteen
4) twentytwelve

I still can't access wp-admin or the website - I get the same alert as in my first post
"I created the custom-style.css in the var/www/wp-content/css directory..."

Why did you do that? A standard WordPress install does not have a ./wp-content/css/ directory.
