sierracircle March 6, 2015 Answer helped me to fix the issue. Thanks a lot.

The codes are: sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www sudo usermod -aG www-data robin sudo chmod -R 774 /var/www

I have run these codes on putty. But no use.

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/ sudo chmod -R -c 755 /var/www/ sudo chmod -R -c 775 /var/www/WORDPRESS/wp-contents/

3 days back it was working fine. But not now. I don’t understand why it suddenly happened.
