How to change WP file permissions (Unable to update theme due to "permission denied")
I am trying to update my Genesis theme but I keep getting an error about "inconsistent permissions". So I tried to change permission for themes in my wp-content directory from 644 to 755, but it gives me the following error:
"Failure to write attributes of...
Permission denied. Please contact your hosting service provider"
I know I have to change user permission somehow, but I am not that server savvy to know what to do.
Now, I have updated themes and plugins before many times, but never had this issue. And I know I haven't changed anything recently (except switching to HTTPS from HTTP), so I am lost as to what the issue is.
I would appreciate any help.
Thanks very much in advance.
