Hi @kradle,

Looking more into the issue, there are a couple of suggestions. First is to update your theme and plugins to the latest possible. If this doesn’t work, I’ll suggest turning your attention to your website’s Permissions and Ownership.

First, I’ll recommend trying to fix your permissions, most probably, each directory needs to have 755 permissions and each file 644. Try with that.

You can try and use the following command:

find /path/to/app -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \; 
find /path/to/app -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Remember to change /path/to/app with the actual path to your website.

If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to change the ownership of the files. Let me know which WebService you are running so that I can further help out.
