Unable to set filesystem credentials

Recommended Posts


I keep getting this message on my dashboard in Google Chrome.




It appears your WordPress install can't write to your servers file system. This may adversely affect your sites performance. Check with your host about resolving this issue.

Unable to set filesystem credentials



I actually can not even use the pagebuilder. The buttons are there but they won't let me access them.

Hi there,


In reference to the error message please see the following thread where our Developer addresses this and advises what steps to take with the host - http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/30924-updated-then-got-cant-write-to-your-servers-file-system/page-3


If you're unable to use the editor panel at all, this is usually a plugin related issue. As the editor is jquery based, another piece of third party code or a script is conflicting. Usually disabling all plugins will resolve this, then switching each one on one by one to determine which one is causing the issue with the editor.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
