AutoBlog Error "Wrong Permissions"

I am having issues with Autoblog. When I try to install it on this client’s site I am receiving the following error: “Installation of Autoblog failed. Most likely reason for this are wrong folder permissions of your wp-contents folder.”

Is there a specific permission it needs to be set to? What’s odd is we have set this up on every other client’s site with no issue.

    Hello Matt,

    That error shows usually when FTP credentials are required for installing plugins (and themes and updates). That is dependent on server configuration.

    Can be changed by putting your FTP credentials directly in wp-config.php

    define( 'FTP_USER', 'username' );
    define( 'FTP_PASS', 'password' );
    define( 'FTP_HOST', '' );

    before line /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Try this and let me know if this will help.

    kind regards,
