    Hi

    I ran a scan on our site tabletopstudio.co.uk/Blog and got 32 known threats, running the fix script gave an “Failed:file not writable!” error on all of these files. Any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks

    Mike

    It would seem that there is a permission issue on those files that prevents them from being fixed by any PHP process on your webservers. You could try to change the permissions on those files so that they can be automatically fixed by my plugin.

    If you need more specific guidance then I would need more detailed information about the specific situation on your server. Please feel free to send me screenshots or any other specific info that might help if you need further assistance.

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply. It tried resetting the permissions for the problem files with a 644 permission change via filzila, however for the problem file I got the following

    So You cannot change the file permissions in FileZilla. I’m sorry that your host was not more helpful. You may be able to fix the permissions on these files using your hosting control panel, there is usually some kind of file manager that can change the permissions for you. Otherwise you would have to convince your hosting provider to step up and help you or else move your sites to another host.

    How many sites do you have on this host?
