    "Could not create directory" when try install wordpress theme.

    When installing a wordpress theme I get a message "Could not create directory":

    Installing Theme: Responsive 1.9.3.5

    Downloading install package from http://wordpress.org/themes/download...e.1.9.3.5.zip…

    Unpacking the package…

    Could not create directory. /srv/www/wp-content/mysite.com/upgrade

    Re: "Could not create directory" when try install wordpress theme.

    I've seen similar messages before on Wordpress sites I've run: they usually mean that Wordpress needs write permissions on the folder where it's putting the files.

    By the way, did you reinstall Wordpress after asking the question in your other thread, or is this a fresh install in another location?

    Re: "Could not create directory" when try install wordpress theme.

    I uninstalled and re-installed many times, just trying to get beyond an ftp credentials issue.

    Someone suggested adding this to wp-config.php:

    define('FS_METHOD','direct');

    That helped with the ftp credentials issue, but now I have the issue for this post.
