Cannot install scripts, maybe write permissions?
« on: November 15, 2017, 11:03:38 PM »
Installed Softaculous using CWP (pro version) and all seemed to work fine. Updated Softaculous license to paid and still fine and no errors.

Now I am trying to install WordPress onto a domain and this is error thrown:

Code: [Select]
The following errors were found :

Could not write the Configuration File _htaccess

How can this be fixed, anyone with idea or tips appreciated.

This happens from time to time and can be frustrating. If you are using the Softaculous installer you should see an option to "overwrite" existing files. Try to install with that overwrite option checked and let me know if the problem persists. However, make sure you are installing WordPress in the intended domain or directory so you do not overwrite files you need.

Thank you for reply!

I did choose the option to overwrite and got the error again. Came back few minutes later, tried again and it worked. Seems like CWP and Softaculous are like my old tube radio, got to bang on it a little to make it work:)

Never had that happen using ole cPanel so the error threw me into a loop.

Thank again.
