  • [Forum] Failed to write css files, Need Help!


    When I try to upload a new theme i get this error :
    PHP Code:
    (Templates) (StyleVars) (Replacement Variables)  (CSS) (ControlsFailed to write css files.  Please make sure that the  directory 'clientscript/vbulletin_css' is writable
    I checked the directory permissions and set theme to 777 but i still getting same error, Can some please help me?

    What happens if you set AdminCP > Settings > Options > Style & Language settings > Save CSS as Files to No?

    And what do you mean you "set theme to 777"? You need to set that directory to 777, not just the one for your style.

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.
