I understand that’s where WordPress installs from now on, but I am still getting an error message.
The plugin in question is Amazon Associates Link Builder by developed by Amazon.
The latest version lets me set the download folder. This folder will be used to save files downloaded by the plugin (e.g. The MaxMind IP2Country Database) for local use.
The Absolute path is required. Default value:
But when I use
/opt/easyengine/sites/seatingatwork.com/app/htdocs/wp-content/uploads/amazon-associates-link-builder/ it fails with the following error message ~
ERROR - WordPress does not have permissions to write to the “Downloads Folder” (/opt/easyengine/sites/seatingatwork.com/app/htdocs/wp-content/uploads/amazon-associates-link-builder/). Please grant permissions or pick a different folder from the Amazon Associates Link Builder plugin’s settings page, otherwise your links to Amazon might not display correctly.
The permissions and ownership are the same for that directory as all the other WordPress directories [www-data 40755], so that’s the question I need to answer.
