Help! I’m getting the error: “File permission error: cannot write styling file”

PopupAlly Pro attempts to store the styling information in a file for faster performance when your site is loaded in the browser. However, it will return this error if WordPress does not have write permission on the server. (Another example of this is when you install plugins, you are prompted to enter FTP login information).

To get past this error message, you will want to enter the FTP information into wp-config.php.

 

If you are not familiar with that or are uncomfortable making that change, please contact your server host and they should be able to make that adjustment.

 

Here is the WordPress documentation on the topic: https://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#WordPress_Upgrade_Constants

The variables you need to define are:
– FTP_HOST
– FTP_USER
– FTP_PASS
