    I recently upgraded all my sites to a new server. The WP sites run fine, but some of the plugins get the following:

    With this same plugin, I get the following problem:

    I chmod those, same error warning comes up.

    this is just 1 of them, others have issues also.

    The sites themselves seem to run fine from a browser, so not sure if its WP based or not.

    If I try to install a new plugin, I get the following:

    I have tried deactivating and reactivating plugins, it does not matter, same error. I have even chmod the wordpress folder to 777, makes no difference.

    My guess there is some setting in either php or apache that is not right which is causing these issues, but I am by no means an expert.

    Does anyone have any experience with issues like this?

    It sounds like an ownership issue.

    When you moved hosts, what how did you transfer files? The ownership was probably borked. (not your fault, just a different server setup)
