Fix: Installation failed: could not create a directory on a WordPress website.

Are you having trouble with WordPress plugin installation? If you are receiving an error ‘Installation failed: could not create a directory’ on your WordPress website, then this video will guide you on how to fix it. This issue mainly arises due to incorrect file permissions or a missing plugins folder.

To resolve the issue, you need to access your website’s root directory using FTP or cPanel and locate all the files and folders. If the permission of the plugins folder is set to 644, change it to 755. If you cannot find the plugins folder, simply create a new folder and name it “plugins.” Make sure the file permission is set to 755.

We hope this tutorial will help you fix the “could not create a directory” error and successfully install the necessary plugins on your WordPress website.
