WordPress. How to deal with “Direct write access not allowed on your server” error

Also, this error message may look like the following: “Direct write access not allowed on your server”.

In case you are using any secure server where you use private keys instead of passwords, chances of getting "To perform the requested action, WordPress needs to access your web server…" message are pretty high because you don’t have permission to upload anything on your server:

To_perform_the_requested_action_WordPress_needs_to_access_your_web_server_1

  1. To fix this quickly, you just need to edit your wp-config.php file and add this code to the very end of the file:

    define('FS_METHOD', 'direct');

    To_perform_the_requested_action_WordPress_needs_to_access_your_web_server_2

This is the end of the tutorial. Now you know how to allow the “direct” filesystem method on your server.
