I'm using docker and docker compose to install WordPress on my localhost and everything is working fine however i'm having problems when uploading new media and installing themes, new plugins e.t.c.
The message "Could not create directory" appears when i want to install a new plugin.
With extensive research i have tried many options to fix the file/folder permissions, even with a chmod 777 and still with no success.
My docker compose file is:
wordpress: container_name: testing image: wordpress environment: - WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD=password - VIRTUAL_HOST=stores.dev ports: - "80:80" volumes: - ./:/var/www/html links: - psdb4:mysql psdb4: image: mysql:5.7 environment: - MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=password - MYSQL_DATABASE=wordpress
I have used the following command with no such luck on my WordPress directory:
chmod -R 777 wordpress chmod -R 755 wordpress
I'm using a Mac on El Capitan 10.11.6.
It would also be nice to have my virtual host 'stores.dev' to work too but that fails and the WP site can only be accessed via my docker machine IP.
Kinda losing hope with all this and wanting to get it sorted.
