I am tryin to update the core of Wordpress to 6.2 from the site desktop for a company whose WPML contract has expired.
This is the error I get from WP: "WPML String Translation is trying to write .mo files with translations in the folder: /www/domains/digitalscreen.com.0/public/wp-content/languages/wpml
Apparently, this folder cannot be written to. This is preventing the translation of strings from appearing on the website.
To resolve this, please contact your hosting company and request that they grant write permission to this folder.
For more details, please see the WPML documentation on troubleshooting .mo file generation issues."
I have checked "/www/domains/digitalscreen.com.0/public/wp-content/languages/wpml" the folder's permissions and it is set to 755, so I guess it should allow writting.
My question is what solution is better to continue with the core update:
- May I desactivate WPML plugins, then proceed again to core update? In which case, will I be able to enable WPML plugins back again?
- Will manually upgrade of the core work?
Thanks for any help provided
