Hi there,

I get this error when I try to install EE4:
You don’t have permission to access /wp-admin/update.php on this server.

Please assist…

Thank you.

Hi Werner,

There may be an issue with the permissions on your WordPress site. Are you currently running any security-related plugins?

Try this alternative install method:

1. Locate the event-espresso folder on your computer and unzip it.

2. Login to your WordPress root with a SFTP or FTP client and browse to the WordPress plugins directory: wp-content/plugins.

3. Now upload the event-espresso folder to the WordPress plugins directory.

4. Return to the WordPress admin and go to Plugins. Then activate Event Espresso.
