I have installed Wordpress and the X theme on a cloud server. I have two problems that i think are related. First, my X theme shortcodes are not working. Googling for this issue, i came across a few threads where installing Cornerstone was the suggested solution. I’d rather not use Cornerston,e unless absolutely necessary, but i gave it a try. That gave me an error message: “Unable to install Cornerstone. Your WordPress file permissions do not allow plugins to be installed.”
The suggested solution to this is to change file- and directory permissions in the Wordpress installation file structure so that all folders have 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and all files have 644 (rw-r–r--) permissions. I have made this change but i still get the same error. Please help.
