    Default Your addon directory is not writeable

    I am getting the following warning when installing 2.5.8

    Your addon directory is not writeable, the addon manager will not work correctly.

    I've tried changing file permissions without sucess and also I have never had to do this before with my other installs. Does anyone know what causes this warning?

    Default Re: Your addon directory is not writeable

    Yes, it's because your addons folder is not writable by the web server.

    Ask your host what permissions to use.
