Joomla Error - JFolder::create: Could not create directory

JFolder::create: Could not create directory
Plugin Install: Failed to create directory:

 

This can occur when trying to upload content or when installing themes/templates.

It's usually not a permissions issue per say but doing a 777 (which is very insecure) will fix it.  But the real problem solution is that the owner of the files is different than the owner of the Apache process/server.

Eg. if your Apache is running as user "apache" but your Joomla files/folders are owned by "abcuser", this is why you're having issues.  One solution is to give ownership to "abcuser" over the Joomla files and it will be fixed.
