Subject: Dokuwiki problem installing templates and plugins using Bitnami
I just installed DokuWiki with Bitnami, hosted on the Google Cloud Platform. Unfortunately, I am unable to install new templates and plugins (neither by clicking, uploading or via providing the URL) as I get the error message

Extension directory is not writable

and

There was a file copy error while attempting to install files for directory monobook: the disk could be full or file access permissions may be incorrect. This may have resulted in a partially installed plugin and leave your wiki installation unstable


despite being logged in as @admin. Any ideas? Cheers

This problem has nothing to do with  your status on Dokuwiki but with the server permissions.  If you have the rights to make changes on your server, make sure that all of your directories are writable by the web server and if you don't know about these things ask the server admin to help you.
