hello Karen,

you may be trying to upload your files to the wrong folder on the server, and you do not have permission to upload files to that folder because it's not the proper location to put files. Double-check the instructions from your web hosting provider to make sure you're uploading to the correct folder for website files.

First of all please ensure that you're uploading files to the correct folder.
Secondly it needs to be ensured that folder where you're uploading your files has correct write permissions.
