Why am I not being allowed to write files to my website, it was recently working, my host had some technical issues yesterday,, and now it isn;t working.... are they directly related or is this just coincidence?

If just a coincidence.. can anyone offer any solutions please?!

I don't know if this may help but could be the file or folder your trying to write has only read permission try changing it inside your file mrg in c-panel or which ever hostpanel your using.
