Unable to upload plugins or themes to Wordpress



I have installed a new instance of wordpress on a Server. This is a dev instance, there is another production instance that has the same issues.


I installed WP, but when I try to upload either themes or plugins to the site using WP, it fails. It either returns a 503 error or a 404 error. I have updated my cPanel and its running 7.0 PHP, I have also updated the php options (see attached).


I created a .user.ini and php.ini files and still not working.


Any suggestions?


WP Version: 5.1.1

PHP: 7.0

Just wondering if you checked the permissions of the folders to make sure they have write capabilities. That more so seems like what it might be.
