Runway incorrectly saying resources not writable

On edit pages I am getting an error / warning message saying that the resources folder is not writable, such as this on the settings page:

Your resources folder is not writable. Make this folder (/public_html/perch/resources) writable if you want to upload a custom logo.

However, it IS writable, and I have no problem uploading assets. The diagnostic page even says:

PHP limits: Max upload 64M, Max POST 64M, Memory: 128M, Total max file upload: 64M
F1: 0c66c2e1f82f9e0b7617b2cb8270f2c7
Resource folder writeable: Yes

Why would that be the case? It's concerning the client.

The most likely case would be an incorrect path. I wouldn't expect to see /public_html/perch/resources there. public_html should neither be at the root of your disk or the root of your site, so it looks wrong whichever.

It was an incomplete path in the buckets.php config file, not the main one.
