Error trying to enter Cloudflare's API Key

When following these instructions:

Enter your Cloudflare’s API key and e-mail

You don’t know how to do it? Follow these simple four steps:

  1. Log in to your Cloudflare account and click on My Profile
  2. Click on API tokens, scroll to API Keys and click on View beside Global API Key
  3. Enter your Cloudflare login password and click on View
  4. Enter both API key and e-mail address into the form below and click on Update settings

It fails and I get this:

Error: The .htaccess file (/wordpress/core/5.7.2/.htaccess) could not be edited. Check if the file has write permissions.

How do I fix this or who do I contact or do I need to move my site?
Thanks for any help in advance.

May I ask if you are trying to edit your .htaccess file through the WordPress editor?
If so, unfortunately I am afraid that will not work.

You would need to connect via FTP and edit your .htaccess file as needed.
Or, re-check for CHMOD permissions for that file.
