Correct spelling, explanation: this adverb should be spelled with double s just like in the core noun, success. Double s occurs there because of Latin origin – succedere with action suffix -tus (combination of consonants d and t transform to ss in Latin). Therefore successfully is the correct spelling.
Succesfully is a misspelling.
Definition of successfully:
adverb, in a manner that brings success or achievement
She successfully passed the driving test.
Martha asked for a pay raise and got it successfully.
Incorrect spelling, explanation:
succesfully is a wrong form, because in the noun that this word comes from, success, there are two s’a. Double consonant s remained with adjective successful and then in adverbial form successfully, which is the only correct spelling.
