My WP site was recently moved to a different sever. It is up and running, but that copy is now a week out of date. I have exported a newer copy, but when I try to import it using the built-in importer, I get the error message "Unable to create directory uploads/2013/03. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"
I assume it means the directory wp-content/uploads. I have changed the permissions on both wp-content and uploads to 777. I even tried adding the directory wp-content/uploads/2013/03 manually. It didn't work.
If I set the parent directory to anything more than 770, I get an internal server error. I don't what else to try. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
