Having trouble uploading images (3 posts)

    I keep receiving various error message when I try and upload images to our media gallery:

    Error saving media attachment.

    IO error

    Unable to create directory /var/www/vhosts/lighthousemin.org/httpdocs/wp-content/uploads/2012/08. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Just expanded our space with our host, but that didn't fix the problem.

    Login via FTP with an FTP client and check your wp-content/uploads/ folder permissions.

    WP needs to be able to create new folders.

    If you aren't sure, you can check with your webhost.

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.
