I'm using WordPress currently on my laptop accessing it through localhost. I've uploaded several files as headers, backgrounds, and pictures but they don't show up. I did some searching and tried some changes. I noticed that there weren't proper permissions set for /var/www/wp-uploads/localhost and /usr/share/wordpress/wp-content. I set the permissions through the terminal and gained access to the folders. This didn't help with the files showing. In the media settings I set the path to the /var/www/wp-uploads/localhost but that didn't help. I'm not sure what to try next and I'm getting frustrated. If I don't get it figured out soon I'll lose interest and give up.
