[resolved] Media Upload Incorrect Slashes IIS 6 (5 posts)

    I'm new to wordpress and I have a problem uploading media. My environment is Windows Vista and Windows Home Server. I do all of my testing on my laptop, which runs Vista and Apache and PHP 5. Everything works fine on the laptop. When I moved my wordpress blog to my Window Home Server machine which is live on the net, my image upload doesn't work correctly. When ever I try to upload an image I get this error.

    The uploaded file could not be moved to C:\Inetpub\fdation\wordpress/wp-content/uploads.

    I believe the error comes from the mixed slashes. I think Apache identifies locations using forward slashes and IIS 6 uses back slashes.

    Any help finding a solution will be greatly appreciated.

    Are you permissions set to 777 in the uploads and wp-content folder?
