Hello, I am working on a final project for a Linux and system programming class, and we are supposed to setup a server and use WordPress to manage a website. I've got everything up and running, but I can't seem to use any media. When I try to upload a picture, it uploads successfully, but in my media section from the admin page, the thumbnail shows up as a broken link and clicking it says the file cannot be found at /wp-uploads/2011/11/Screenshot-at-2011-10-18-223423.png. When I check that folder with my file browser though, the image is there. I thought it is was a permissions thing, so I tried changing permissions on the folder and symbolic linking to other folders, but still haven't managed to get it to work.
Also, I'm not sure if it matters, but I went ahead and installed phpmyadmin to check out the database, thinking maybe something was corrupt, and I noticed I don't have any table for media at all. I don't know if that is normal or not, as I don't have any experience with WordPress, but I thought I'd mention it.
