So I've renamed my wp-content folder to "r" for resources. I serve a lot more than just the themes and plugins from here. I've defined the WP_CONTENT_DIR and WP_CONTENT_URL in my wp-config.php and almost everything works fine.
Themes and plugins load and all old images are served up from the r/uploads directory just fine.
My problem is when I try to upload an image it creates the entry in the media manager but it doesn't actually upload the image.
Any ideas why this might be?
