    Hi.

    I have my wordpress in my site in--

    public_html/wp

    Which means the default uploads folder is--

    public_html/wp/wp-content/uploads

    However I want it to be in--

    public_html/media

    How do I enter this path?

    I'm not convinced that plugin does what you want it to. A cursory glance at the instructions seems to indicate that it simply adds additional options to the preexisting base uploads directory. Take a minute to read the documentation and see if it makes any more sense.

    I'm not so sure that you can easily move your uploads directory outside of your WordPress root directory. There might be something inspiring in one of these sources: move uploads directory outside of root wordpress

    ClaytonJames is correct that your request is outside the scope of what this plugin does, but it's really easy nonetheless. Just set your upload folder to "../media" and the URL to your upload directory to "/media". That's it. I've done this on about a dozen sites and it works fine.
