NextGEN Gallery version 1.9.10 at http://alancarterstudio.com
Changed the default directory for galleries on hosting server from wp-content/gallery/ to wp-content/portfolio/.
Also changed the Gallery path on the Options page from wp-content/gallery/ to wp-content/portfolio/. Both the directory structure on the Hosting server and the Gallery path on the Options match. whenever trying to upload, receive the error messages:
"Warning: opendir (XXXX/wp-content/gallery/larger-pieces) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /XXXX/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/admin/functions.php on line 237"
"Unable to write to directory /XXXX/wp-content/gallery/larger-pieces. Is this directory writable by the server?"
CHMOD on the hosting server's folder is 777.
