Problem with Loading Photo to Posts (3 posts)

    I too, have a problem that just cropped up loading photos to my posts and it is frustrating as "you know what"! I continue to get an error saying....

      "unable to create directory /wp-content/uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server."

    I checked the file on the server and it is there along with the photos. I also deactivated all the plug-ins to make sure they were not interfering but NO SUCH LUCK!

    I use the Flexsqueeze theme but I can't see how that would affect anything and I am about ready to give up as I don't know where to turn.

    Any tips, thoughts, would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Assign 766 recursive permissions wp-content folder of the blog and add this code in htaccess:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </IfModule>

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Thanks Shane -

    I was able to assign 766 recursive permissions in the wp-content folder but I am unsure how to add the code in the htaccess file. If I try to edit, it automatically takes me out of the ftp site and shuts down.

    I must be doing something wrong here. Can you explain as if you were explaining to a beginner because that is what I am. I know enough to be dangerous and that is it! Again, I appreciate your help.
