says I cannot write to server, but directory indicates server was writable (3 posts)

    I was uploading images just fine.

    Now I can't because it says

    Unable to create directory /wp-content/uploads/2008/08. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    The file on the server indicates that it is writable.

    Thank you.

    It's just gone into a new month, so needs to create the '08' directory. Compare the file permissions on the 2008 directory with the ones on the 07 directory. Whatever the 07 one is set on, change the 2008 one to match it.

    If SafeMode is turned on, you will propably have to do this every month. Check: image upload problem - parent directory writeable
