I am new to WordPress, but successfully created a site locally on MAMP. I am now trying to make a live site. The main install works fine, however, I am unable to upload any media and I get the message
“The uploaded file could not be moved to /var/www/vhosts/entertainerssurreysussex.co.uk/httpdocs/wp-content/uploads.”
I have tried the following
changed all file permissions to 777
tried different browsers
reinstalled wordpress several times and created a new database each time
Uploaded an mp3 file with Filezilla to the uploads folder. I can see it in the file, but WordPress can’t.
I have used both flash upload and the browse method.
The only think I noted was that when I was asked to paste in the lines of code to set up the site WordPress only provided me with 4 lines, but it looked line there where 8 lines of code to be filled in. the code for.
define('AUTH_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');
define('SECURE_AUTH_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');
define('LOGGED_IN_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');
define('NONCE_SALT', 'put your unique phrase here');
Where not provided by wordpress.
I hope that someone can help, its very frustrating. Thanks
