    Hi,
    I have just opened a new site and uploaded WordPress.
    Impossible to upload pictures. I receive this error :
    “xxxx.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
    "Unable to create directory /home/www/1a4a840f251d2c4a9db1497def4bcecd/web/wordpress/wp-content/upLoads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"
    Can somebody help ?

    Check the permissions on your wp-content/uploads directory, and make sure they're set to 755.

    -make sure images are not blocked by hotlink protection, contact your webserver.

    - check path in Admin => Settings => Media,

    - make sure wp-content/upload folder is writable (try 766, 767, or 777 permission).
