Support » Fixing WordPress » Can upload images via Filezilla

  • Please help, I’ve dragged my gif file into Images but when I then go to upload them in wordpress using the image button on the editor tool bar, I get this error message.

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /var/www/vhosts/

    Thanks for responding

  • /wp-content
    chmod this folder to 777

    go to
    admin – settings – miscellanious
    set your uploads folder there
    do an upload
    after success – chmod folder back to 755
    should work from now on

    Hi Samboll, thanks for this but can you please explain the chmod part?
    I’m not familiar with that.

    chmod is a *nix command for changing file permissions. If you are using FileZilla login, right click on the folder and look for ‘File Permissions’ at the bottom of the pop-up. You’ll get a set of checkboxes. Check them all. You should notice that the ‘Numeric Value’ now reads 777.

    Both you guys are great, thanks a lot!
