[Resolved] Cant add images to the Media section – error: Unable to create directory uploads
I can’t upload any images to the Media section.
I get an error message:
“paintings-06.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
Unable to create directory uploads/2014/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
I tried manually creating the directories, but this didn’t help.
I also tried changing the permissions, but with a Windows based hosting account there’s not a lot to change. I also called up GoDaddy and had them reset the permissions, but that hasn’t helped either.
I recently moved my hosting account from one domain to another, and then upgraded to the latest WordPress 3.8.. so somewhere along the line something has gone wrong, but my hosting company (GoDaddy) can’t figure it out either.
I’m using the Virtue theme, but I had tried other themes too and it still wouldn’t upload images.
I can’t upload images from within posts either.
I don’t have any images uploaded already so I can’t test if I can insert images into posts.
I tried uploading some images manually via my hosting File Manager but I can’t see the images from within WordPress.
I changed the Permalinks, but that didn’t have any effect.
I also unticked the box in the Media Settings section that organises files into month- and year-based folders.. still no luck.
I have no idea what I’m doing, really, and no idea how to fix it.
Someone, please help!!!
