I recently moved a WordPress site to a new shared host account at inmotion and thought everything was ok until my client tried to upload a photo and got this error:
“filename.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 went to the file manager in cpanel and changed permissions for the uploads folder and the 2014 folder to 777, but it had no effect. I checked with the inmotion online chat support guys who normally solve all my problems, but they said it must be a WordPress problem. I searched here and found a few similar problems but no solutions other than changing the permissions, which didn't work for me.
Can anyone help?
