    I am getting the following error after installing wordpress. The error is when I upload media to the /wp-content/ dir.

    Are the slash and backslash a clue?

    The uploaded file could not be moved to D:\Inetpub\servernamehere\blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/01.

    I have read several posts about changing permissions/ownership of folders (there seems to be a lot of advise that is BAD for security like changing permissions to 777). The below topic was marked resolved, but is similar to my issue. The difference is that I use a host and only have ftp and browser access to the host. If I am not sitting in front of the server, how can I check ownership? my ftp client doesn't allow this.

    the url is correct for a windows server
    as for permissions you only set folders to 777 for one upload - after that you switch back to 755 and it should work from then on
    you likely need to ask your host if the permissions are in place for windows - or better yet switch to a linux server which is way more php/mysql friendly

    Problem: When trying to upload a plugin to WordPress, the following error is given:

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/user/public_html/domain.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12.

    Solution: Within WHM, under Main >> Service Configuration >> PHP Configuration Editor, the "upload_max_filesize" was incorrectly set to 64MB, when it should have been set to 64M.

    Notice the extra B in MB? It causes the error. Just an FYI...
