error uploading media after migrating WP

  • Hi, I recently migrated my WP site from one host to another.

    I used Woothemes backup tool for theme settings and I used WP export and import feature to move posts & pages etc.

    However I’m getting the following error message when trying to upload media via the media uploader…

    – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

    Warning: call_user_func() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, class ‘WP_Image_Editor_GD’ not found in /homepages/21/d291627595/htdocs/wp-includes/media.php on line 1604

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /homepages/21/d291627595/htdocs/wp-includes/media.php:1604) in /homepages/21/d291627595/htdocs/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 899

    – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

    I would like to know the path of the media files and possibly to edit this as I figured this might be the issue?

    Eitherway I’d like to dismiss this if it not the case.

    If anyone can shine a light on this I’d much appreciate it.

    Many Thanks

    M

    – Check that anti-hotlinking of images isn’t enabled in your hosting account. If it is, try disabling it.
    – Check your uploads path in Dashboard, Settings, Media, Store uploads in this folder . . . normally this would be blank.
    – Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777.
    Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again (very important for security reasons!) and check that everything still works OK.
    Documentation: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions
    – If the above steps do not help, try deactivating ALL plugins temporarily to narrow down the problem. If the problem goes away, activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the problematic plugin.

    Thanks Tara

    I’ll look into this…

    I cannot find Uploads path has this dissappeared with the more recent version of wordpress?

    Is there any other way of checking the media uploads path?
