    Hi kperry1384!

    It sounds like the permissions may not be correct; I would recommend reaching out to your hosting company about that.


    Most likely your server is out of space. It could also be a permissions issue though as mentioned by Jose above…

    Hi kperry1384,

    Make sure you have necessary permissions assigned to folder “wp-content/uploads”. You can also contact your web hosting provider to assign necessary folder permissions.

    Hope that helps,
