[Resolved] i can't upload any new image to recently transfered online website

  • hello there,
    I’m new to WordPress, I’m on it for the pas few months and I’m currently setting up a website for a client.

    I have been working on my localhost and 2 days ago I have successfully transferred it online at http://anicolaou.com.cy

    Everything seems OK except the fact that I can’t upload any image anymore either in post or even the logo of the website..

    thank you for your time

    p.s. I’m using icarus wordpress theme

    Can you replicate the problem using the default Twenty Fourteen theme with all plugins deactivated?

    What happens when you try to upload an image?

    thank you for your immediate response!

    here are 2 screen shots:

    you mean if I activate the Twenty Fourteen theme (I don’t have any plugins activated) to see if I can upload any image? Won’t I lose any changes I have made in current theme’s options?

    thanks

    Yes

    Won’t I lose any changes I have made in current theme’s options?

    No. Your theme settings are saved in your database and should be retained for future use.

    hi,
    I’ve tried the Twenty Fourteen theme and I couldn’t upload either…

    [Moderator Note: No bumping, thank you.]

    Looks like it could be a file permissions problem. There’s a codex article about that:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

    hi thanks for your reply..

    Since I’m new to WordPress, can you please explain to me what should I do, cos I don’t seem to get it..
    I’ve been messing around with the file permissions for some time now and nothing worked.. Now I have no idea what I did and what else shall I do..

    File permissions aren’t unique to WordPress, you’ll encounter them a lot in server based applications. If you read the codex page and didn’t understand it, maybe take a step back and read up on operating systems such as Linux and how file permissions work. You’ll benefit from it and your clients will benefit from your greater knowledge.

    The short answer to what you need to do on your site is recursively set file permissions for directories to 755 and 644 for files.

    well..
    thanks, I guess.

    hi,
    I have changed the permissions and the problem persists.
    Could it be something else instead a problem with permissions?

    thanks

    all fixed!
    i just deleted and recreated the uploads folder…
