I have installed WordPress manually on my own VPS, and I am having issues with images; particularly with cropping them via media.
At first, I got the error that wp-content/uploads/ folder could not be created. This was easily solved by chmodding the correct permissions to the parent folder.
What my issue is currently: attempting to crop an uploaded image via media (I am not using an plugins – this is a fresh install with a few minor tweaks to the settings), and it giving me an error that says: “There has been an error cropping your image.” I attached a link that gives you a few images of what I am talking about here.
More than likely, this a problem with something in my VPS that is causing something to break, but I’m clueless as to find it. It can’t be low memory, as I have 128M allocated to my isolated kernel, and it certainly can’t be disk issues, as I have plenty of space. What I think it could be, is a possible permission fault, that is, the owner of my wp-content/uploads is not root (me), but rather “www-data” without the quotes. This is due to me uploading the image via in-browser feature on my WordPress site. I’ve researched a bit more on this part, but I’ve only seen that it causes weird FTP issues to occur in a PHP file; nothing related to permission denying or the such.
So, that leaves me to ask WordPress support how to pinpoint the issue, and to fix it.
Edit: Link code isn’t working, so I had to remove it with the address intact.
