Hello, have a vexing problem. I am trying to load new plugins and after uploading them I cannot see them in the list where I would normally find them (inactive plugins). Also, when I try to upload using the "Install a plugin in .zip format" feature, I get the error message that says "Unable to create directory /public_html/mysite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"
I can still see and manage the existing plugins that were installed a while ago. The site I am trying to add to is one that I haven't tended to for a few months, so not sure when this glitch started. However, I did have my sites moved from a shared to a VPS just a few days ago. It's my thought that something about the move may have corrupted something.
But, I also have another WP install on the same host, but in a different DB. I have no problems adding plugins to that one.
I have no problems reinstalling WP, but if anybody has some ideas to try first, please be my guest.
