Photos no longer upload properly after domain move. (4 posts)

    Hello all.

    I recently moved my blog from one domain to another. I've used search and replace plugin to get the images in the blog to show, and used a replace query in mySQL to make sure that everything is pointing in the right direction.

    However, when I try to upload an image from my hard drive, it crunches the image and the displays the meta options (name, caption etc.). Upon hitting "insert into post" I'm met with a broken image - it's not displaying anything other than the box in which the image should fit and the image name at the top left hand corner.

    I have checked the advanced properties of the broken image and this is the address of the image:

    http://www.blogname.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/DSCF2735.jpg

    The only issue that I have with this location is that "08" is a directory that does not exist on my webserver. In the 2009 directory, there are only "05", "06" and "07" folders all of which contain uploaded images.

    Any help would be appreciated in figuring out this issue.

    manually create the 08 folder
    or set
    /wp-content and all uploads folders under it to chmod 777 and upload an image
    then chmod back to 755 for security
    sort of like training the new server

    Thanks for the reply my friend, but that didn't work - I followed exactly what you said. I changed the permissions to 777 for wp-content and then the uploads folder and all subfolders, and I created 08 with 777 permissions too.

    What do you suggest?

    :(
