Support » Fixing WordPress » PROBLEM – Inserting Image from desktop using ADD MEDIA button

  • Hello guys,

    When I try to insert an image from my desktop onto my page – using ADD MEDIA button – it fails to do so, giving me this warning:

    “Unable to create directory uploads/2013/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”

    I just checked the permissions of my UPLOAD FOLDER and they are as follows:

    OWNER:
    Access: Read Write Execute

    GROUP:
    Access: Read Execute
    Others: Read Execute
    UNIX equivalent: 755

    I am not quite sure, but it might have started happening after the latest WP update.

    THANK YOU FOR ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO TROUBLESHOOT THIS.
