Problem uploading photo (2 posts)

    When I try to upload a photo to the post I'm writing by clicking on the Upload/Insert "Add Media" button, I'm having trouble. I browse and select the photo, it appears to be uploading and then it gives me this message:

    “IMG_3001.JPG” has failed to upload due to an error
    Unable to create directory uploads/2012/10. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Any help would be very welcome!

    Thank you.

    Login to your Blog as admin, go to Miscellaneous under Settings.

    You’ll find the option “Store uploads in this folder” Set it to default which is “wp-content/uploads“, unless u specifically want the content in some other folder.

    This should solve your problem !

    There is a more complicated way of changing the file upload path of your wordpress blog, this is recommended only for those who know how to handle wp-config file !

    For this you’ll have to modify wp-config.php file. Add below mentioned code before

    require_once(ABSPATH.’wp-settings.php’); code in your wp-config file

    define(‘UPLOADS’, ‘wp-content/new_folder’);

    Once you save this new configuration all your uploaded files will go to the ‘new_folder’ under wp-content directory.
