Problem uploading pictures.

  • Looks like I lost my original account after last June. I retrieve password, but then when I use that password to sign in it tells me the .ID. I JUST used to get a new password, is not registered. Try to register: Says already registered.

    Anyway, Im wondering if anyone has any insight as to why I cannot upload pictures after the last version upgrade. I have tried using the drag and drop uploader in addition to the browser uploader.

    Im using :
    3.1.1 WP
    Nextgen gallery 1.9.2

    When I upload a picture, the selector comes up with the “Add media files from your computer” and insertion options, I insert into post, post only shows a broken image icon.

    It looks like it tries to upload “http://www.wjowsa.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/set22251.jpg” but there is no such /02 directory created. I made one, tried uploading again, nothing’s getting put into that folder.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

  • Try to assign 755 recursive permissions to wp-contents folder instead of 777 permissions to uploads folder..

    I made one,

    Delete it. It is essential that WordPress creates this folder. Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.

    tried 775, 766, 767, 777, same result. wont even make the new directory.

    Started poking through all of the settings, found one in settings>>media:

    Uploads folder:

    Changed to


    works fine now.
