I am wondering if the plugin “WP Original Media Path” will let me fix a problem which has appeared with my WP 3.5.1 Media Library image file uploads. For some as yet unexplained reason the URL for uploads has changed its machine and domain name from “http://www.hiddenhistory.co.uk/wp-content/uploads…etc” to “http://ftp5.dns-systems.net/~hiddenhistory/wp-content/uploads/…etc”.
Consequently some images do not display properly, being replaced by a placeholder, and when I try to upload new image files using the WP file browser I get the error message “image.gif has failed to upload due to an error. Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2014/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”.
I think the path “ftp5.dns-systems.net/~hiddenhistory/” is referring to my server address, or redirection to it, rather than simply my own domain as specified in my WP settings for WP address and site address, which are both set to “www.hiddenhistory.co.uk”. But I have no idea why its doing this. Is it something to do with the way WP was installed in the first place perhaps? Site link:
