Strange podPress Error

  • Have any of you ever seen an error like this? I believe it is the reason I’m having such issues with podPress. Most importantly, how do I resolve it?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    The System Information under the podPress General Settings says, “
    Feedcache files will be stored in the follow directory:
    /home/username/public_html/blog/http://www.mysite.com/Blog/wp-content/uploads/podpress_temp

    Could not create uploads/podpress_temp directory. Please set permission of the following directory to 755 or 777:
    /home/username/public_html/blog/http://www.mysite.com/Blog/wp-content/uploads/podpress_temp”

    I thought I had found the solution by changing the URL in the Location of the Media Files area, but the System Information did not change accordingly. As a result, podPress is not updating my feed and iTunes is not getting information regarding new podcast postings.

    I also set all directories in the wp-content/uploads folder to 777. PodPress is still trying to create a folder using a path name that is impossible. What can I do? I can’t get my new podcast feed onto iTunes until this is fixed.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

  • Please create the folder /wp-content/uploads/podpress_temp manually and set the permission to 755.
    It should not be necessary set wp-content/uploads to 777. 755 should be enough. The problem here seems to be that the podpress skript is not allowed to create folders.
