I upgraded my WordPress blog and almost all the plugins related to it, but all of a sudden I started getting into some problems…
I tried to add images to a post, and got an error saying
“whatever.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
The uploaded file could not be moved to ……../public_html/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/06.
The directory exists and I have all the necessary write permissions – I didn’t change them between yesterday and today!
Then, I got another error…..
Warning: touch() [function.touch]: Unable to create file ………/public_html/blog/wp-content/uploads/wordpress-seo.tmp because Permission denied in ……../public_html/blog/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 177
from trying to update the WordPress SEO plugin. I didn’t change the permissions on the FTP whatsoever so this was a little odd. I went to the file mentioned, and it had write access for both owner and group (I’m not sure how my FTP server is set up, so I went for having both write accesses). I even quickly tried adding public write access and trying to update but to no avail.
I also tried disabling all plugins and changing into a default theme but it didn´t help. Does anyone have an issue like mine?
