    The uploaded file could not be moved to /var/www/the_tracy_times/wp-content/uploads/2009/02.

    change the uploads path to reflect now

    Thanks (again) samboll. I can upload images and other files just fine now. What I see is occurring now is that a thumbnail is being created for the images, but not for other file types. (PDF, HTML, etc.)

    I have the same problem. My wordpress files are in a subfolder and index.php is in the root. When everything was in the root, it worked fine, now after moving it I get the upload error. I have double checked the uploads path in Misc settings and it didn’t work. What else could be the problem after moving WordPress into a subfolder?

    Would really appreciate some advice.



    Assign 755 recursive permissions to wp-content folder and reset the upload path from wordpress admin area.

    If problem not solved then provide the exact error message.
