  • Upload folder not created in Wp-content folder in 2.8 installation. Is there a solution for this as WordPress issues following error message on any attempts to upload images or files:

    Unable to create directory /not disclosed/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2009/07. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

  • chmod /wp-content to 777
    try the image upload
    should work
    chmod back to 755 for security and should work from now on

    what is the “answer” to this permissions problem. What is causing the problem. The “helper” at my isp was trying to say that some of the wp- files should be executable. Is that right ?? I have already posted permission question above. I made wp-content 777 and I can upload a file via admin but thumbnail does not seem to be created.
    what is correct installation ? what should the permissions of each file be and what should be the ownership of the files and what else needs to be done so that it works without complication ?

    a correctly configured server will work with
    folders 755
    files 644
    on any action
    some servers need 777 on some folders
    ask your host why

    what about the ownership ?
    who should own the files ?
    thanks, not getting a lot of joy from the isp don’t know if it’s ” won’t tell” or ” don’t know”

    ownership really has nothing to do with this issue


    Thanks for your help.
