Upload path issue on WP 3.0 – Windows 2003 R2

  • Running WP 3.0 on Windows Server 2003 R2 in a subfolder in the root (/president/).

    I have tried a number of different paths to get the images to upload into the correct folder. However, each one has issues described below:

    Settings –> Media -> Uploading Files -> Store uploads in this folder

    /wp-content/uploads — ORIGINAL setting, puts it on D drive root.
    This is very strange b/c the FTP user we set up for this does not have permission to write to the directories above /president/.

    wp-content/uploads – breaks all existing images and causes error during upload; error message: Error saving media attachment. This one seems to be the most logical path, however causes an error. The error message gives no indication of what the problem is though.

    /president/wp-content/uploads — puts it on D drive root inside a new president folder

    ./president/wp-content/uploads — puts new president folder in president folder

    president/wp-content/uploads — puts new president folder in president folder

    ../president/wp-content/uploads — causes error during upload

    Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong?
    Thanks.
