Support » Installing WordPress » uploaded file could not be moved

  • Resolved Scott West


    I’m trying to add a jpg from my computer under the “Add media files from your computer” I’ve used both up-loaders and still no luck. I can do this with an ftp but am in need of using WP for the WP e-Commerce plug-in. will any of you fine people that use and understand Word Press help a newbie?

    Thanks, Scott

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/431p456k/public_html/westtx/wp-content/uploads/2011/05.

  • Hi,

    It looks like when you installed WP something went wrong, usually you would fix that error by doing the following:

    1.From WP Administration, go to Settings > Media

    2.Check the “Uploading Files” section and change the “Store uploads in this folder” field to the default setting – wp-content/uploads – and “Save the Changes“

    3.Try another upload

    4.If it still does not work, change the permissions on the uploads directory to 766 or 777

    Let us know how you get on!

    You also might want to check with your host and find out your max php upload size. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, check this config line and make sure your file isn’t over the allowed value for size.
