  • I cant seem to be able to upload pictures to the site, for a few days now. This is the message I get:
    The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/blogs.dir/52/files/2017/11.
    How do I resolve this?

  • Hi,

    I think that you need to change folder permissions for /uploads/ or /wp-content/.
    you have to give full permission 777 to your /uploads/ or /wp-content/.
    but remember one thing permissions 777 is simply insecure.

    And see Changing File Permissions for the correct WordPress permission.

    Thank you

    Thanks for your answer, no I used to be able to upload pictures with no problem, and I don’t want to change the settings on my computer. I think this has something to do with the site more than anything, as I cant upload any pictures (have tried various kinds).
