uploads permission…

  • Hello all,

    This should be simple and I’ve done this before but for some reason it’s not working for a blog hosted by sourceforge.
    I have wp-content with 755 and I’ve mkdir wp-content/uploads and chmoded it to 755, still, I get the upload error message :

    Unable to create directory /home/groups/s/sa/satscheme/htdocs/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/04. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    whenever I try to upload something. 🙁

    Here’s a bit more info:

    -bash-3.00$ ls -lad wp-content/
    drwxr-xr-x 5 pdestroy satscheme 4096 Apr 5 10:17 wp-content/
    -bash-3.00$ ls -lad wp-content/uploads/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 pdestroy satscheme 4096 Apr 5 10:17 wp-content/uploads/

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Paulo Matos

  • wp-content needs to be set to 777 or assign the ownership of wp-content to the webserver.

    …and once you set it to 777, you upload an image via WordPress, then be sure to change it back to 755 😉 Don’t leave it at 777.
