    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.

    And please do not bump your topics in future. Bumps will be deleted in sight.

    Thank you for the answer esmi, i did what you told me but din’t fix the problem, when i delete the las picture that i upload everything beging to work, but when i upload a new picture work good, after i try to upload other one din’t work again..

    i delete few old pictures like 500 old pictures and was working good, for now is working, but do you have any idea why this is happend ?

    Thank you

    Perhaps you had reached your hosting space limit? Try asking your hosts.

    not yet i check, and im using 899MB of 150,000MB

    so im not sure what’s happend, i will upgrade to the last version so i hope all the problems get fixed, thanks

    Some host may limit the number of files in any one given folder. This is why WordPress offers you the option to place uploaded files in month/year sub-folders. Are you using this option?

    yes Esmi im using that option, i think godaddy have a limit of files per folder, cuz i have like 3,000 pictures or more per months

    You might want to check with them but I’m petty sure that this is the problem.

    I having the same problem since I updated to wp 3.2.1 please help me resolve this trouble.Thanks.

    hi agustin try this:

    did u create the upload folder? or wordpress did?

    if you create the upload folder, change the name and try to upload a new file like this wordpress will create the folder for u with the correct file permissions.

    Ok Thanks I’ll. try that.
