What is the difference between the
wp-uploads directory and the
wp-content/uploads directory? I am running Ubuntu Server 12.04 and recently installed WordPress using apt-get, but there have been a few problems.
Most of the install went into
/usr/share/wordpress including a
wp-content directory, but inside that, there is no
upload directory. Instead, in
/srv/www there is a symbolic link to the main directory, and a
wp-uploads directory. After changing the permissions of
/srv/www, I am able to upload things, but not access them via any URL.
Any ideas how to properly WordPress to serve stuff from
/srv/www/wp-uploads? Any ideas why it's installed like that? Should I just delete it, and reconfigure to use
wp-content/uploads like everyone else?
