I am very new to word press, and I have been trying to upload photos to my posts, and each time I do, it says there is an error "has failed to upload due to an error Failed to write file to disk."

I used to be able to do this, and now it will not let me.

This might came from your access right:

  • First, check that you are a writer or an admin (See User in Admin Panel) > general > Role
  • Second, if this is not the problem check the rights of yoursource files into your server ( you can easily check this on your FTP files or if you run it locally directly in the directory)
