I have been noticing of late, after I upload my sites to a different server, I seem to have some sort of upload problem
- Once I have copied and moved site using FTP to a new host I then can not upload new plugins through
wp-adminbecause I get:
Could not create directory.),
I can't upload media on posts or pages because I get:
Unable to create directory
Is its parent directory writable by the server?
I also noticed that at the bottom of
wp-admin/theme-editor.phpthere is a message that says:
"You need to make this file writable before you can save your changes. See the Codex for more information."
I don't have this message on the version of the site on my development hosting server and I don't get any of these error messages either. It is odd, because I just copied the sites as is from one server and moved them to another, and used the search and replace script to change paths.
This has happened to me recently with 3 different sites using 3 different hosts. What's also odd in all these cases, the folder permissions on the uploads and wp content folders are set to
What am I missing and how do I fix this problem?
