Few days ago I migrated my site to a new server and the problem started after that, before migrating everything was fine. Now, when I click on add media and select any image it says... Unable to create directory uploads/2018/12. Is its parent directory writable by the server? I found some answers to this question, and have tried to edit the options.php file but no luck yet also I have checked it and fourd that the permissions on above directory is 777. So please check the same and help me.

This is the common issue we are facing when we change the server of the website.However in this there is no issue of permission to folder . In your admin, go to Settings/Media and change the upload path to that of the new server.
