I've come across a lot of people facing this issue that was eventually solved by file permission.

I'm getting this error:

The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2019/11.

While I've tried even with chmod -r 777 in my wp-content/uploads, it is still returning the same error.

I've also added in my wp-config

define( 'UPLOADS', 'wp-content/uploads' );
require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php' );

But nothing seems to work.

  • What kind of upload directory structure do you have? Usually it’s like ’uploads/YEAR/MONTH/’ if you have the store in years/month folders option. – Luckyfella Nov 26 '19 at 21:51
