An issue normally faced by many WordPress developers is the Is its parent directory writable by the server? error.
the whole line is:
“Unable to create directory /mnt/web8/41/24/51413724/htdocs/wp-content/uploads/2009/07. Is its parent directory writable by the server?”
it appears every time I want to upload an image. Either using the normal uploader either using a plugin.
What shall I do?
Okay, guys. You don’t need to change permissions. Also, don’t need to contact your host or anything. There was simply a slash (/) in front of the directory in the default section under Dashboard>Settings> Media. Removed the slash[/] and save the settings.Now upload the pictures in your post.
please make sure it is “wp-content/uploads” and not “/wp-content/uploads”
waiting to know if it was still not solved.
My default had the slash in front. Amazing. I didn’t need to change permissions or anything.
