Error “Is its parent directory writable by the server?” Uploading images
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.
