When i try to upload a new picture to my site i receive the following error:
Unable to create directory uploads/2016/07. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
This is normally happened when you move a website to a new server. Your old server upload path is still in your database WP_Option Form. Just change your path back will be working.
This can be done by login to your phpMyadmin and go to table option. Find the upload path and change it.
The Path should be: “wp-content/uploads” not your Full Path.
This also can be done in your wp-admin control panel Media Settings menu.
It can solve following error:
Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads
Unable to create directory /wp-content/uploads/ Is its parent directory writable by the server?
Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2017/06
Someone may suggest you to change your folder permission to 755. Donot listen to them.
