Is its parent directory writable by the server? June 4, 2017 at 5:31 am #139 FPGA Development BoardKeymaster 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. FPGA Development Board June 4, 2017 at 5:39 am #140 FPGA Development BoardKeymaster 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?
