Problem Uploading Images In Wordpress
Posted 09 November 2011 - 06:26 PM
“abcdef.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
Unable to create directory /home/bwelford/public_html/seniormoneymemos.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
As I said, I have other 'parallel' WP blogs that have not given me this problem and I don't believe I've had problems in the past with this one.
Does anyone have suggestions on where to look for answers.

I changed something in the admin control panel but searching Google shows some php.ini modifications to turn it off.
Give that a whirl.

1. Login to WHM.
2. Go into the Service Configuration menu and locate the PHP Configuration Editor.
3. From there you can set the various PHP settings such as disabling SAFE MODE.

If this WP site was restored from a backup Apache sometimes sets the owner to Apache, so you need to contact the host and ask them to reset ownership permissions.
Can you confirm to yourself that the permission setting has actually been set? IE CHMOD the uploads folder to 755 and then check the CHMOD setting by sending the command again (in something like Filezilla you will get a popup to set the comands and it will show to what the folder is curently set to), sometimes you can send the CHMOD change command but in fact it doesn't set it (for reasons as described above), I know I've missed this in the past.
Try changing the permission of the uploads folder to 775, and see if that works. If it does, send a message to your host and ask them why 755 won't work, if it does on other sites hosted on the same server.

"Just create /tmp folder in your wordpress directory and it should be fine - works for me :-)"

Thanks to all for suggestions. As Einstein said, it's usually best to go for the simplest answer that works, but it should not be simpler than that.
