Hi ,
We are using Plesk as hosting software , since we started using wordpress 3.9.2 , we have the issue of uploading.

Wordpress gets installed without any issue, but when we try to uplaod something , we get this error message :
http://solution21inc.com/wordpress_Farid/wp-admin/

We didn't have this problem before 3.9.2.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi ,
Sorry , this is the error

Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2014/08. Is its parent directory writable by the server?


the thing is wordpress was installed without any problem, didn't give any error message.

Hi ,

I just realized that when wordpress gets installed, lets say on wordpress_Farid , this folder (which is the parent folder of wordpress) doesn't have write permission



ls -lta | grep Farid
    4 drwxr-xrwx   7 user  psacln      4096 Aug 20 17:54 wordpress_Farid/

seems that my response led to an answer, might not be worth the full 500 but it did provide an insight to the issue
