Unable to Upload an Image to my WordPress Post
Posted by H9 Admin on 27 January 2015 05:21 PM

Sometimes, when you're in WordPress creating a new blog post you go to upload an image into that post and WHAM! it won't upload and a error message comes up:

Unable to create directory /path/to/uploads/2012/12

To correct this issue:

  1. Log into your WordPress Dashboard

  2. Click Settings, from the left-hand side menu

    Settings > Media

  3. Click Media

  4. Tick the box adjacent to 'Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders'

    Organize your uploads

  5. Click Save Changes

The issue should now be resolved! Let us know if you continue to experience issues and we'll see what we can do to help.
