Problem

Application: Wordpress

Uploading media to the media library results in the error:

Unable to create directory uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?


Resolution

In the dashboard go to

Settings > Media > Store uploads in this folder

Check to make sure the directory is correct. This could be the result of transferring a website under one user id to another user id and then not updating this setting to reflect the correct path.
