Unable to post images

we recently switched our wordpress movie news site to dreamhost from godaddy. I am unable to post new images. Here’s the error message:

Unable to create directory uploads/2016/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

this is a problem for us. Working with a tech in another country, trying to find the fix myself.

need help

Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:

FYI, if you go to yourdomain.com//wp-admin/options-media.php you should see two settings for Uploading files.

Store uploads in this folder and Full URL path to files

If you blank them both out, WP will revert to ‘expected’ behavior and you should be okay.
