Hi rlparker - I've just started getting this error on a WP blog... visited your link from the previous post https://discussion.dreamhost.com/showthreaded.pl?Cat=0&Board=forum_beginners&Number=121879 , but getting an error 404. Would greatly appreciate any direction you can offer... besides the chmod 777 trick (yes I put it back to 755) I also tried to chown -R dhapache:dhapache uploads, but no permission.
Hi - NM - I found it. Turns out that I was a flake... yeah pebkac, I know. Solution: I had migrated this site from another server long ago and didn't realize that I neglected to modify the uploads path. I assumed this was the result of the most recent update, but alas, no, silly me.
Go to: Settings --> Media --> Store Media in this folder and there put the FULL PATH of your uploads, which on Galactus , for example, is /home/username/domain.tld/wp-content/uploads
Thanks for nudging me in the right direction.
