I installed Wordpress via Dreamhost on Sunday and then transferred my Blogger blog to WP via WP.
The page takes a long time to load because it’s trying to find all of the images. None of the images in previous (Blogger) posts work, and when I tried to post a new image, that doesn’t work (see the most recent post on my blog) either. The images simply don’t show up in any way.
I discovered that I’m having this issue because the “uploads” folder was not created in the “wp-content” folder. However, I don’t have the rights to add a folder on the server. Someone on the WP forums told me I need to get those rights. I’ve searched all over WP and Dreamhost help docs, but I can’t find anything about this.
Why would the “one-click” install not complete the process by installing all of the necessary sub-folders??
I don’t know MySql, but I looked at my WP database and I don’t even see a way to give myself the rights or add a directory to a folder that is not even listed in the DB webview (wp-content).
So, I basically need to know how I can add the “uploads” folder to my “wp-content” folder on the web server. That should fix the problem.
