WordPress the error message After the conversion from the old to the new environment, it can occur in exceptional cases that when uploading new places and the like within “Cannot create folder uploads/…. Is the parent folder writable by the server?” gives.

This is caused by a wrong upload_path setting in WordPress. This setting can be adjusted in several ways:

Database: In the wp_options table, find the record with the option_value “upload_path”. The correct path can then be entered there.
wp-config.php: An extra line can be added to the wp-config.php file (or replaced if it already exists). The rule looks like this:

define( ‘UPLOADS’, ‘wp-content/uploads’ ); Here the path must be entered from the root folder of the website.
