Error: Upload folder is not writable. Export and file upload... WordPress



I've recently logged into the back end of my site to make some urgent changes and am receiving the error message:

Upload folder is not writable. Export and file upload features will not be functional.

I've not made any changes to the website or host for some time.

I have no idea how to change this and am not an expert on WP or hosts. Would someone mind fixing this for me please?

Hi, I can fix this for you. Please direct message me the login information for your server and I'll take care of it! I will need the Wordpress admin login as well as your server FTP or SSH login information, and obviously the address of your web site.

Change permissions of folder to 755 in your filemanager


S├ębastien | French WordpressDesigner answers:

go to your filemanager (filezilla ?)
find the folder of uploads (wp-content>uploads)
right click on this folder > "permissions of the folder"
type 755 as value and submit
that's all
