Just a quick 6 monthly blog post.
As I am pretty lame at server management and checking some of my smaller websites I noticed that some of my images were not being displayed on WordPress websites which I own.
Whilst in WordPress trying to find the reason for images not displaying, I thought it was a good time to upload the latest version of WordPress and I was presented with this error.
“Upload folder is not writable. Export and file upload features will not be functional.”
My first thought was to check the file permissions in my FTP client – I did they were fine.
So I did what everyone does and used Google to search for the error and all the answers were related to permissions and this was not my issue.
I then found out the issue was that I had maxed out my diskspace so there was no space left to write – simple hey?
Problem: “Upload folder is not writable. Export and file upload features will not be functional.”
Fix: Check your disk space.
