Spyderserve Web Development

Recently I was migrating a WordPress site away from Godaddy hosting.  Normally I just remove a few extra entries in the wp-config.php file but this time I started having issues uploading new plugins.  I am not sure if this was from a WordPress version upgrade or the site being transferred from Godaddy but here is some simple steps to take to fix the issue.

  1. The first step is to check the ownership and permissions for the wp-content and the wp-content/uploads folders.  These folders need to be set to 755 and be owned by the user running your web server for the upload to work.  Check this and if a fix is necessary then try to upload a plugin after changing the folders, it just might work.  If this works then no need to go to the next step!
  2. The second step, is to check to see if an upload_path option is stored in the [prefix]options table of your WordPress database.  If it is, make sure it is set to the appropriate directory.
