I’m having problems to set permissions to WordPress’ upload path. I always get this message: “Uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads”.
Nginx and php-fpm are running under www-data user. Here is my ls -la output from /var/www/html folder:
drwxrwxr-x 8 www-data www-data 4096 Nov 20 14:25 . drwxrwxr-x 5 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 26 20:41 … -rwxrwxr-x 1 www-data www-data 28 Jan 8 2012 index.php drwxrwxr-x 4 www-data www-data 4096 Aug 6 16:16 languages drwxrwxr-x 7 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 18 13:40 plugins drwxrwxr-x 7 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 18 13:40 themes drwxrwxr-x 2 www-data www-data 4096 Nov 20 14:25 upgrade drwxrwxr-x 5 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 1 23:57 uploads
