Question

I transferred my WordPress website from shared hosting to DO. Now I am not able to upload images and file in the website.

I have tried changing permissions of the uploads folder. I also tried increasing memory limit in the .htaccess file. Nothing has worked for me. The website was working fine before i transferred the website from shared hosting in Namecheap.

Hey friend!

Try this command over console or SSH, and see if it helps:
