  • Seems like a permission problem to me..

  • Like @iamkingsleyf suggested, this sounds like it might be a permissions error. The webserver needs to have the correct permissions to write a file in the folder. What's the output of ls -la /var/www/html/wp-content/uploads ? The contents of Nginx's error log could also help you figure out what the issue is. Check /var/log/nginx/error.log
