I’m not 100% sure but it seems like your wp-content directory doesn’t have write permission.

Can you try this tutorial - https://www.wpeka.com/how-to-fix-upload-failed-to-write-file-to-disk-error-in-wordpress.html

Hey dear,

It seems WordPress was unable to locate WordPress media directory.

It’s very easy to fix.

  • Login to WordPress
  • Go to settings > media
  • Do you see a field for entering directory path?
  • Just enter there correct path as per your hosting file manager.
