Hello, I am running a WordPress site on a localhost. So How can do this same procedure?
Thanks @WPBeginner you ruined all images at my web site with this tutorial…Well done!!!
Try deactivating the latest plugins you installed and upload the photos again.
I get this error each time when i try upload an image “The uploaded file could not be moved to wp-content/uploads/2017/01”. Note that i am using localhost on xampp.
