I get the following error message when I try to upload the photo:

"Upload failed. The error message was: Error uploading the file: The file system path "/home/tramweb/public_html/craft/assets/content/" set for this source does not exist."

  • Have you created that directory? If not, you need to. Apr 9, 2015 at 7:08

    @Marion I think you're right and this should resolve that error. On the other hand I always wondered why Craft is able to dynamically create sub-folders for assets but the source's root folder has to be created manually.

    @carlcs I assume it's because the root folder can be Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage etc., and maybe some of those are not so easy to create. Apr 10, 2015 at 5:13

Have you created that directory? If not, you need to. Also be sure the directory you create has the correct permissionss (writable by the web server)

  • Also, make sure that you have the correct permissions to upload once you have created the directory.
