Media Upload Error After Update of WordPress

I was updating WordPress the other day. and afterward was unable to upload anything to the media library.

Here’s the Error:

Unable to create directory uploads/2023/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

I had attempted to edit permissions on the uploads folder and subfolders, which ended up not being the issue.

I found this solution, which worked out great.

Edit your wp-config.php, adding the following line.

define( 'UPLOADS', 'wp-content/uploads' );

before these lines:

/** WordPress absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
if ( !defined('ABSPATH') )
    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/');

/** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */
require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php');
