im attempting to migrate one wp site into another without losing any info on the 2nd wp.

in the wordpress inport tool, i am getting this error update:

"Before you can upload your import file, you will need to fix the following error:

Unable to create directory uploads/2016/07. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

i've deleted the folder and recreated it and in both instances keep getting the same error. inmotion tech directed me here.

Hello Rusia,

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your import. I checked the permissions of the parent folders in your account and they seem fine. I did notice that all the plugins and content were in place. Checking further it seems that the Live Support team was able to correct the issue for you. They say that the Uploads folder was formatted wrong. Please let us know if you are still having any issues.

Kindest Regards,
