Error message with New Blog Templates

I am getting an error message when I try to apply a blog template to a new site I'm creating. Here is the error:

File System Error: Unable to create directory /Volumes/CTLSites/ctlsites/multisite/sites/wp-content/uploads/sites/34. (New Blog Templates - While copying files)?

The site gets created, but it is not applying the template. Can you help?

    Hi @carrie,

    That looks like an issue on the server.

    Can you check the folder permissions of the uploads folder?

    Make sure they are set as chmod 755 (Recursive) & that the PHP/Apache user has write permissions.

    If you're not sure how to change permissions, you should be able to do this from your CPanel > Filemanager or via your FTP client.

    Using FTP client such as filezilla, just navigate to wp-content

    Then select the uploads folder & right click, select file permissions.

    Then select as in the screenshot.

    Hope this helps
