Unable to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content).

I moved this site from it’s old home at http://altsounds.com/iamchris/ to here http://helloiamchris.com

It was a mostly smooth transition but when it came to updating the back-end I kept running into this error:

Unable to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content).

I browsed around a hile looking for a fix for this issue, when I came across the solution. When I moved to a new username on the server, I hadn’t setup an FTP account in cpanel. And to top that off, the FTP info in the wordpress backend was still pointing to the old server information.

Anyone looking into resolving this issue is likely to be seeing it for the same reasons.
