abspath? Plugin Failuer & RSS failure (2 posts)

    PROBLEM 1 - PLUGIN FAILURE
    So when I download Buddypress and reupload it in wp-content/plugins, it gets uploaded but when i go to wp-admin and try to find the uploaded plugin to add it, its not showing.

    Then I use the wordpress page and try installing it from within the page as a zip file, and then I get this message - Unable to create directory /home/mysite/www/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/02. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    So I dont know why this is happening as I am a complete newbie.

    PROBLEM 2 - DASHBOARD - RSS FAILURE
    Here is what I see when I access my dashboard.
    Under WordPress Blog | Under Other WordPress News | Under Incoming Links
    RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: couldn't connect to host

    So do these problems have to do with leaving the ABSPATH just the way it was in the install files , that is?
    /** 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');

    OR is it to do with Proxy Host settings being left the way they were?
    define('WP_PROXY_HOST', 'proxy.example.com');
    define('WP_PROXY_PORT', '8080');

    I dunno the problem, but i sure want to rectify and get moving with installing buddy press and making sure everything is clockwork orange with my wordpress installation.

    Please Help!? :-)Please
