    I get this error when trying to upload anything

    Unable to create directory /var/www/vhosts/subverb.net/httpdocs/blog/wp-content/blogs.dir/2/files/2010/08. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Now, I have made the blogs.dir directory writeable, but there is nothing inside it for me to change? The Blogs.dir directory is completely empty?

    I currently have the main blog and a a second one (which is the one I'm trying to upload to)

  2. That means it can't actually create the folder structure it needs, probably because of ownership.

    You have to fiddle either with permissions or ownership of the folder (on the server) until WP can make the dirs for you.
