Hello. I've spent 5 days now trawling through multiple forums and threads – no joy. This seems to be a major problem with WP, as there are hundreds of requests for help; and hundreds of varying/contradictory answers.
Apple Mac 10.8.4 - all OK
XAMP local host - all OK
WP 3.6 - all OK
Theme unloaded - all OK
No plugins installed
Uploading images - not OK
"Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2013/09. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"
I do not understand this error message. As someone new to this "easy to use" blogging platform; I would really, really, really appreciate hugely, someone who could very clearly suggest a fix – in the simple terms needed for a beginner who is not a web savvy - but just really interested in getting started. Thanks.
