    When I hit the "add an image" icon in the media category, I have the option of browsing my hard drive for the image I want to upload. When I to so, I get a process that says "crunching" and when that is complete, I get the following message:
    Unable to create directory /home/a7775612/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2008/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    What am I doing wrong and how do I correct this?

    Still doesn't do it for me. I upload through the Flash version - get a red "can't move ..." error. I try uploading in the Browser version - nothing happens.

    Who thought this Media Library thing was a good idea? If a 'sticky' post the length of the one talking about how to "fix" uploading issues has to be posted, obviously this must be flawed enough that it should only be in Beta releases.

    I'm thinking of creating server space just for uploads - putting everything on that server, then just linking to that resource in all posts and all pages from all websites using WP.

    Sure hope there's a REAL fix in the next release of WP.

    A have turned the php safe mode off for wordpress 2.7 sites and at least browser upload version forks fine for me.
