Can't upload images (jpeg) to post... (5 posts)

    Hi, I've been trying to UPLOAD images (photos, logos) to my posts from files in my computer. I keep getting the following message no matter what I've tried so far.

    Unable to create directory /home/smartini/smartinitiatives.com/html/wp-content/uploads/2009/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I am far from being an IT pro and don't understand the technical side or lingo, so help would be greatly appreciated in "layman's terms".

    Many thanks!

    /wp-content/uploads/2009/11
    chmod these folders to 777 with ftp client or host's file manager
    upload an image
    chmod folders back to 755
    should work from now on
