Can't Upload Images to Directory (3 posts)

    I have been uploading photos for months and all of a sudden tried to upload an image and got the error message:

    Unable to create directory /home/youngna/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2007/08. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Does anyone know what I should change or why this would happen (seemingly) spontaneously?

    I once set my web hosts file size quota too low and one day I couldn't do anything and got that error. That's kind of embarrasing so don't tell anyone, OK? I have seen some web hosts that seem to run some sort of "fix permissions" script monthly or weekly and permissions "just change", not always for the better.
