    Every site I've upgraded has had its share of headaches, that I've overcome. However, this is new:

    "“ArtsCultureDist.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
    Unable to create directory /home/e/8/0/24382/24382/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2011/04. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

    Well,everything worked fine before the upgrade. Site in question is dtlna.org.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.

    I don't know what that means, but I'll try it. :)

    Just read it..might be a bit over my head, I'm afraid. I do this through FTP? I can't use my control panel?

    It's normally carried out using FTP, yes. Not sure what other applications your host might offer. Try asking them for assistance.
