I can't upload my images! (2 posts)

    to begin: I'm using WP 1.5.1.2

    I've logged in as admin and tried to upload a file, but I keep getting the same message:
    "Couldn't upload your file to /home/cara/public_html/wp-content/logotake2small.gif"

    I've double-checked the Miscellaneous Options to make sure that the "Destination Directory" and the "URI of this directory" are indeed the recommended links.

    It doesn't say anything about write permissions and I have uploaded files before, so I'm not really sure what the issue is.

    Any suggestions?

    Can't really speak to 1.5.1.2 but in 1.5.2 if the directory you've specified in Misc Options is not writeable it gives a message similar to this when you click on the Upload tab:

    "It doesn't look like you can use the file upload feature at this time because the directory you have specified (/home/cara/public_html/wp-content) doesn't appear to be writable by WordPress. Check the permissions on the directory and for typos."
