    "It doesn't look like you can use the file upload feature at this time because the directory you have specified doesn't appear to be writable by WordPress. Check the permissions on the directory and for typos."

    Trying to get the image upload to work but no luck - any ideas?

    MPM,
    You need to make the /wp-content or /wp-content/uploads writable. Connect to your FTP server using your FTP client software, find the /wp-content directory, right-click it, and set the permissions to 0777. Or create the directory /uploads inside of it, and give it that permissions.

    This is my current error - I've set the permissions on the file I want to upload to at 746

    Warning: copy(/home/mpmorg/public_html/300/img/06/Faces143.png): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/mpmorg/public_html/300/wp-admin/upload.php on line 170
    Couldn't upload your file to /home/mpmorg/public_html/300/img/06/Faces143.png.

    Isn't 777 a bit vulnreble?

    my practical solution to this problem:
    I manually created upload folders via ftp for the next 10 years each of which contains 12 folders from "01" until "12"

    this has cost me < 2 minutes of work and is probably less troublesome than discussing with the provider...
