    Hi - hope this isn't too much of a boring newbie question. I've just set up a wordpress blog for my company and I'm having image upload problems. Can anyone tell me anything about this error message?:

    “Cool Wall.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
    Unable to create directory /var/www/vhosts/stagestruck.eu/httpdocs/wordpress/wp-content/uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    All advice very gratefully received!

    Best wishes

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