    hello I am a Newbie and need to get everything carefully explained to me. I have just installed version 3.0.1 on my servers. So far so good. I wrote a post which showed fine. Now I am trying to upload a photo and go to Add media - select files - and find my file and clisk upload. I get this errormessage:
    “Forside1.jpg” has failed to upload due to an error
    Unable to create directory /home/sites/m/mesterbygg.no/wp-content/uploads/2010/11. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Looking in my server at wp-content, I do not find any upload directory. What to do?

    You will need to log into your server via FTP or file manager through your hosting's control panel, navigate to the home/sites/m/mesterbygg.no/wp-content/ folder, create a folder named 'uploads' and change the folder permissions for 'uploads' to 777.

    More info on file permissions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

    Good luck
