    All of a sudden I cant upload images into posts after upgrading to 2.8

    Everytime I try, I get this message

    "Unable to create directory /home/fhlinux172/g/geomixes.co.uk/user/htdocs/wp-content/uploads/2009/07. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

    Which is odd as it was working perfectly fine before the upgrade, I tried creating a new 07 folder manually, but still get that same message. I cant even downgrade back to 2.71 as my host wont let me, so im stuck!

    Try deactivating all plugins and check to see if this resolves the problem. If it does, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    Switch to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems.

    I'm having exactly the same problem on a fresh install of WordPress 2.8 - deactivating all plugins and using the default theme makes no difference.
