I have been trying to upload media to my media library without success. I keep receiving error messages about whether or not the directory and/or parent directory on the server is writable or not.
This is happening whether I try to upload .jpg, .doc, or .docx and whether I use the flash or browser uploader. It is also happening with Firefox or with IE (and both the browsers are up to date).
I have called my hosting company (Hostgator) and have been assured that both that directory and its parent directory are writable.
I'm a true beginner at all this so I request plain English details and I really appreciate your time in answering this question. Thanks in advance!
