photos not uploading (2 posts)

    Just finally managed to install WordPress after having had loads of problems, but now even though the rest is working fine, I can't upload photos. it keeps saying 'Unable to create directory, Is its parent directory writable by the server?' I've cleared the browser, updated Adobe etc but nothing is working. Is this likely to be a problem with my host or wordpress itself?

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.
