    Hey all,
    So this is my first go with XAMPP and wordpress so please to bear with me. So every time I try to upload any media (pics) I get an error reading "Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2012/12. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"......can anyone give me some insite on what this means? I can't upload a single pic and it's strating to drive me bonkers.

    Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2012/12. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    There is problem with permission. You need to chmod the uploads folder to 777 recursively.
