    When I try to upload media it get this error: Unable to create directory C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/07. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    How do I get past this, how do I make the parent directory "writable"?

    Change the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767 or 777.

    I had the same problem, tried this and every other suggestion - then another member's reco worked:

    change the "Store uploads in this folder" setting (in Settings->Miscellaneous) from "/wp-content/uploads" to "wp-content/uploads". (eliminating the / in front of the string)
