Problem Uploading to Media Library (2 posts)

    Over last week or so, can't install .jpg photo-images to Media Library.
    When I try and upload, get this message: "Error Saving Media Attachment"
    When I try and drag/drop, get: "xyz.jpg has failed to upload due to an error. Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2013/01. Is its parent directory writable by the server ?
    Mean anything to anybody ?
    I can get round this problem by creating a url and using this to upload images directly into a post (longwinded and irritating), but I *can't* set a 'Featured Image' because this can't be set via a url.
    Thanks for any input

    Permissions. Try lowering the uploads folder in /wp-content to 755 and failing that, 777.

    It means that WordPress is trying to create folders inside the uploads folder, but as it doesn't have correct permissions, it can't.
