    Hi,

    I am trying to upload an image but am getting this error message.

    Unable to create directory /usr/www/users/mschlatt/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/04. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I changed the permissions on both the wordpress directory and the wp-content directory to be writable by the server, but yet I still get the error message. I had a similar problem when I was trying to customize my permalinks. Am I missing something? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The parent is wp-content. That should be 777 if you want to use the upload thing. No need to change permissions on the wordpress folder.
    Keep in mind that 777 is opening up your blog to be hacked!
