    I've enabled this feature, and set the permissions of "wp-content" very writable.
    I've also tried changing the path of the upload to no avail.
    I keep getting the same message that whatever folder I specify, including wp-content, isn't writtable.
    Any suggestions?

    Have you issued a "chmod 766 wp-content" command in a shell on the machine? Can you clearly confirm the folder is drwxrx-rw- ?

    Looking at the exact error message will give you a clue as to what the upload path should be defined as... the error message tells you how the server looks at the path.

    It doesn't look like you can use the file upload feature at this time because the directory you have specified (/home/smammers/public_html/wp-content ) doesn't appear to be writable by WordPress. Check the permissions on the directory and for typos.
    That is the exact message I receive, and I did confirm the permissions through the database.
