    Appearance > Backgrounds, when I attempt to save a background I receive the following error and it is not saved: "Unable to create directory /mnt/wlps/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/03. Is its parent directory writable by the server?"

    What does this mean and how do I fix it?

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.
