A few issues popped up at once, after months of trouble free operation.
1 - the flash uploader does not work for images
2 - the HTML uploader displays the following after I've selected a suitably small file to upload: > Unable to create directory...bla bla followed by :> Is its parent directory writable by the server?<
No settings on my server have been changed, I've cleared both Safari and Firefox caches on my desktop - not sure what to do. Running a Mac with X, Flash 10 (I cant go back to 9) I rely on a friend to take care of the "tech side" of this wp blog, and he manages server side setup. just not sure where this issue lies...
someone please hit me with the clue by four
