I've been dealing with this problem for a while and can't seem to get it to work to save my life.
I am trying to do a webcomic, so I have installed WordPress on my server at HostUltra, set up the MySQL database, installed ComicPress theme and the ComicPress Manager plugin.
Originally I tried this via Fantastico, but for some reason via that way I have been totally unable to update itself. However, after going through and uploading all the plugins, themes and whatnot manually it appears to work.
Until I start trying to upload anything.
I can't upload pages, backgrounds, headers you name it. Every time I do it gives me this same error: "<i>Unable to create directory /home/bwillett/public_html/newstuff2/wp-content/uploads/2011/03. Is its parent directory writable by the server?</i>"
Any idea as to why this is happening? BTW, I tried adding a .htaccess file and that just broke everything.
WordPress version: 3.1
ComicPress theme: 126.96.36.199.3
ComicPress Manager: 188.8.131.52
all the most current versions of each. Help with this would be great.
