  • When I try to upload images, I get this error message.

    Unable to create directory /var/www/domains/ Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    What am I doing wrong??

  • You would have to go to your website’s control panel and change the permissions of the folder to at least 755 or 777 to be writeable by WordPress.


    Assign 755 recursive permissions to wp-content folder of your blog. It should resolve your problem positively. You can assign this permissions via SSH. If you do not have an access of SSH then you can contact your hosting service provider to grant the permissions.
