    I recently got my own domain yay!... so I immediately installed WordPress. After that, I tried importing my old wordpress blog. I selected import rss blog and clicked import. Sadly, the following message appeared:

    Unable to create directory /hsphere/local/home/conjurel/gopokewiids.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/09. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I'm guessing I have some sort of permission problem? Any idea how I can make the parent directory writable by the server?

    Based on the error:
    directory /hsphere/local/home/conjurel/gopokewiids.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/09

    It seems that I'd start at 09 and work my way up until I found the existing directory and start with that one (hint: it'll probably be uploads)

    Guess what guys... I did it lol. Just had to change the permissions for the wp-content. Anyways, if I'm trying to import a previous wordpress blog, which type of import should I select? I tried doing rss and it filled my blog with crap... I'm not going to try that one again...
