    I have reinstalled wordpress three times and still have no luck uploading images. I get the following message.

    Unable to create directory /var/www/domains/blog.2dezineart.com/docs/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/12. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    Please help, I am new at this stuff and really struggling.

  2. Go and check the permissions on the uploads folder. It needs to be 777.

    See http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions for more details.

    I have read the link you gave me, but I still have no idea where to go to make said changes. Are there specific pages I can open to make changes. I am sorry if I seem stupid. Thanks for the help...

  4. You have to go in via SSH or FTP to make those changes.

    Try this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions#Using_an_FTP_Client
