    It doesn't look like you can use the file upload feature at this time because the directory you have specified (/homepages/27/d120518085/htdocs/wp-content) doesn't appear to be writable by WordPress. Check the permissions on the directory and for typos.

    The directory 'wp-content' needs to have permissions of 755 or 766 or 777

    Your cpanel or ftp client should be able to change this for you.
